Getting ideas out of your brain

Welcome back to Fall quarter! After the school break, maybe it’ll be hard to get back into school mode. One thing that may be difficult to start again is writing. I’m sure everyone has experienced writer’s block–that’s when you can’t seem to write anything. Your ideas are blocked. Well, then how do you unblock them? Luckily, there are 3 useful writing exercises that can help you gather ideas:

  1. Brainstorming (also known as mapping or clustering),
  2. Listing
  3. Free-writing

This stage of the writing process is known as Pre-Writing, when you gather ideas before you actually write your paper. Watch the video to learn how to use these 3 exercises. Recommended for intermediate to advanced learners (Levels 300+)
