You’re about to start another heavy load of college course work including a public relations writing class, and you’re thinking, “Where’s the fun in that?”

Well here’s some great tips that can make a writing class fun and successful. So, take a break–it’s actually recommended, grab a leftover Reese’s peanut butter Christmas blob…uh, tree, and get ready to laugh and learn.

Kristin Piombino, associate editor for, will have you laughing, if for no other reason than to keep from crying as you think about all the writing you have to do this semester, while reading her post “8 struggles every communicator understands.”

Every struggle she mentions is real, but the way she talks about them is kind of funny too. If you’ve experienced any of these struggles, you probably didn’t see any humor in the situation at the time. However, I am hoping after reading Piombino’s post, you will face these writing woes with more wit than worry. And if you take the time to read the helpful links, you will approach your writing with more determination than doubt.

From writing bathroom limericks to binge eating, to detoxing your inbox to learning to take an unplugged vacation, take some advice from public relations professionals who know the pressure of writing deadlines but have discovered fun and creative ways to get the job done.

Speaking of creativity, it seems to be the secret ingredient in making writing fun and successful. Want some ideas to get your creative juices flowing? Check out this video by Japanese design firm To-Fu.

In the meantime, pull up a chair and let’s talk.
