How to Write Faster Without Losing Quality (Or Going Insane)

How to write faster

I meet so many people who love writing.

Whenever anyone asks me what I do and they find out I’m a writer, they almost always say some variant of the same thing:

“Oh, I would love to write more!”

“I wish I could do that – but I just don’t have time”

Here’s to improving our writing and avoiding common content writing mistakes, all whilst making an ass of myself.

Business Writing Tips: How to Write Processes for Human Beings

Business Writing Tips

How to be a clear, engaging writer

Humans are bad at getting rid of things. Whether that’s possessions, habits or words, humans are stubborn maximalists at heart, which is why we need to write the way our brain works when taking in new information; it skims, absorbs snippets and pieces them together.

Writing is a skill of minimalism. Your first draft will be terrible, your second draft will be awkward, and your third draft won’t be much good either. Every time you redraft, you’ll find yourself cutting information and thinking ‘does that really need to be in there?’.
