In any corporate setting, the ability to write well is enormously valuable and can provide relative job security. But the ability to write well quickly—that’s pure gold.
You might be thinking:
I write at the speed I can; how can I write faster?
It takes practice, of course, and requires the ability to translate thought into prose in close to real time. Speed doesn’t come overnight. Revolution is always a process—not an event.
Custom-Writing.org has published a 15-step infographic that outlines rules, tips and techniques to juice your writing speed:
1. Silence your inner editor.
2. Structure is everything.
3. Defeat distractions.
4. Track your words-per-hour.
5. Format at the end.
6. Write what you know.
7. Keep all notes in one place.
