How to write faster, 15 tips

Are you finding blogging more time-consuming than you expected?

Many people write me asking for productivity tips.

After all, I work outside the home as a teacher with papers to grade and a yearbook to make.

You have obligations besides blogging as well, I’m sure.

You can have the best of both worlds if you write faster.

Today’s guest author offers 15 tips to teach you to write faster for free (other than the cost of an egg timer). These tips can be applied daily.

In addition to offering 15 tips explaining how to write faster, today’s guest author shares them in an impressive infographic.

15 Ways to Write Faster

by Daisy Hartwell

How often does this happen to you: You sit down at your desk, determined to write brilliantly, only to find yourself stuck after a couple of sentences?

No matter how skillful a writer you are, sometimes the right words don’t come out fast enough. You just peer deeper into the display, look helplessly all over the room, waiting for some idea to have mercy on you and pop into your head.

Writer’s block and the ever-present fear of the blank page are notorious problems for students and writers all over the world.

Is it possible to overcome this horrible predicament and get on with writing at a decent pace?

Well, we are glad you asked.

You see, boosting your writing speed takes a little bit more than just training your fingers and becoming a master of the pencil and keyboard. Sure, developing your fine motor skills is never a bad idea, but dexterity alone is very unlikely to make you a top-notch writer. Most of the time, it is the stuff in our head that gets in the way.

And, luckily for you, we have come up with an awesome infographic that will help you clear your mind and pick up your writing pace.

There are plenty of techniques, numerous self-help books, lifestyle guides, and even special courses that purport to make you more productive. And that’s to say nothing of numerous motivational speakers who claim to have helped countless Hollywood celebrities become more industrious.

But who has time for all that when you need to write faster today?

You will probably agree that “15 free, simple tips” sounds a bit better than “100 Recommendations for a Super Awesome Writing Career for $ 19.99.” For now, our 15-tip infographic will do just fine and provide you with the essential tips for writing faster.

And you know the best thing about these tips? They are simple and can be put into action pretty much right away.

For example, were you aware that something as common as a short walk around your room can be extremely beneficial to your performance as a writer?

Apparently, there is a direct connection between physical activity and intellectual productivity. However, it doesn’t mean that you should bench press, do push-ups or run laps around your neighborhood whenever you are stuck on a piece of writing. Just let your eyes and brains rest for a while, and they will be ready for more work in no time.

Once you try these tips, you will understand how to keep the right balance between mind and body, how to get better at time management, and how to use your inner critic to your benefit. Yes, even that grumpy old rascal can become your ally if you treat him or her well!

So why wait for that looming deadline to get any closer? You can enhance your writing skills today, so there is no need to put self-improvement off any longer. Check out our infographic and write faster today!

    I am really really really good at #1. REALLY good. But it took me a minute to get clear on my writing voice, by simply practicing my writing daily for many years. I wrote. The words flowed. Everything came together nicely. Meaning I wrote faster and faster because I simply did not listen to my inner critic, I did this until the critic shut up for good. Writing my eBooks was the impetus though. I wrote, edited after, lightly, then self-published. Many writers want to make things perfect.I just write who I am, feeling clear on it, so I write quickly.


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ryan,
      Thanks for coming by to comment on my guest author’s post and infographic.
      Inner critic? I read and edit as I go. I read again. I put in a graphic and may read again. Then, I’m done. If I feel I did my best, it is what it is. On to the next.

    Hi Janice,

    I’m always please to come by your website because I know for sure that there must be valuable information to digest. I love the article.

    For me, I us an outline to map-out what I want to write about in my article, and arouthe temptation to edit while writing. After completing my outline, I just hit the hit keyboard and keep going until am done.

    However, let’s not forget the fact that I had to practice many times to make it happen.

