Not quite found the best way to force words to appear on a page when they just won’t come? Different writers have different ways of moving things along when that happens. If you haven’t quite found the best way to get your writing done in those times, here’s one to try: write your conclusion first.
Most writers start with the introduction, since it’s the sequence that feels most organic. Others skip the first paragraph to jump right into the body of the piece. Some just write whatever comes up first — whether it’s the first paragraph, the fourth or the last one.
If you’re struggling with putting words to paper, then writing the conclusion paragraph first might help. When you do that, take on the attitude that the paper is finished — like all your points have been clearly made and every single fact have been presented. Drum up something entirely made-up if that’s all you can really muster. Just write the conclusion.
While the conclusion you write will likely need to be revised later (when the rest of the body is really done), this helps you gain perspective on what you will need to write about in the paragraphs preceding it. If it works, it could be the boost you need to get cracking on the other parts of the document.
