How do people write articles so fast?

143 replies
It takes me at least an hour to write like 400-500 words for an article, but I see people throwing around figures like 5 articles an HOUR. I just don't get how people are writing articles that are unique in such a short time.

In part I understand I go slow because I'm only used to academia, but I do understand that an article in 10-15 minutes is still a feat.

What are the tips or advice the fast, quality writers give?

(I should post a disclaimer that I don't know about the QUALITY of the articles these people talk about, but usually people say their own work is good LOL.)

:confused: :confused: :confused:

      Both of these are excellent tips. Bullet points make it much, much easier to let the article "roll off the fingers" without you really having to think to much about it and taking it to the level of speech and shave off serious time!

      Also I find that practice simply helps a lot. The more articles I've written over time - the faster I've gotten at doing them and surprisingly the quality has increased too. It's all about just getting into the swing of things! Keep your mind focused!

      I agree - 300-400 words barley rates as an article...but many people produce these for back linking only.

      I really hate it when I see a great headline and then 2 minutes later Im done with the few paragraphs and feel empty as there was insufficient content to either bond me with the author or grab my attention enough to want to click their link.

      Just try and do 1 per day and keep a log of all your ideas for article headings with some bullet points of the content you are thinking of writing for each heading.

      Im not going to post any of my article here but you can search ezine articles, or even google for Simon J Richardson or 'Article Marketing Mastermind' and get a sampling of some of mine if you like.

      I write and publish one per day, typically takes about 1 hour for 800-1000 words max.

      Dont worry about the speed - consistency and content are king...still!

    Some of my posts are longer than 500 words (not kidding) and nothing has ever taken me more than 10 minutes to post. It's all about typing speed and whether you need to think about the content or not. I usually post (and write articles) off the top of my head, so just typing and thinking (more typing, less thinking) required.



    But some of my writers (and me) use speech to text software to just dictate too.

    One of the quickest ways is to write list articles.

    For example..."The Top 5 Ways To..." or "10 Ways To Prevent..." etc

    Introduce your article with a small paragraph describing the problem or what the reader is going to learn from your article.

    Then write each list item and a few sentences describing that particular item.

    Then end it with a small summary paragraph.

    Before you know it you have a 400 word article ready to go.

      This method does not work in so many cases. What if you are not writing a list-style article?

    I can't do it myself without seriously reducing the quality of what I'm producing. Saying that, sometimes if I get in a good flow about a subject I often find I have written enough to split one article into two.

    If it is merely backlinks people are after like Al says it doesn't matter so much about quality, although I cannot see how the backlinks they achieve are not devalued by the shoddy workmanship.

    They write crap.

    I'm the same as you: a 400-500 word article takes an hour. I challenged myself to get article writing down to 15 minutes once (since someone - Jason Fladlien? - talks about "seven minute articles"), but I never managed to get it much below 20... and the quality of the articles was just horrific. I spent as much time fixing them the next day as I did writing them, and I was just so wiped out from the effort that I couldn't do anything the next day.

    So what would have taken me three days of relaxed, enjoyable work instead took three days of frenzied self-torture and exhausted semiconsciousness... and the articles weren't as good.

    It's not worth it. Never again.

      100% true.. if you need to write a good quality(in terms of info, grammar etc) it will take not less than 1 or 2 hours. Others who claim they can churn out 10 or 20 articles must be achieving that with the help of a Spinner.

      Usually they do, but I reverse engineered Jason´s product when it was released, and reviewed the actual product later. It is pretty good.

      I mean... it is rewriting content in the sense that there is no break through or real information being developed, but lets face it... how many self called writers actually create new information?

      And how many of those hiring actually want new information?

      what he does is to take 4 articles, scan for the triggers in the paragraphs and mismatch them in a different form. I saw him doing it live in a webinar and it is is great. I should have the report I did at that time somewhere.

      I tried the method and went down to 12 minutes. But for me it doesn´t worth it, as I am blue mindset to the core. I want to write and have fun, and be paid for it. To copy others stuff is not fun.

    If you know the subject already then you would be able to write about it much faster than if not.

    Or when you do research on a subject make a list of points like 10 - 20 things you "must do" when "flying a plane"...

    Make another list of things "you should never do"...

    Have another page that just answers the "Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How".

    Another with interesting tidbits like "The first plane to ever fly more than..."

    Quotes from great pilots. Quotes about flying.

    Where to find more information and history.

    Use those pages above as quick reference guides on that subject for your writing.

    Now you have enough bones to put the skeleton of an outline together which enables you to write articles faster.

    "5 Things You Never Knew About Flying" "3 Things You Must Never Do When Flying A Plane" "5 More Things To Avoid When You Are Going To Fly A Plane" "7 Steps To A Better Flight Plan"

    Those could have been put together very quickly if you already have the other research in place.

    I have to agree with Matt M...if you know the subject, you can usually write them much faster. Ask me about dogs and I can give you 3 very well-written, informative 500-word articles in an hour. Ask me about solar power...I got nothin', and it'll take me awhile to research before I'm comfortable putting anything down on paper.

