Whether I’m writing a chapter of a book, a report, or indeed a blog post, I keep the title in front of me. I write on a computer but always have a notebook and pen next to it. I jot down the title when I am planning my writing and leave the title visible when I am putting the piece together. It serves as a reminder to keep the writing focused and not stray off-topic. I may even underline key words in the title. This technique is useful for any type of writing.

Printing a draft is like taking out a map halfway through a journey to remind yourself of where you’re going.
Setting a point of no return forces you to stop, take an objective look at your work and spot any wrong turns before you go any further.
Maintain the flow of your writing by focusing on the main ideas.
