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.

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?

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!