      This is definitely true. I can expound about many things at length, just off the top of my head, because they matter to me and I've already done the research.

      But when people talk about how fast they can write an article, I automatically assume they're claiming a speed for articles on any arbitrary subject. As in, I could stand there with a stopwatch and say "greenhouse construction techniques... GO!" and they'll come in under the claimed time.

      And if you cut that time down much below half an hour, I firmly believe it's simply not possible for the result to be any good. I think you CAN write certain "canned" approaches to any subject in half an hour, and they're reasonable. But if you want to take a fresh approach to the subject... which I always recommend... it will take somewhat longer.

      To get a better listing you should include your keywords.

      An example would be "Dog Grooming"

        how many times does the KW need to be written in the whole article?

        correct me if im wrong but does article marketing work this way:

        1. the author submits the article to articlecity for example
        2. people who visit that site find the title of the article interesting
        3. the article is clicked
        4. the person who clicked that article is redirected to the author's site wherein the article is posted

        is this how article marketing works?

          My 2cent's worth.

          I must admit, article writing can be a drag, but then again, depends on what you want to write about.
          Most articles people write will never see the light of day on the 1st page of Google, so why struggle writing an article on dog grooming, if you don't know the 1st thing about this subject, (besides, raise your hands if you're fond of dog grooming) when you could write an article about a road trip where you passed by the most filthy <anchor text-->dog grooming<--anchor etc. parlor you've ever seen, and you definitely know a thing or two about, you guessed it, dog grooming, then lead your readers diplomatically to your download/squeeze page.

          I'm probably gonna get shot for this...

          Think people are interested in your articles? Think again, the most syndicated content online has nothing to do with article marketing or IM, why do you think youtube's so popular?
          People want a way out of their mundane lives, and if you can write something that will bring a smile, an aha moment or, gosh, that's me type of reaction...whilst at the same time leading to a sale or an optin, then chances are your article stands a higher chance of being syndicated or going viral.
          Most IM related articles rotate within the IM community, and not outside of that... seeing your article being read 200 times on ezinearticles over a span of 60 or so days is not great, it's time wasted!
          You want your article seen by over 1000 eyeballs at a time...

          Write the way you think and look at the World, and chances are you will have a loyal following.
          If stuck for inspiration, use video sharing sites, youtube et al, and see what the World is looking at, and try to spin it to your advantage.

          When you look at google trends, you never see article marketing or dog grooming as the flavor of the day, it's always something trivial or mundane as Lady Gaga in drag or something to that effect.

          when you look at article marketing as a chore, then you will take a day or two to write something from the heart.

          I used to spend countless of hours on this forum and others, just searching for this software or that product, when meanwhile time was running by and I could've written an article or two about anything, spiced with humor etc.

          I'm an outdoors enthusiast, and I also love reading readers digest, if only for the humor, last laugh etc... I also watch a lot of cartoons (have a 4 year old energizer bunny of a kid..) and laughter is indeed the best medicine.

          So, when I sit down to write an article, I think about relating to other folks and everyday life, and throw in a link or two about what I might be promoting.

          At the end of the day, it doesn't matter whether your article ranks or not, all you want is the traffic, and the link.. don't forget the link!

          So, if I'm writing about seo, I could end up saying I was on a lake with friends, it was sunset, and discussion drifted to seo and how we could better our businesses. The keyword associated with seo will be your anchor text, and people could click on that and be on your super dooper sales page...

          By the way, when I write about seo, my target market is the clueless owner of the mom and pop shop who knows he ought to have a website, but thinks websites are for 16 year olds... and that clueless bloke, IMHO, does not want to learn about seo, but about how he can broaden his customer base, but using geo targeted keywords, to beat his competition, or so he can spend more time doing the things he loves, than slaving at another day job, but one he cannot escape from, for he's now the boss.

          As for posting your articles, there is no right or wrong place, just how popular the article directory or social site is.

          Hope this helps, and keep writing...

          is this how article marketing works?
          Yes and no.

          The other thing that is important is that the article itself ranks highly for the chosen keyword or keyword phrase in the search engine pages, so its not just visitors to the article directory searching within the directory who will find the article. This is why keyword optimisation within articles is important.

          And then there are the backlinks from the article which, ideally, should use anchor text using the keyword. This means that search engines will identify the relevancy of the link better (or so roughly 70% of people believe) thus getting your site itself to rank better for searches for that keyword.

          Think of each article as an extra page of your site.

    The type of articles I write at a rate of 5-10 an hour are definitely of different quality than ones I spend an hour each on. These lower quality articles I use mainly for testing, simple backlinks, posting quickly to article sites, and for backlinking to the main article which takes me longer to write (which is usually on my own site).

    You can save time by posting the same article to different article sites if you really only want the backlink and not the traffic, or you can spin your articles, again the quality will drop here, but if you only want the backlinks then again this is ok perhaps too.

