Guys, How Do You Overcome a Writer’s Block Depression?

Quite often I hear academic writers grumbling at writer’s block telling they need a break. As you can guess, the next problem, they complain about, is a low financial position. So, today I want to share with you some hints on how to subdue such an ‘illness’ without discounting your work.

As for me, the most effective way is to entertain yourself. Watch a film, for example. Each movie is a short story that isn’t taken off the mark. All films are based on people's experience. Consequently, they can come in handy to overcome any troubles.

Here is a list of my suggestions for you.

1. Central Intelligence, 2016


Remember that nothing in this world is impossible! If you like comedy films, you will enjoy this picture for sure. Do you remember your school time? Was there a person you have been scoffing at? Be cagy; they might knock your door right now. To put bluntly, see how a whipping boy has become a stand-up guy.

‘I worked out six hours a day, every day, for last twenty years straight!’ - this was his peg to hang success on, so why not make it your own motto, huh?

2. Dallas Buyers Club, 2013

Some people face problems that are more complicated than a writer’s block. This film isn’t funny, but it will make you muse on other issues to realize that lack of inspiration is not, actually, an issue!

A man was an AIDS sufferer, but he has made the call not to give up and stand up for his life. Having found some medicines for AIDS, he starts surreptitious sale to help other people who suffer from such a malady.

3. War Dogs, 2016


It is always useful to mull over the real-life problems, but at times, we want to watch something relaxing as well as fun. In this case, I recommend you come down to this movie. This picture, based on real life events, shows how two simple mates have reached their dream, having inked a $300-million deal.

The main slogan of the film is “An American dream”, so bear in mind, if you desire, you will hit the target for sure! 

4. Hacksaw Ridge, 2016


If you are a drama fan, you will find this picture quite impressive as well as inspiring. It dwells upon the story of a man who was proclaimed objector during the World War II due to his unwillingness to kill people.

This film will help you realize that nothing should make you give up your views of life as well as your personal goals.

5. The Founder, 2016


Do you like McDonald’s? Sure, yes! At times, we all want to do or eat something we know won’t do any good for our health. Here is a movie that will tell you the full story of such a household name.

The slogan sounds as follows ‘He took someone else's idea and America ate it up!’ Keep in mind that it is not always needed to make up topics that are created from scratch; look through the other’s work and specify their subject to make up your own mustard.

Ray Kroc says that only one thing has helped him – persistence! So, show your perseverance at writing, and craft this all-fired piece!

Most people consider films, books, songs and other kinds of entertainment as tools to relax and abstract themselves from the daily grind. Of course, they help us have some rest, but it is not the only benefit that we can gobble up.

If you dig a bit deeper, you will see that films have many beneficial sides. The only thing I want to add is:

“Stop pitying yourself! Man up and show your best self! In case, you haven't enough motivation, choose a film from this list and let it charge you with motivation!” Enjoy, my dear. Hope to hear about your success soon :)

5 Ways to Capture Readers within First 10 Seconds

It is said that people are met due to their clothes, consequently, it can be said that writers are met by their value. But at times, it happens that even useful writing does not impress the reader. In this case, there are some hints on how to outfox your audience and make them read your paper till the very last word.
The best place to hook a prey is an introduction. If you do not do this here, they won't be motivated to continue reading as there is nothing ‘special’. Get rid of such denials using these simple hints. As a result, you will gain not just tens of followers, but will stand out from others for your mojo.

1. Warning


Nowadays, there are so many factors that influence people’s lives. Searching for the most valuable ways to solve these problems, people would be pleased to hear some additional reasonable advice from you. Are you, actually, afraid of anything? Choose an issue that currently harasses you not to sound workshopped.
Fears are the most effective tools that make people rethink their lives. We always try to do our best to avoid things that may hurt us or our families. Using a warning in the introduction you make people think about a particular issue, perhaps even familiar with them.
As a result, the trick is done, you have hooked the reader, and they will read your work till the end to find some more information as well as ways on how to resolve the problem.

2. Recent News


Modern people are quite busy. They work hard, take care of their families having even no time to meet friends once a week or to read news. So, why not provide these busy bees with some breaking news that would save their time searching the web, or thumbing public prints.
If you mention something hot in your introduction, it will help you involve the readers in your paper. But in this particular place, to hit the target, you have to do a profound research beforehand and study your audience well to dwell upon the news that is on point for these people.

