Writing is seen as a gift but it can also be learnt and perfected. Almost everyone knows how to write well, they just don’t practice enough and they barely give it attention. While some very good writers are also slow some are very fast and they write with the speed of light. If you wan’t to be one of those fast writers then i recommend you follow my tips below

1. HAVE SOMEWHERE OR SOMETHING YOU CAN WRITE ON: It can be anything as simple as an old-fashioned paper notebook to an electronic file. When an idea inspires, write it down. And as other thoughts about that idea happens – simply add them in. Include URLs or scanned reference articles if that is relevant. I have often found that an article will flow easily when I have the idea and a collection of sub-ideas around it.

2. TRY WRITING AS FAST AS YOU CAN: When in flow, ideas just pour onto the page. The first draft can often be done in minutes. Then go back and edit your work.

3. HAVE SOMEONE WHO PROOFREADS FOR YOU: The ideal partner for this is more than an editor or proofreader, it is someone who absorbs the actual content you have written and adds to the substance. Someone who contributes ideas.

4. TRY WRITING PERFECTLY: This is directly the opposite of the suggestion in 2 (above). The theory of this sort of perfection is it saves the editing time. Editing can be more time consuming than writing. Writing knowing you will always go back can make you lazy. Writing as if you will never go back can help you create better copy.

5. HAVE A GOOD FRAMEWORK: Write a few words on what each paragraph will say. Starting with this can allow you to see what the order and natural progression should be. With a frame, it is easier to flush things out. Research where you need to, add sub ideas and fill the article in.

6. HAVE A TOPIC IN MIND AND PLANT THE SEED: To some extent, having the idea file does this. Planting the seed of an article and leaving it for a few days will keep it working in the background. I often will see relevant materials because I know I am writing an article about it. Ideas about the article often come to me when I am not thinking about it.

7. KISS (KEEP IT SHORT AND SIMPLE): Readers like succinctness. 500 word articles are more likely to get read than 2,000-word articles. And often adding words is not adding to the value being offered.

8. TRY NUMBERING IT LIKE I DID ON THIS ARTICLE: It allows ideas to be somewhat disjointed but still tied together. Bulleted articles are faster to write and faster to read. They also help the reader to focus on the key points.

In the end, though, quality always trumps quantity. Sacrificing quality for the sake of time is never a good trade-off. Google Penguin knows this and so do people.

Your goal in writing should always be to add value to the reader. That is what true quality writing does.
