  楼主不知有没有试过 freewriting。
  
  Wiki上有相关具体介绍http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_writing。
  
  这种练习说到底就像“我手写我心”,即不限主题、不管语法和修辞,写的时候不要考虑修改。只管放开写,想到哪写到哪,写不出来就写“写不出来了”。等自定的时间到了便停笔。
  
  写作时间可自定为5,10 或15分钟。
  
  此练习贵在每天都坚持。坚持两三个月,再前后比较,看看有没有收获。
  
  如果不是练翻译而是练英文写作的话,不如练习尽可能只用英文思考,英文写下来。也可以用你的方法,看/听一段英语新闻之后,再丢下报纸动笔写你的读后思考。
  
  我也在用这个方法。过段时间来看看是否有效果。

    楼主不知有没有试过 freewriting。
  --------------------------------------------------------------Free-writing simply requires you to write freely about a topic.You put down on the paper whatever comes to mind.Remember at this stage your purpose is to generate as many ideas as possible and to write them down without worrying about grammar,spelling,logic,or organization.Leave those things for late consideration.While you are writing,one idea will spark another idea.Some idea may not be usable,but it may lead to something better.Soon,you’ll be surprised to find you have too much to say instead of too little.
  In free-writing,you should resist the temptation of going back or stopping to find a word in a dictionary.it is possible that some of the things you have written are not related to the topic at all.It is possible that you have made many mistakes.It is also possible that you can not think of the exact word or phrase.If this happens,write down the very word that occurs to you.Do not consult dictionaries.They distract you and prevent ideas from coming out instead of removing the mental block.You may even write down something like"I hate this topic".But do not stop to cross it out.Keep on going and let your ideas flow.Do not stop for anything until you have written a large quantity,until you completely run out of ideas.
  
作者:jcater 时间:2009-11-21 07:36:06
  And LZ ,you may choose listing. This method simply requires you to list all words or phrases related to the topic.Don’t be in a hurry to cross out the seemingly unimportant ones as soon as you put them down on the paper.

  In 50 years’ time, i believe people will look back and wonder what the hell we were thinking desecrating our land and oceans like we do. We need to change our priorities, there’s too much emphasis on growing the economy through short-sighted, short-term gains, with no thought given to the long-term effects.在50年的时间里,人们会回顾和质疑我们究竟在想什么这样去亵渎我们的土地和海洋,我们需要去改变我们的重点,这里太多强调用短浅的目光,最短的时间去发展经济,而没有长远的打算。
