Ever wonder how writers are able to churn out so much good content in such a little amount of time?
I wanted to share with you some of the secrets of the trade, so that you can in turn use some of these methods to write faster, turn out more books, and publish them as quickly as possible. Sometimes the greatest writers aren’t actually what they appear. Crazy, right?
Talk to text
Some writers will actually use “talk to text” features on their phones or computers that allow them to write WAY faster than they could actually type. For example, you might be able to talk at 250-500 words per minute, but that being said, you might only be able to type 100 words per minute. Obviously, your mind goes a lot faster than your brain does, so talk to text isn’t a bad idea at all. Only thing is you have to punctuate everything, that’s probably the only down side. A great upside is that you can do it while doing anything. I’ve done it while walking my kids to the park and the dog too, and with hands free options in the car too.
Speed typing/ transcription
Speed typing is for authors/ writers with mad typing skills. Usually, these kinds of folks have has specialized training in computers from a young age. But if someone can’t type super fast, they just have someone sit there and transcribe all the information and words for them, kind of like how scribes used to back in the day. This is a great way to do it because you don’t even have to think about punctuation because the ‘scribe’ will do it for you. My friend Tina was a scribe/ transcriptionist for the owner of solar companies fresno ca, and they did an incredible amount of writing / blog posting over the course of last year. He would just talk, and speak his mind and his expertise, and she would just type away. It’s crazy how many words you can actually type if you put your mind to it, and have a professional there typing for you.
The easiest way to write books is to not write them at all! A lot of authors choose to do this, and on the surface this seems wrong, but if you have someone who you’ve trained and you write off on the book, than it’s as good as writing it yourself. I know a lot of authors that do that and I actually have a lot of respect for them because they are so knowledgeable and have dedicated themselves to sharing the knowledge that they have. One particular author I’m thinking of does speeches all over the world – yes he gets paid well, but he also delivers incredible value. not just in those speeches but in the books that he writes (And doesn’t write through ghostwriting)
So if you want to become an elite author, think about those options to speed up your writing and your profitability as well. If you don’t you could be left behind, and no one wants that, right? Be your best! Try your hardest and great things will come to you.
As Goethe said:
Be Bold and Might Forces will come to your aid
Take that as wisdom and go out there and write till your heart’s content!
