Are you a fast writer? By fast, I means someone who can write a publishable essay/ article of 600 to 800 words in a couple of hours.
This means not only that you’ve written the required words within the time frame, but also that you’ve researched, outlined, have written an initial draft, and managed to take a break of at least ten minutes before writing the final draft.
Writing fast comes with practice, because you’ve got yourself into a routine. You know yourself well enough to know how long something will take you to write, and you can also revise your own work.
You become a fast writer by training yourself
On my writing blog, I just posted “This week’s writing technique: use what you know” – it’s a useful technique when you want to write fast. Use this technique to practice writing faster.
If you’re thinking, WHY do I want to write fast?
The answer is: because often opportunities to make a sale will come, but they need you to produce a piece of writing quickly, so that you can take advantage of them. An editor might ask you for an article within 24 hours because she has a hole in a publication she needs to fill. You might be browsing online and find a writing competition that closes today. You might learn of a new publication and want to become one of their stable of writers – you do this by sending the editors something immediately, as soon as you hear of the opportunity.
Learn to write fast. It will do wonders for your freelance writing career.
