How do you write articles quickly?
This is a question that I have had burning in my mind for many years now, as I've noticed that I struggle to write a completed 500 word article in less than 20 minutes. So how do the professionals go about this, and ow can I start writing at such a rapid rate?
The easy answer: Don't.
If you are writing a 500 word article in 20 minutes, then 5 out of 4 times (No, that isn't a typo) it is going to be a garbage article.
If you could write a quality, Google friendly article in 20 minutes you would be wildly rich, and not be publishing on HubPages.
Happy New year to you both.
Of all the answers to questions I've read on HP, this answer must be about the best.
Haha, thanks Ghaelach.
It's rare that my forwardness is appreciated. I usually just get called a jerk ;-)
Very true,and I shall certainly keep that in mind from now on! Thank you for this great answer!
The topic you are going to write may
1. Be quite familiar to you,
2. Be somewhat familiar to you or
3. require a lot of research
Writing time is mainly a function of your familiarity with the topic. But expert writers finish even an unknown topic within 2 hours. The catch is to avoid/ somewhat avoid
the things dubious to you. You should not at any cost compromise quality. And please do not write points about which you are not sure as many readers take for granted whatever is written.
I sure wish I knew how to, and could, write quickly. Even my shortest hubs took me a few days and several hours per day to write. I guess most people just have faster brains than I have. I wonder, though, whether even a very fast writer can write something polished and substantial in just 20 minutes -- unless, if course, it is a topic in which he or she already has expertise and a passionate interest, or unless the article just rephrases some other article without contributing much fresh information or fresh perspective. But I suppose fast writers have abilities beyond what a slowpoke like me can imagine. I suppose whatever one's writing speed, the key to getting relatively faster and improving one's personal best speed is practice. Like, a piano player who is learning to play scales well at first plays slowly and then gets faster and faster with practice.
I struggle writing fast. My most viewed hubs took a day or two. My least viewed hubs took a few hours. To write good, quality articles, you have to put the time in. I am astounded by the people who write a hub in 20 mins.
