What to write when you don't know what to write

‘What are you working on?’

‘App constraints for my app.’

‘What do you have to do for that?’

‘It’s pretty hard, you have to make your app fit every single iPhone.’

I was talking to my brother about what he’d been up to.

‘Did you post what you’re up to on LinkedIn?’

‘I don’t know what to write.’

‘Write what you told me.’


‘Pretend like I asked you, “What are you working on?”, and write that.’


When you’re stuck trying to write something. Think about how you would say it to someone if they asked you about it.

Then write down how you would’ve answered.

If the words aren’t appearing on the page, think, how would they come out of your mouth?

Write like you speak.
