Writing Web Articles Fast

Most good content writers out there will write good articles of 400 to 500 words in around 20 minutes. This might seem like a long time for some people or short time for others. The truth is that this is around the medium time frame for such an article, especially if we are writing for the Internet. Let us think about some ways in which you can write your articles faster than you are already doing. We are basically talking about writing for yourself, for your sites and not necessarily for others. That is another thing we will discuss in the future and is also linked to Re-Writing text.
  • 1. First of, you need the main ideas of the article. Lay them out in a list form so that you know what you want to touch in that article. For instance, if you are thinking about writing on the benefits of buying one software, your list needs to be exactly these benefits and nothing else. Make sure that you also read The Basics of Web Content Writing to properly understand why.
  • 2. Look at the list you created! Most writers end up writing too many ideas and the end result is an article that is too long and very hard to follow.
  • 3. In order to be successful, at the moment in which you get a good idea put it down on paper and if you can, start writing about it!
  • 4. If you feel that the article you are working on is not working right then you should stop. Simply work on something else or go for a walk! You will see that there are moments in which you simply can not go faster and you are actually going really slow.
  • 5. One trick that some content writers have is working on 3 to 4 articles at the same moment. They simply work 5 minutes on the first, 7 on the second and so on. Then cycling! Keep in mind that this basically works when you are in a writing flow and might be bad if you are not. All depends on the style you have developed or will develop in the future.
I hope these small tips can aid you a little in your content writing experience!
