New series "Free the writer within" How to Write Faster: 12 Unusual Productivity Hacks

I consider myself fortunate to be connected with some of the best writers out there, and always have an unlimited source of motivation. So I decided, every alternate Saturday, starting today, I will post something about writing: writing tips, inspiring quotes about writing, book excerpts, interviews with writers, guest posts by published authors, and so on. I promise to make it fun and interesting. Do check in, and enjoy! All feedback is welcome. I am calling this series…

Free the writer within!

How many times have you started writing, say, a blog post but have allowed it to collect dust in the drafts? Of course you mean to polish it and publish it “some day” but you’re never satisfied with what you’ve written, or you find that you just cannot finish writing it.

Days are hectic, and as writers–and bloggers juggling jobs and writing–we’re always open to tips and hacks to help us write better, write faster, write more. We are ready to be inspired at all times, especially when we imagine strange things like writer’s block, and now, its cousin, blogger’s block.

To inaugurate the “Free the writer within” series, I am shining the spotlight on Henneke Duistermaat of Enchanted Marketing. Please do visit her site, especially her “About” page – I promise you’ll be enchanted!

She is one of my all-time favorite writers. Her writing is warm and conversational yet precise and fluff-free, and chock-full of takeaways. She’s a delight to learn from. Her actionable writing advice is easy to consume. She’s also an amazing artist and creates just the kind of art I am in love with. She is the creator of “Henrietta” (starring in the infographic below).

In her post, “How to write faster: 12 unusual productivity hacks,” Henneke offers 12 actionable tips to speed up your writing.

Enjoy her infographic.

Wonderful article and particularly the infographics made reading very interesting! Desperately need some inspiration like this…now that my writing is all erratic. My drafts have been gathering dust for too long now 🙁

It’s such a pep post about writing fast. We have so much distractions and fear. I will try to set a routine with breaks, hoping ideas to flow in. I took almost a month break since I wasn’t able to complete a Halloween fiction blog which I divided into three parts and of course some drafts lying on the blog for nine years. Yes! I swear there are two of them plus me swimming with the rom-com romance. Not to mention the novel that I haven’t touched for three months. Fear and fear hehe. Thanks for this one Vidya.

Happens to all of us, Vishal! Now the thing to do is to work on those drafts, one at a time and publish! Breaks can be tough, because getting back is always tough. Hugs! Glad you liked the post!

It is very true Vidya. Thanks for this wonderful infographic and I could find myself saying yes, I tried that for some and to a few more, Yes, I want to try that. Luckily, I finished the drafted Diwali post and posted whatever I had written instead of pondering more about it and postponing it. I am glad to read this post after publishing mine. I feel that sense of accomplishment and enjoyed writing it because it was done in the little time I made to write it for a week and a half. I am so glad about this series and I will definitely find it useful. Earlier I suffered from writers block, but now it is all about time management and planning how to fit the writing into my day. 😊