3. Striking Facts


People are very curious creatures, so anything that seems interesting will capture them for sure. Knowing that can help you impress such a great number of readers you have not even dreamt about.
Find something ‘spicy’ for the particular audience and put it into your introduction. Again, you have to study your audience well in order not to bomb out.

4. Personal Experience


Even more than often, people ask their closest friends and relatives for help if they can’t resolve a problem on their own. It’s time to snatch at a chance and creep into your audience’s favor!
If you start your paper telling about the problem that you have recently faced, those people who are fighting the same issue, willing to tackle it ASAP, will be involved in reading the paper till the very end to learn how you have handled the particular issue on your own. Even those who are not in a tight corner would be glad to get armed to prevent the trouble - we always want to be ahead of the curve.

5. Interesting Observations


People like learning something new, but nowadays most of them do not have enough time to surf the web searching for some new inventions. Consequently, it would be a great idea to dwell upon the novelty that you have recently faced. Get up to speed on this item in your introduction and be sure that all the curious readers will be caught.

As you can see there is nothing impossible if you want to capture as many readers as possible. Do your best to present a great introduction involving your audience in the whole text. Use these ideas to create truly impressing pieces that will easily gain you a thousand of readers.

What Did You Achieve? Let’s Say Goodbye to 2016’s Monkey and Meet the 2017’s Rooster



The 2016 is almost over and it’s time to sum up all the things that have happened to us during this year. At times, it was quite hard, but I am sure that there were a lot of pleasant moments that we will recall in 2017 with smiles on our faces.
As for me, the year of monkey was really crazy and inquisitive as they are themselves. A great number of activities have not been letting me be bored and sit without any work. There was really no time to search the web in order to find some activities to take part in. Actually, I’m not complaining, I really like these moments when I do what I like. It is said that our life is a motion, and I totally agree with it.

So, today I want to share with you the most important things that have happened to me, and that I will remember forever.

Long-Awaited Trip




I think every employed person will understand me that sometimes it is quite hard even to devote some time to our relatives and friends. But, even if we have some spare days to relax, it’s hard to completely forget about the job. This year has provided me with the opportunity to get a long-awaited trip to Spain. Actually, it happened very spontaneously and I wasn’t ready for such a turn of events, but at one moment I have told myself ‘Now, or never!’ and set off on a journey.

Guys, do not neglect chances that you get on the spot in order not to regret untapped opportunities.

Writing Challenge




The best way to sharpen your writing skills is to practice them again and again. This year I have held a writing contest that is very similar to the well-known annual NaNoWriMo. When NaNoWriMo’s main benefit is that you can try your efforts in fiction writing, my challenge has a bit different aim. It was just for academic writers. Having announcing the challenge, I even did not think that such a great number of academic writers would embrace the idea. I have met a lot of great writers who are just on their start of the career path, but I’m sure that they will reach their target dreams and will become professionals.

Remember, nothing will come to you by itself! You have to do your best as well as to make efforts to reach your goals. Hope that next year we will see yet more academic writers taking part in our contest.

Member of the Hanging Committee




Practicing for academic writers is everything. They try to do this everywhere, as with the help of modern technologies they can do this easily. This year EssayLancers has held a writing challenge, and I was suggested to be an expert. At first, it seemed quite hard and I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea, but how I would know if I didn’t try. Thus, I made a decision to try myself in this sphere. To be honest, it was so great that I am already looking forward to the next chance of such an experience. I was really impressed that such a lot of freelance academic writers are interested in taking part in such kinds of activities. One of the conclusions that I have made is that it was a good practice for me as an editor and proofreader.

So, I have shared with you some of the best events that I faced last year. Hope you passed it also with pleasure and do not regret anything that was done.

In the conclusion, I want to wish you all the best in 2017. Let all the pleasant things still stay with you, and all the worst ones be left in the 2016. Wish you to reach all your goals as well as set new ones! Roosters are quite persistent, so let’s follow the main character of this year and purposefully be on a course to the success!

Happy New year, friends!