    Thanks so much for sharing Janice. I already scheduled it for posting.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Moss,
      Thank you so much for scheduling my post for sharing. I appreciate it.
      I also outline my post with the subheads before I write and then fill in. I feel organized that way and it feels like I’m finishing quicker. Thanks for writing. Great to see you. Have a good weekend.

  6. Penelope Silvers

    Love, love love! Infographics are so fun and get the point across quickly. Silencing the editor is the biggest mountain for me to climb, but I’m gaining ground! Thanks for sharing.

    • Janice Wald

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jane,
      I was excited to read your comment that you felt this post will improve your writing skill. I am glad to hear. Thanks for writing to tell me.

  9. Lisa P Sicard

    Hi Janice, I love #8, I need to do that one. I certainly do write in the mornings as it’s my best time but many mornings I think I don’t have enough time and before you know it days go by with no writing – not good. I love your infographic! Thanks for all the tips and motivation for this one today.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Lisa,
      Great to see you here. Thanks for coming by. Since I work as a teacher, I only write in the mornings on the weekends. Even then, I am rushing to make appointments so writing in the morning is rare.
      I’ll write after school or when I get home. I also write after dinner or after my husband and I watch a little TV together. Thanks for commenting.

  10. Ashley


    Thank you so much for the tips! Sometimes I am able to write something quickly, but at other times I am stuck staring at my screen for an hour before a single word is typed. I like the idea of summarizing what I will do each day before the day starts. It should really help!

    Thank you!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ashley,
      I read your comment about staring at the screen without writing a word. I hope you don’t mind, but I took the liberty of bringing you the link to my last expert interview. 45 experts explained how to avoid writer’s block
      Thanks for coming by this week to comment on my post.

  11. Ramit

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ramit,
      I was excited to read your comment. I’m so glad my post will help you achieve your goal of writing faster. Thanks for writing to tell me.

  12. Pilar

    These are some really good tips! I find it very hard to write in a short time – blog articles take me forever! Will definitely put these into practice 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Pilar,
      Blog posts take me hours as well. However, after blogging for 3 years, I can say things do go quicker in time. The more we get used to doing something, the quicker it goes. Thanks for writing.

  13. Debbie

    These are really great suggestions! I particularly like the exercise break, setting a timer, and counting my words in a specific period of time. Thank you, Janice. <3 Blessings.

  14. Daisy Hartwell

    Thank you all for your kind words about the infographic! I’m happy that so many people found it useful 🙂

  15. Hugh Roberts

    I’m a big believer in #11, although I do know people who also excel at desks that look like they’ve never seen any sunlight, let alone a duster.
    I love the tip in #12 (and am going to put it into practice), and #13 is so true – mornings are always best for me. But, see a red or green squiggly line, and I just can not help myself.

  16. Janice Wald

    Hi Hugh,
    You commented on #11 – #13:
    I can’t choose the most productive time of the day. I pick when I’m free to write. However, after school from 3 to 5 works well.
    I am definitely comfortable.
    As far as the green and the red squiggly lines, I can’t help myself either. most of the commenters said they don’t care if they can’t write faster; they must fix the errors. Thanks for commenting and sharing.

    • Hugh Roberts

      Hi Janice,

      Thanks for getting back to me. I’ve just left a comment on another of your posts and noticed that there is no box which I can tick so I know when you have replied to my comment. That’s why it’s taken me time to get back to this comment which I see you replied too, but I had no idea that you had replied. I’m sure you had that box we could tick for being notified of followup comments, or was I dreaming it?

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Hugh,
        Yes, I did have that box. Strange since I am notified when people respond to me in my email. I’ll check it out. Thanks for letting me know.

  17. Ravi Dixit

    I have visited your blog the first time, and I found the really helpful blog post. I like infographic you have shared above I’ll be using it on my own blog post and give you a link back.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ravi,
      1. Welcome to my blog! You mentioned it was your first visit.
      2. Thank you so much for linking back to me. I’m sure you know what a boost it would be to my SEO. Thank you!
