7 Ways to Crank Out Articles

Leo has posted an article on Freelance Switch that gives some great life hacks that you can use to get those creative juices flowing, and putting those fingers to the keyboard.

He starts off with a great bit which empathizes with his audience, and honestly, it felt like he was writing about me. I have had periods of time where I have nothing worthwhile to say, but my job is to write. Sometimes it seems next to impossible, and so it is nice to see that others feel as I do.

But writing productivity doesn’t come easy. All writers grapple with procrastination: you know you should be writing right now, but you find a million other things to do instead.

It’s not an insurmountable obstacle. You can squash the distractions and procrastination and crank out articles like a maniac with some simple hacks.

His tips include things like writing first thing in the morning, shutting off all distractions, and spending time brainstorming. If you want to read the rest of his tips, I suggest you check out his post on Freelance Switch.

    Oh, poop. That link no longer works. I was excited to read the article, as I am sitting here procrastinating when I should be writing. Guess that means I’ll have to just buckle down and write.