    At the end of the day though you should focus on your core skills and outsource the things that take you too long - I love writing and I do most of it myself still, but graphics and web design is another issue alltogether for me

    Hi,

    This is something I've struggled with myself. In general 500 words takes me between 30 minutes and 90 minutes depending on the topic (and that is if I don't procrastinate).

    I'm working on my Masters thesis at the moment and for my academic writing I aim for 100 - 200 words an hour so that makes my article writing speed look better.

    In terms of resources I like Jason Fladlien's write an article in 7 minutes product - I have never actually written an article in 7 minutes but his process helped me a lot. I also like WSO's by Zeus66 (John Schwartz) particularly Write Less, Bank More for keyword research on your articles and his Rewriting WSO (saved me a lot of time in rewriting my own articles to come up with new versions) and there is a free program called Dupe Free Pro which is great for checking keyword density and comparing two versions of an article. Sorry don't have the links for these but sure you can find them.

    I brought an article writing WSO today but haven't had a chance to read it yet - that will be my excuse to procrastinate from writing/studying tomorrow. :rolleyes:

    It does get easier, Laura, and what I finally decided to do was write personally about the things I knew about and outsource the rest. It just takes me too much time to research and write about something I'm unfamiliar with.

    There is just no way I would put my name on something I cranked out in 15 minutes! It would be garbage!

    If it is a topic that I wrote about frequently, then it is somewhat faster. But in order to get the quality that I put into my writing, it's going to take time for research, then time to write, then time to proof and perfect. I think the fastest I've ever done is 30 minutes for an article on a topic that I am very familiar with. The slowest was a project I finished a few days ago that was painfully slow and boring. 2 hours per article! I definitely lost money on that one!

    I find it much easier to write if I dont think too much about it being perfect English and just type as if I was talking about the subject in question. No pontification just taking a paragraph at a time and it seems to flow easier and faster. I usually achieve around 700 words in approximately 30 mins. And for the purposes of SEO I write the same information in the form of 5 articles.. It works for me!

    I haven't read all the above posts, so excuse me if this has already been covered.

    You get much faster at writing the more you do it. It used to take me at least an hour to write a good 500 word article. These days I type at around 65 words per minute and can have a great 500 word article out in 15 minutes. This of course would be for a topic I know about already. If I have to do research, it would double my writing time.

    After you write for a while, you start to pick up a pattern to your writing style and the format you write in. It just gets quicker and quicker.

    If you're writing on a subject you've thoroughly researched or you're already very familiar with then it's fairly simple to write quickly. Using Dragon Naturally Speaking, which I would highly recommend, also increases your output dramatically.

    I think most of the 5 articles per hour merchants are just churning out garbage for backlinks so it's always a case of quantity rather than anything approaching quality.
    They also fail to take into account the time spent on research, or in their case the time spent finding something on Ezine Articles to plagiarize.

      Nice call on the EZA plagiarism!

      If we all know that articles in 15 minutes are garbage why do people keep buying that garbage?...writing is writing, whether you dictate or type.

      How fast is irrelevant as long as you can live with the ROI for your time vs. results.

    Oh, It's basically simple. You see writing from the perspective of an academic. Most of us see it from the perspective of sales. It all comes down to one thing: How much money can we make?

    This doesn't necessarily lower the articles' quality. It is just that too much in depth research doesn't go into it as seen in the typical academic writings. Know one thing today: You don't need to write for the Pulitzer when doing article marketing.
    A few things contribute to speed and accuracy in writing:

    1. Knowledge of the topic

    2. Versatility

    3. Your own typing speed

    4. Your ability to research the topics really fast.

    Some people have this down to a system. What you know a lot about, you can easily write about. lemme know if you need some help in this area.

    Usually i pay someone else to write them for me as writing bores me, however it also works out cheaper to get a more general article writen, then re-writen and then spin those articles!

    A pack of 5 articles which will cost me about $15 to $20 like this will then turn into 100+ unqiue readable articles and it doesn't take that long to spin them either.

    Hai,

    rather than used some tools or software, write an article its depend on the topics, some topic its well known by ourself, some are not. Familiar topic will make we get the ideas more faster than unfamiliar one.
    when i write, i will start with point out the main ideas, then combined it to full article.

      In reality you have to think about the fact that... some people write for search engines some people write for people...

      We write for search engines 90% of the time if we are writing something ourselves...giving very little info other than clicking the link to find the actual answer. So those types of articles can be written extremely fast...because you are just fluffing until you hit the word count you need.

      But if I need good content...I outsource it cause there is no way I am going to sit there and write a good article...I would fall over in my chair from boredom...

      Some people love to write though... So I give them credit for being able to enjoy doing it.

      The problem with some people that love to write and also want to make money with affiliate sales, or even sales of their own products is that they give too much info... I have literally read articles that were so packed full of info I don't even know why I would bother buying the product they are sending me too lol.

      But if you are writing simply for fluff and keywords and getting people to click your resource box, or just for links...then you can write that fast...just sit there and think about how you would talk to a buddy of yours or something...get in that mindset and write those quickie...no info fulfilling articles...

