Most of these disciplines can be figured out on the job—the technologies and procedures change quickly anyway, so the learning curve will likely never end.
But there’s one area of content creation that’s harder to learn: the process of writing. By this, I don’t mean the stringing of words and sentences nor the translation of ideas and images into text or graphics or video. What I’m talking about is the daily practice of creating content.
Over the years, I’ve developed a collection of tricks that help me work smarter and be more productive. Some of these tricks are psychological, helping me avoid writer’s block and quickly find the creative zone. Others are practical, helping me turn rough ideas into polished format in record time.
These aren’t ideas I typically share. They’re personal. They were developed and refined to overcome my own blocks and inhibitions. Would they even work for anyone else?
But over and over again, I’m asked about my own writing process—how I create content so quickly and consistently, how I keep the quality high, how I manage my time. There’s are countless books about how to write. There are far fewer books that discuss the writing practice, the daily tasks that make up a writer’s day.
And now, with so many of us all trying to achieve the same goals—content, lots of it, at an almost impossible pace—it’s time to spill the beans.
So here they are: my own top-secret content creation tricks. The secrets to my own writing practice and how I create quantities of quality content in record time.
