Abstract: This essay highlights two examples of fiction writing techniques which may be useful to legal writers as a means of illustrating the greater potential that exists. First, the essay considers exercises for maximizing writing productivity through self-assessment. The exercises that fiction writers use to know themselves and enhance their processes can, with some adaptation, be vastly helpful to the legal writer in gaining skills and confidence. Second, building upon this initial self-assessment exercise, the essay examines the commonalities fiction and legal writers share in beginning a writing project. This essay offers suggestions as to how novelists grapple with such issues and, in particular, details an exercise intended to get the words flowing. The writer gains confidence and develops a body of material with which to work. By combining the self-assessment and creativity jumpstart, legal writers - like their fiction writing counterparts - can maximize both their productivity as writers and the quality of the writing they produce.