    If I'm writing for myself, I will usually spend about 20 minutes doing the proper research about the topic. Then, I can usually pop out about 5 articles per hour. It's easy to do - you just have to let go of what you're doing and let your fingers spit out the knowledge.

    It's all about getting to know the subject very well before you start to write anything. Then just think about going as quickly as you can.

    However, if I'm writing for clients, I can usually only do about 2 maybe three per hour because I definitely want to pay more attention to what I'm doing.

    Then run the whole thing through a quality spell and grammar checker and there you go. I haven't gotten into voice recognition software yet, but it sounds appealing - but I think the way that I do it now is working well for me.

    I find that it takes me a solid half hour just to EDIT an article that someone else has written for me.

    I propose that it all comes down how stringent your editorial policy and style guidelines are (hint, few people have ANY of EITHER).

    In this, the quantity is king era of internet marketing, quality is sadly being cut down faster than brasilian rain forest.

    I'm sure if my quality standards were lowered to the point where any random thoughts off the top of my head were good enough, then I would get a lot more quantity.

    Typing isn't a problem for me, since I've made my living on production typing for years. Writing is also something that comes naturally to me.

    However, I do write the articles much faster when I'm writing on a topic where I already have a lot of experience or knowledge.

    I also find organization helps speed things up. If I am going to write on (for example) dog grooming, I would pick the keywords I'm going to target in the articles and read up on the topic (online and off) before starting.

    I don't know where the thread is - here somewhere - but someone said they sit down and write on a topic, maybe 5000 words, then break it up into 10 articles. I can see where that could be a much faster way of knocking out a bunch of articles on a topic.

    I also have typing productivity tools to speed things up. If the keyword is "dog grooming" and I've set my productivity tool, I can type in dg(space) and get dog grooming. (I believe a cheaper version of what I use is available here - http://shortkeys.com.)

      Hi Warriors,

      I have taken the Jason Fladlien course and it does increase the speed of writing an article by better organization.

      First, most of my articles submitted to Ezinearticles are 400 to 500 words. Anything over 500 words and a large percentage of people don't read.

      Second, don't get too fancy with $2 words when a 10 cent word will explain the subject just as well. In the USA, most people only read at a 7th grade level and are turned off by the big words.

      Third, when submitting to Ezinearticles, you are looking for traffic to your website. You want to give the What and Why and let the reader go to your site to learn the How.

      I write an article in 20 to 25 minutes including research. But, I also read at about 750 words a minute.

      I always run all articles through >>
      The Plagiarism Checker
      especially if I am rewriting a PLR article which I can completely rewrite in 10 to 15 minutes.

      I type about 60 words a minute but I am too old to get into much of a hurry.

    I just a little test then. I churned out 300 words in 10 minutes. I gotta agree with everyone, quality is definitely more important than quantity. By the time I've edited that so it's usable, I'll wish I'd just spent a bit longer and a did a good job.

    500 words an hour for a quality article is absolutely fine.

      I agree that we are talking about two different result levels - the writer who takes an hour to write an article will have a quality piece of work that others will want to read.

      Those who churn out five articles in a half hour aren't worth reading by anyone. There is so many junk articles around the web, all in the name of a backllink or two, that those who write quality articles may take longer and write fewer, but they eventually rise to the top.

      When I try to churn out several articles in a short time I end up taking longer to proof than if I had taken the time to do them right in the first place.

      Quality does win over quantity - even in the search engines!

        How do people write articles so fast?
        The thread's a year old but the answer (unsurprisingly) still holds true: they don't.

        They write what they classify as "articles". They're not really "articles" - they're typically "chunks of text with some keywords included", to which a backlink can be attached.

          Sorry Alexa, this just isn't true.

          I remember having coffee with the political editor of a national newspaper in the UK. There was a group of us and we were discussing something that was currently in the news. Him being a journo we egged him on to write something for the paper. He wrote and submitted an article in 15mins.

          A friend of mine works for a news agency in Moscow. He manages 2-3 articles an hour a lot of which end up on the BBC.co.uk and other authority websites

          In both cases these are original articles in that nothing before them used similar ideas. In article marketing, once you have devised an original and novel way of promoting whatever it is you're selling, each article you write on the subject is easier to write than the previous one until you reach a plateau (where you physically can not write them any faster).

          A final example: When at the very last minute, a speaker had to pull out of a conference I was organising a few years back, a colleague of mine had under an hour to write a paper on what was a very complicated subject. However, since he was extremely experienced with over 25yrs accumulated knowledge he put together a few thousand words and took the place of the absent speaker. (The paper was later published elsewhere in a scholarly journal).

          Experienced and knowledgeable writers can (and often do) write very quickly. In fact, it is only in discussions on article marketing that I've ever heard it suggested otherwise.

            Agreed.

            The more relevant question, to my mind, is:

            "WHY do people write articles so fast?"

