You can try a variety of things. Some people like to clear their minds e.g go and sit in a field and stare at the clouds for a while or meditate. You can try reading one of the many books on creativity and thinking outside of the box e.d. de Bono. TED is a good place to stimulate creativity (www.ted.com). Elizabeth Gilbert, who wrote "East, Pray, Love" might help: http://www.ted.com/speakers/elizabeth_gilbert.html Or choose an 'app for it'. I have 'Oblique Strategies" by Brian Eno. Creativity blocks seldom last, though, so powering through it sometimes works.

I like to put some structure around my thinking. Have you thought about brainstorming problems on your own or with others? Try thinking about problems from various perspectives, not just your own. How would others see a problem, and how might a great solution look to them?

How to write broadsheet articles


How do you go about writing a Broadsheet article?

A broadsheet article reports the facts and details of an event, without an author's opinion (as would be the case in a tabloid newspaper). In general, they are unbiased but this is often not the case in real newsprint. The idea is for the reader to form their own opinion based on the given information Before you start writing you need to think who your audience is and who the article is aimed at, use the who, what, where, when, why and how format in your opening then concentrate on the important information in the main section of the article The article should be written in complete sentences, using formal language, and be broken up in to sections to help the reader navigate the article. The article would usually be about something serious and newsworthy, including current affairs, rather than commenting on popular media and celebrities. Don’t forget to add a title, date, and author’s name to the article. The title should also be formal and to the point, avoiding puns or jokey headlines as in tabloids. The first thing when writing a newspaper article is to find some event worth reporting on. A newspaper article, as others have said, reports the facts and details of an event.  As you might expect, there is no rising action, falling action or climax – this is not a story, this is the fact. Begin with the most important, critical points of the article. For example, Yesterday night around 11 pm, a man, George Bluth, 41 was shot in front of Parker Square Mall.  Police responding to the scene of the shooting cordoned off a small area near the doors of the mall, and did not respond to questions. Mr. Bluth was taken to the St. Catherine’s Memorial Hospital, and is currently in stable condition. According to Mrs. Bluth, George was walking home from a night with friends, and the police say that he was attacked by several youths…You should progress through the story, and each paragraph should contain less important facts than the paragraph before. As many others have said, you should use formal language as I have above.  Instead of “I asked the police…”, you should write “police reported that…” and so on.

Below is the structure and features of a broadsheet article:

Content

Emphasis on important global/national news, political, economic, social and cultural issues. Covers politics, finance, and current affairs. Often has a sports supplement.

Appearance

Few photographs, A2 size, black/white. Frontpage should be more informative, about public issues. The design emphasizes content through detailed articles in small print, with some emphasis on photographs and restrained use of color.  

Headline

It should be informative, factual, serious language, black/white.  

Article

Formal language, highly researched, factual details, neutral and unbiased, small print. Varied types of sentences. Emphasis on the information.
