How to Write Better and Faster In 5 Steps

 For every blogger, writing is one thing that you need to become better doing.

You cannot afford to write things that does not resonates well with your readers or visitors.If you do, you know what that means...

That affect the number of readers or visitors you will have come to your blog.Peoples' attention online is short lived and if you don't catch their attention in the first 2 to 3 minutes then you may lose them forever.

You need then to continually perfect your art of writing.

Even Google in one recent research shows us that,they consider how long your content is in ranking you in their SERPs.

In this research,it says that average word count that catches the eye of Google should be about 1890 words.With this long form and well explained content you will be on your way to the first page of Google.

What this is telling you is that, you need to write comprehensive and vital information for your visitors.You must also be fast about it as well.

Efficiency is the word when it comes to writing better and faster.

Alright.Let's get down to business.

I will show you how to write better and faster in the following steps.

Step # 1. Do Not Multitask

You cannot do two or three things at the same time. you know...

You should not be watching TV and then be writing at the same time.

It would not work if you write and you are on another project that make you lose concentration.

See guys. Writing quality content for your readers is no joke.

If you really mean writing for your blog,you should put all your mind to it.This would make room for better thought and analysis of your thoughts before writing.

This thinking through makes you realize your mistake quickly than when you are writing and doing something else at the same time.

Step # 2. Put Your Thoughts in Core Concepts

If you are writing, you need to write down your core concepts. By this I mean, you should think of what you want to write about.

Who is your audience?

What message do you intend to pass across?

Think these concepts through and then write them down.

This would serve as a guide to what you want to write about and how to put your writing across to your readers.

Step # 3. Brainstorm Your Ideas

In brainstorming your ideas, you start gathering information about what you want to write about.

Let us say you topic is about Social Media. You then have to look for other blog or sites that contain quality information about social media.

Thank God for Google. You can go online to Google and search for social media.You have tons of information you can choose from and put together for writing.

However, you have to be careful you do not pick any content you see online.Look for factual and quality content especially from Google first page results that they throws at you.

Read as much as you can and note down some vital points related to your article on social media you want to write about.

After gathering your points,then you are good to move on to the next step.

Step # 4. Create An Outline

By creating an outline, you begin to structure your article.

Your article headline is the first on the list. Write down as many titles you see relevant to your article.

Then,put down your introduction.These are lines that will warm your way into the hearts of your readers.

You then put together sub titles that would buttress your points for your write up.

See that you make use of bullet points and allow for more white spaces.

Step # 5. Edit Before You Publish 

After you have a proper outline, you need to take your time to carefully edit your draft.

This editing would enable you detect wrong spellings, grammatical errors or omissions in your draft.

You would not want to have a write up that irritates your readers.Any badly written articles makes you lose a large number of readers.

The editing part is the most important aspect of the work you have started and spend so much time doing.

There are sites online that can help with editing of your writing.A good one is Grammarly.

When your editing is done right then your article is good for publishing.


In the word of Neil Patel:

"Similarly, if you restrict the time that you have to write an article to three hours, it’s more likely that you’ll complete it within that time.

The trick is to block time out of your day to focus on writing.
There are even more techniques that you can use to maximize your productivity within that time allotted.
My favorite is the “Pomodoro Technique.”
The Pomodoro Technique is where you work in 25-minute intervals with 5-minute breaks in between. Every four 25-minute sprints, you take a longer break.
Here’s a breakdown

  • Select a task to focus on.
  • Set your timer to 25 minutes.
  • Begin writing until your timer rings.
  • Take a 5-minute break after every 25-minute sprint.
  • Take a longer break every time you complete four 25-minute sprints."
So you see writing is nothing you can trivialize at all.
It is serious work, real hard work and working smart as well.
If you would want to write better and faster take these steps and you would not fall on your path to writing success.
