Becoming A Paid Freelance Writer - 10 Techniques To Write Faster


It's very easy for anyone to become a freelance writer but perhaps not so easy to become a paid freelance writer. One of the keys to your success could well be your ability to write faster and better. How can you do this?

  1. Have a set time in which you write.
  2. Have a set routine in which you write.
  3. Select topics with which you are familiar or which are easy to research.
  4. Plan your writing and use an outline.
  5. Improve your typing technique.
  6. Have the best possible writing environment.
  7. Always start early.
  8. Set up templates.
  9. Study examples of quality writing.
  10. Learn how to polish and proofread with efficiency.

If you set aside a particular time each day when you will tackle your freelance writing tasks, you get yourself into the habit of writing and hopefully writing better. Your speed will increase as the activity of your writing increases.

Work out a strategy or a routine in which you tackle a freelance writing task. Know about planning and researching. Use this routine on a regular basis. It will help you to write faster.

Without a doubt it is easier for you to write about topics in which you already have some detailed knowledge or with which you are familiar. If you particularly like a certain topic then so much the better.

No matter how simple the writing task before you, always have a plan or an outline. Never simply dive in and start work. A little bit of time spent in planning will help in the preparation and obviously in the actual speed of your writing.

You have to type the material you send as a freelance writer so look for ways to improve your typing technique. The better a typist you become, the less time you take to create the work in the first place.

If you don't have a sensible and helpful writing environment, your writing speed will decrease. This is a reference to the ergonomic furniture you use, the lighting and the lack of distractions. Improve your environment and you will improve your writing speed.

Procrastination is the thief of time. If you are awarded a freelance writing task, do not put off starting and certainly do not try to tackle it was little time to go before the deadline. The sooner you start writing the easier it is to complete.

Take advantage of the software you are using to create templates into which so many of your freelance writing tasks can be placed. In only a matter of minutes you can create a template with margins, font size and type and other aspects of your writing so that this template can be used over and again with your various writing tasks.

You can always learn from others and particularly when the work you are studying is of an outstanding quality. Take the time to look over freelance writing work which has won high praise.

The speed with which you finish a particular freelance writing task does not only include the research and the actual writing but also the checking at the end of the task. Learn how to become efficient as you proofread your work and thus improve the time it takes to create quality material.