            I mean, is there a prize or something for churning 'em out faster?

            What matters more is what you do AFTER writing your article - to maximize the value you get from it. And it's where the leverage really lies.

              LOL

              Just yesterday, you admitted to creating a fantastic article of about 800 words in 25 minutes.

              Of course, I was going to link to it, but you came to your senses and pulled it down, because it was an excellent foundation for a paid report.

              Wise choice too. That was jam-packed with awesome information.

              The point is that people like Dr. Mani can write an article in 25 minutes or less, without sacrificing quality.

              The answer to the question is really simple and straight forward.

              If you know what you are going to write about, exactly what you want to say and how you are going to say it, 25-minutes or 15-minutes to write an article is not that hard, and you don't have to sacrifice quality to get the article written so quickly.

              If you are unsure about what you are going to talk about and what you are going to say, then the process will naturally take longer to complete.

              TimG proved the point yesterday as well, when he did an analysis of one of my posts and one of his.

              In the post of mine that he referenced as an "enjoyable read", I had cranked out 767 words in under 15 minutes, without any hesitation at all.

              In his response to me, he created a valid response that contributed real value to the thread in 316 words and with under 5 minutes invested in the process.

              Anyone in this forum who has something to say and can say it vociferously with very little time invested in the process should know that I am absolutely right about this...

              When you know what you are going to say, the words come easily to you, and the work is completed quickly.

              To this point, this post is 292 words and took about 15 minutes to complete. And to be honest, the only reason it took me that long is I took the time to find the links to three different posts and two Warrior profiles to document my point of view.

            I completely understand what you're saying, Søren, but have a good look through any major article directory and tell me that 90% - 95% of it isn't crap. The people filling these things up and getting them rightly slapped by Google, at last, are not professional writers and journalists, nor are they the "experienced and knowledgeable writers" to whom you refer in your post. We're a very tiny minority!

            There's a reason for that, Søren: there's virtually no quality control, and there's a whole different conception of what an article is, for what people imagine to be "SEO purposes". You know it and I know it.

              Good writers aren't necessarily in a tiny minority, as there are many thousands/millions worldwide. The issue is that good writers need to be paid more for their articles because they are usually living in a differently economical environment than those who charge rock bottom prices.

              The 'writing fast' thing I don't think is anything to go by in regards of judging your own performance and especially if you don't know all the details.

                The thing about speed is that if I can write faster I can get more done. Like everyone on this earth I only have a finite amount of time. The longer it takes me to get a piece of writing finished the longer I have to wait before I can start the next project.

            A final example: When at the very last minute, a speaker had to pull out of a conference I was organising a few years back, a colleague of mine had under an hour to write a paper on what was a very complicated subject. However, since he was extremely experienced with over 25yrs accumulated knowledge he put together a few thousand words and took the place of the absent speaker. (The paper was later published elsewhere in a scholarly journal).
            No, he wrote the words in 15 minutes, the article was created when he did his research.

            Yes, he puts 2-3 articles into the computer in an hour, but how long does he interview, research, and study before starting?

            Actually that article took him 25 years plus one hour to write. Without the previous 25 years it would not have been possible.

            Your premise is great, but as a writer I know I cannot "write" an article in 15 minutes. I can put one on paper in 15 minutes once I have spent the time researching, reviewing, and preparing. Writing is the easy part. Everything which comes before it is the hard part.

              Exactly so.

              The time taken for an article isn't necessarily writing time.

              It's even slightly related to why even professional copywriters with many years' experience can take 50 hours or so to write a sales page. The writing and editing time may be a very small proportion of that.

              From his example, it didn't sound like he spent any time researching. He was asked and produced the article in 15 minutes.

              Anytime a writer has to use anything outside VALUE to justify their prices, you know they are in trouble. I've heard it all with writers. They try and justify prices by telling me how much they used to make writing for a magazine. They justify them by telling me about the overhead (their house? LOL). And now I've heard a new one, that the articles they wrote would not be possible without the 25 years of training. Geez.

              I just think it's funny cause you don't see that with many other professionals.

                So, if he had not had the conversations, if he not already been a journalist in the area, and had never spent any time learning about the subject he could have still written a good article on it in 15 minutes which contained the truth?

                In the example of 25 years, you must have skimmed what he said. He made it perfectly clear the expert wrote the article BASED UPON HIS KNOWLEDGE from 25 years in the field. Without those 25 years of knowledge he would have needed to do research which guarantees he could not have produced the paper in one hour. I did not mention training...I alluded to accumulated knowledge.

                And you are absolutely right. I have never heard a Doctor claim his rates are based upon his years in college, medical school, and internship. I have never heard a lawyer explain his rates are high due to college, law school, and continuing education. CPA's certainly would never say that. Nor would a tenured professor....And definitely, never ever would a union worker in a manufacturing plant EVER, EVER claim his years of experience should be worth anything more than the new guy who just hired in.

