Poll: New Ideas

Literary writer, Anais Nin, once said, “My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.”

Ideas for business writing can come about in the same way. Sometimes you think of great ideas while working on another project, taking a break or when you’re outside of the office all together. Other times, however, sitting down and writing is the best way to develop and test new strategies, concepts, topics or ideas.

Pursuing fresh ideas is vital for producing engaging and vibrant writing, whether a novel, email or power point presentation. Do you find yourself thinking up new ideas outside work? Or are you struck by them while writing?
