If you decided to write a novel what would your novel be? Are you the romance type, a journalist, a broad thinking fictionist, or the biography focused author?  It’s strange how our personalities can come out in writing where it wouldn’t otherwise.

You can now establish and write your entire portfolio online and it’s free to set up your own blog and network to manage your ideas to promote yourself. With so many freelance writers popping up all over the world via Blogs and other media outlets it’s a great time to be involved or love writing. It’s easy to work for yourself and contribute articles here and there as you like. Excel Assist is also great for finding freelance positions you can do on the side.

A technique to do if you have this problem is to begin writing your thoughts even if they don’t make sense. The act of typing any words can inspire you brain to kick in.