                I do appreciate your first statement though. I prefer my article prices be set by value. Whether I am writing for a client or for promoting my own offers. In the end value is all that counts, and is what is provided when you have accumulated knowledge, or do the necessary research to write an article.

                Which leads us back to....15 minute articles are not usually high quality, UNLESS there is prior research or accumulated knowledge standing behind those 15 minutes.

                  We're talking about writers though right? Because the original question was How can someone write an article in 15 minutes? And the answer is, when they know the topic. It can't be automatically assumed that the articles are crap, as others have said.

                  And I said that doctors, cpa, attorney's never mention their background to JUSTIFY their price. It is what it is so take it or leave it.

                  Writers typically don't bring the same value so they feel the need to justify their price by talking about how much their college education costs. Ha.

                    Yes - and it's a good and fair answer, if they're a good writer who knows the topic inside out. And a good point made by several above.

                    Unfortunately, however, the reality (as anyone can confirm very quickly by looking through the contents of an article directory) is that the other 99% of the time it really isn't that at all: it's someone whose idea of an "article" is just a chunk of text including a few keywords, to which a backlink can be attached.

                    Well, that's not a fair comparison - because it is GENERALLY known that medical or law school involves a rigorous and structured training process through which anyone who qualifies must pass.

                    Not so for freelance writing - hence the need to justify price by pointing to training, experience, results etc.

                    How else would a writer 'justify' the price they charge?

                      I have a couple good friends that own small service businesses. One is a painter an the other is a photographer. When i first used them, their rates were low. Matter of fact, the photographer gave me a free session just so they could build up their portfolio. The next time I used them, they cut me a good deal still, but their rates had more than doubled. In the case of the photographer, she went from $40 sessions to $175 sessions.

                      That, to me, is a justification of rates. if you're filling your calendar with $175 sessions, then you have no reason to do one for $100.

                      But if the photographer told me "Well, you know I had to go to college and I have student loans. Plus, I had to buy these props and this expensive camera. Plus I have a car that I use to get over here".

                      Seriously? Is that a justification for high rates? I don't think so.

                      It would make far more sense if they said "Because if I give you these articles for $10, I'd be bumping a job where I make $50".

                      But, I doubt many writers are in that position.

                Awesome...

                I like Barry and Alexa, but this time I am with Dave...

                Sure the 25 years experience helps. In my case, it is just over a decade experience. I think Alexa said yesterday that she has been doing this a couple years...

                I've never heard a writer use those justifications for a higher writing fee, but I don't doubt that many people do it.

                And that is counter to what prospective customers need to hear. Prospective customers need to know WIIIFM (What Is In It For Me), instead of why the writer thinks he or she should be more costly than other writers.

                The whole challenge of selling ghost writing services is made easier when you talk to prospects about what is in it for them, rather than what is in it for you.

                When I did ghost writing, I generally offered a 15% discount to those clients who were willing to buy in volume, as opposed to one article at a time.

                Every now and again, some wise guy would try to buy my services by changing the ten (10) in the discount order form to one or two.

                Imagine their surprise when I promptly hit the refund button.

                Imagine their further surprise when they would come back and try to pay my stated prices for single articles and I would promptly hit the refund button, explaining to them that if they want me to work for them, they will pay me a premium because they tried to cheat me on their initial order.

                I accepted their work on my terms, not theirs, because I knew the value of the work I provided to them.

                80% of the people that tried to force me to take discount pricing on less than volume ordering ended up paying me 20% on top of my stated prices, because they came to understand that I believed in the value I was giving them, and my confidence at turning down their money gave them confidence in what they were going to get from me.

                The last guy who did that exercise with me really stands out in my mind. He stands out because I asked him if he had something in mind that he wanted me to write. He sent me an articles and said, "This guy knows what he is talking about, and I want you to mimic his style."

                That particular job really stands out in my mind, because the sample article he sent me was one that I had written under a pen name.

                He ended up paying me $180 an article, and he sold $4800 of services on the first article. After that I could do no wrong.


                p.s. When I tell stories like this, I get a bunch of PM's asking me to ghost write for people. So I must point out that I no longer do ghost writing for clients.

    Get Inspired,

    I know how you feel. It used to always take me between one to two hours to write an article. When I got it down to 45 minutes, I thought I was doing great.

    I bought two WSO's that really helped get my time down. One was about how to turn one article into 16 by Brad Carroll, the other was "How to Write an Article in 7 Minutes" by Jason Fladien which has been mentioned previously.

    After I read Jason's WSO, I sat down and wrote a 600 word article in 20 minutes. So far I've written a 500 word article in 12, I haven't gotten down to 7 minutes yet.

    The one thing I realized after reading Jason's article is that I had a tendency to cover too much in the article. It really helped me focus, and as a result, I was able to write much faster. I think the quality of my articles is the same, maybe even better. It's easier for me to get into the flow of the article now.

    Brad's WSO helped me look at the articles differently, and it's much easier for me to write a set of article on the same keywords.

    Obviously, if there is a lot of research that needs to be done it will take longer. But if you're writing five articles on how to remove dog urine, you're not researching new information for every article.

