How to write faster

I’ve seen various posts and lists online about how to write quickly. They all offer different sets of advice – some excellent, some perhaps less valuable.

To me, the number one tip would be to ensure you understand what you’re trying to say, before you start writing. If you’re muddled or not quite sure where you’re headed, you’ll go back and forth over your text and have to edit it into shape.

That’s not to say you need to have all the details clear in your mind. But if you have the overall theme set, and can summarise what your article or web page is going to say in one paragraph, you’ll be able to write faster, more clearly, and with less need for revision.

It’s worth investing the time to think everything through carefully, before you start typing – and then everything else will follow.
