How to write faster

How to write faster | Health and Wellness |

"Significant gains in writing productivity can be gained by a combination of the right kind of practice and the right kind of tools. I’ve written about many of these tools and techniques previously, but I’ve organised all the advice here into a three step program, with links to useful resources.

Review your writing tools

Often the ‘industry standard’ software is not the best tool for the job. Take Word processors as just one example. You must move back and forth over the text to achieve flow and make sure everything is in the right place. If you can move around your documents more easily your writing speed will increase. Unfortunately the industry default, MS Word, does not, out of the box, perform this task well.

Anyone who has been reading this blog for a while will know this is the key reason I am a huge Scrivener fan. Scrivener is a different kind of word processor that enables you to write ‘chunks’ and move them around easily..."

Ra-eesah Mohamed's insight:

writing faster in class is a constant battle in lectures then learning how to write faster seems like a legit tool to use in everyday life.

This is about infotention -- "combination of the right kind of practice and the right kind of tools." I share thesis whisperer's enthusiasm for Scrivener for long projects or even short writing projects that have many moving parts.

Ra-eesah Mohamed's insight:

with summer comming up most of us are ready for fun in the sun. watchout for sunblock though. it might protect you from burning in the suns harsh rays, but it also prevents the body from producing any vitamin D. which in turn could cause it to be more harmful than useful. _ Ra-eesah Mohamed

Social Media isn't just for fun anymore. It's not for everyone either.  Some people are better off running thier business and letting a Social Media Agency manage their brand.