      If I have to think and research a great deal about an article, then it takes me twice as long, but practice certainly does decrease the time it takes to write a quality article.
      I haven't tried the "voice to text" software, but sounds interesting and I might look into it.
      Also, I try not to edit myself as I write. That takes up SO much time. I edit after I write the article to see if it flows well and for grammatical and spelling mistakes.

      Writing fast and with quality are very subjective.
      writing fast only makes me think of "how fast is fast"
      and quality makes me think of "How good is good enough"

      If your writing is to be like steven king your in the wrong forum.
      If your writing is for a purpose, a marketing purpose, then here are some tips.

      First off writing about things you know about, will be fastest.
      research is not writing.

      What do you want your article to do?
      Focus on what you want- do you want to be done in 8 minutes? Do you want to write an article that drives to a sales page? Do you want to drive traffic to an affiliate offer? Figure out what you want and focus on that singularly.

      Articles are like movies. A rambo movie doesn't look like "the notebooK." Always a purpose in mind, only.

      If your a marketer and are writing articles there should always be a next step. "Always a go here. Do this. Click the buy button" You are never done always a next step.

      With that being said and a marketing mindset. Here is how I do it.

      1. Goto: 100 greatest headlines and pick one. And make it yours.
      2. 4 areas or paragraphs for sub subjects of your subject. You can bullet point it out.
      3. Plus an Intro and conclusion paragraph
      4. sprinkle a call to action throughout the article
      5. spell check, read once. Done
      Everything starts out as crap the first 1000 times you do it.

      There is a book that slips my mind but to be a Mozart at your choosen subject it takes 10000 hours of DOING it. so what ever your goals are, keep that in mind.

      Do you want to be a marketeer or an article writer, if you want to be a marketeer outsource the "quick, backlink, superficial" articles and focus on making people take action.

      The main secret of writing faster articles is to write as if you are talking to a friend in front of you.( I use this method also when i write sales letters)

      If you are chatting with your friend or trying to explain some facts for him or her, do you take one hour to say the vital points.

      Drop the technicalities, except if it is very essential and write freely in a chatty mode.

      Except if you are writing how to boost the speed of military jets, are you?

      Make the 'little' know-how articles conversational and you will be surprised at how fast your writings will become.

      Try it!

        Yes, that's a really good tactic and applies to sales letters as well.

        You've got to try and tend to write as if you are writing to a single person. Good stuff.

      Have you ever actually tried using a human controlled spinner?

      if yes, then you must not be a very good writer as the software does what you tell it to do.

      I'm curious because you state your opinion that spinners are crap as fact.

  • The strategy that best works for me is to either create a list of bullet points and flesh out each bullet point with a minimum of 3 details, with an intro & summary paragraph. This usually works for subjects that I am well-versed in.

    On the other hand, I do agree that "speaking" an article is the absolute fastest way to write, IMO. You talk for a few moments or an hour and POOF!- you have an articles series, free report AND book written (depending on the amount of detail you explore in your subject). I do have the Naturally Speaking software, but I also have used a free teleconference line (w/ free recording) to create articles/reports/books, as well.

    Hope that helps!

    I use dragon naturally speaking, not because my typing is slow but my spelling is horrible. After you have spent lots of time with the program its accuracy goes way up and the production speed increases.

    The key to cranking out articles for me has always been the compiling of information. My first 10 articles are usually very long 1000+ words. Because I keep those articles very well themed for example, one article may just be on "Tips to do X" and the next one is "The cause of X." This allows me to go back and reconstruct new articles.

    If my articles are for article marketing then I always decided on how I am going to "get the click," with the end of the article, this is what I call my overall "transition concept". I plan and write this first, usually 100-150 words. After it is done, then I just make 10 - 50 variations. I don't use a spinner or anything like that, that way each rewrite is unique but focused on the overall concept and goal of getting the CTR as high as possible.

    Keeping good track of all this for each niche is the key. I have some niches that can I can go to right now and crank out 10-18 very good articles in an hour just based on the information that I have compiled in the past. The best part is I have a very good idea of the CTR based on the past performance of the "transition concept" I use to end the article.
    The other benefit of keeping all of the "transition concepts" separate is that when I receive outsourced material all I have to do is plug one of my pre-determined concepts. This allows me to take a sub-par article and get some decent miles out of it without having to rewrite the article. It's a money saver too, if I want a 500 word article all I have to do is pay for a 350-400 word article then I plug in the rest and publish.

    I'm just going to reiterate what a lot of people have been saying here. It really depends on the speed you time and the topic you write about. In my years writing for daily newspapers I had to come up with about 800-1200 words a day. And even when I had all my notes and I was familiar with the topic the fastest I could write a good article was probably 30 minutes.

    Now when I write articles for my blog, my client's blog or for article marketing it takes between 30-45 minutes. The fastest I've written something is 15 minutes but that was my blog and writing on a subject I was extremely familiar with. That was out of the norm though.

