What is Writers' Block?

"Writer's block is a phenomenon involving temporary loss of ability to begin or continue writing, usually due to lack of inspiration or creativity." Wikipedia

Because we know how painful writer's block can be, our products help you to eliminate it. Since it happens to all writers, we put the apostrophe after the "s" making the phrase plural: hence our registered trademark: Unblocking Writers' Block®

Robert Stevens and Dr. Melvin Luthy founded WriteExpress Corporation in December of 1994. Their partnership began in 1989 when they created a Rhyming Dictionary in cooperation with WordPerfect Corporation. Luthy, a professor of linguistics and former chair of the Brigham Young University linguistics department, built the phonetic database and Stevens programmed the software. Later, Luthy and Stevens worked on their second project—to take the WordPerfect Rhyming Dictionary and transform it into the Novell GroupWise Telephone Access Server (TAS) Text-To-Speech Exceptions Dictionary.

The sheer volume of writing that these projects demanded brought to light a common problem that would-be writers face daily—writers' block. How does a non writer write something well? No tool existed to help amateur writers sound like experts. Word processing, beyond providing a thesaurus, had never addressed the problem of a blank screen. From that point, Luthy and Stevens began brainstorming how they could boost writers' confidence.

By 1995, they had settled on an idea to create the ultimate writing tool. They hired more than thirty editors to write the database. Some of the editors were part-time faculty in the BYU English department. Others were free-lance editors or English MA graduates from Brigham Young University.
Ron Millet, the father of full-text searching and indexing and principal author of Novell's patented QuickFinder search engine, willingly integrated his brainchild.

Brian Wistisen, a former writing tools tester at WordPerfect, spearheaded the testing effort.
Scott Faulring, a software usability expert, provided weekly design and usability feedback. The developers experimented with many ideas, testing, adjusting, and testing again until Faulring's team felt that anyone could use the software.

Luthy and Stevens released the software in March 1997, after twenty-seven months of development, and named their product WriteExpress Interactive Business Letters—designed to be the ultimate writing tool to help amateurs write like professionals.

WriteExpress software continues to win industry awards, including the prestigious "ZD Net 5-Star Editors' Pick Award"—and is a favorite tool among both English and non-English writers.

Our experience with the Easy Letters writing program taught us that some of our users could benefit from even more sales and marketing letters than we had included in the original Easy Letters program. Our development team has now created 900 additional sales and marketing letters to go with the full content of the original award-wining Easy Letters program, which contains over 2200 letters on 500 topics, with sample sentences and phrases. We call the entire new compilation of 3,000+ letters 3,001 Business & Sales Letters. You get the full benefit of the original Easy Letters program, plus 900 more sales and marketing letters.
