Most people that have had several classes in English and Writing have had just as many people give advice on the best way to start apaper. Since this is a very common problem for writers to have it is a very important issue to address as soon as possible. There are a million ways to start a paper, memoire, book, article, or any other form of writing, but most people have only one or two ways that really work well for them. And, if you are the kind of person who sits down to write and cannot seem to get anything to sound right, you may want to try a strategy that some people may call elementary: Start from scratch.Most people lack the ability to simply sit down and write Shakespeare without editing once, twice, or half a million times; however, in most situations, you have the option to edit your work if you do not like something you have written. So, many peopleuse this editing step to really write their masterpieces. If you feel like taking a new approach to writing then try it. Simply sit down, get an idea of the topic, and write everything that comes to your mind. Do not worry about spelling, punctuation, flow of thoughts, grammar, or anything except for getting all your thoughts on paper. Now all that is left to do is edit. Re-word and arrange what you have written, delete and add details, and just keep editing it into a piece of art. Many people find this much easier than trying to sit down and come up with pure genius out of thin air. Also, if you happen to have a problem with forgetting or neglecting to proof-read your writing this will help, or force, you to read everything you write carefullyand edit your work.