    All I can say is that maybe these people who can write faster are gifted. Or maybe we just really care about our work and take a lot longer with it. All I know is if I'm satisfied with the work when it's done then it took as long as it needed to take.

        After watching the video it took about 15 mins to write my first article, which was about 350 words. The quality was awful, but within another 15mins I had cleaned it up and had 850 words. By the time I had expanded and posted it, it had taken about 2hrs and was about 1900 words long. I think the quality was ok (HubPages). I suppose if it was for an article directory, I would easily have had 4 x 500 word articles in roughly the same time, at least. Not quite a gold-medal achievement, but I can live with that, and hopefully will improve with practise.

        Many thanks to M Thompson for this method!

    What are the tips or advice the fast, quality writers give?
    First of all "quality" is only decided by whoever is reading the article. It's also important to note that an article you make for marketing does not need to be an academic article you are about to submit to health journals or trade journals.

    Today I wrote 10 keyword researched articles in under 2 hours. That's not to brag, but just to show how it does not and shouldn't take time to write articles. All you want is them to check out a quick tip and then click your link.

    That's the ultimate goal, and most people get hung up on making a quality article.

    I make my articles short and offer a simple tip or two. This way I get them hungry and the only way they'll get "fed" is to click my link and learn more stuff.

    Even my resource boxes are "unprofessional" by conventional standards. I use blatant phrases to get people to click my links such as:

    "Nobody wants to see a Pepperoni Face - Click Here to......"

    "She's getting tired of you leaving her unsatisfied - Click here...."

    Those are basic examples, but you get the idea. I make some even more crazy statements, but those are my gems I'm not gonna share.

    I'm getting off topic now, but once you wrap your mind around the fact that your articles don't need to be academia style you'll be able to pop them out so much faster.

    Another thing I do sometimes is look at a "5 tips to..." article and I'll make a separate article for each tip.

    This is not even close to being complete, but hope this helps you out a bit.

    There are two things here - the speed of writing one article, and the number of articles you can write in any given time.

    Writing an article quickly can still result in a quality article, full of information about its topic and entertaining for its targeted audience, provided it has been researched properly, but writing, say, 10 articles in an afternoon, is different.

    Will the tenth article you've written be as informative and useful as the first?

    Fatigue can set in after a while, and that applies to everyone. If that happens, it shows when the reader reads the article.

    I believe it's important to put quality before quantity. Otherwise the internet will end up as a huge repository of second and third rate information regurgitated to death.

    As both a writer and a songwriter, I find it helps to have a reference paragraph in point form above what I'm going to expound on and write about. I use it as a prompt for the rest of my thoughts and descriptions.

    This brief outline gets the creative juices flowing, and once I get inspired it takes me 20 to 30 minutes to write 400-500 word articles.

    This method definitely puts me at least 2 complete articles an hour that are unique.

      I find this strategy to be conducive to fast (but not necessarily 10 minute articles!) article writing as well, particularly if you're targeting something in the 400-500 word range.

      While you can certainly write articles without utilizing a "bullet point" type outline, I find that writing this out prior to composing the actual article yields a very tangible benefit in speed. It also helps keep you on point, and as a result your article is focused and very coherent, and those are crucial qualities to have in short articles that are in the 400-500 word range.

    A decent article spinner using PLR articles, with a quick adjustment of errors means you should get out a 300-500 article in about 10 minutes. Aparentl "best spinner" is a good tool, although I can't vouch for this personally

    There are several ways that you can write articles faster. First you want to be very knowledgeable with the topic. If you are you use dragon software and it will type 120 words.

    You have at least two to 3 main points with transition sentences. At the beginning you tell the person what you will be discussing. You then run through the article in 5, 6 minutes and then go back and edit which should take a couple minutes.

    Or you can make lists. Like 3 fat burning foods that have been proven to help melt pounds off of problem areas. Play on emotions and do not go super detailed. The shorter the article the better because it will put more emphasis on your sig, which is what you want them to click on.

    Next method might sound a little shady but its not. You go to google and put in the keyword that you are targeting and find content. Rewrite the content in your own words. That will be super easy. Using the dragon talk and type with this method will help you plow thru articles.

      Everyone you've heard this from will have a different explanation as to how they write so many in an hour. For some it will mean owning up to plagiarism and for the others, who just have a knack of writing fast, their reason will be that the topic was easy to write on and that they could churn out articles like there's no tomorrow.

      Personally, most of my articles take less than 15 minutes to write a 450 word article, though these 15 minutes only cover my end of the bargain, which is writing to submit to an editor. It is seldom that any of these articles are returned to be re-written.

      In your case, I guess it's just the way you work, and that is to take plenty of time to ensure your article is of top quality. One thing you will find is if you write on topics that words fly off the top of your head for, then you will find it much easier to write with less time used.

    I write articles in groups - so I might write 5 articles on one topic all in one batch. That way I can pull up several research pages at a time but still have all I need for 5 unique articles. It can be done, especially if you know your niche well. 10 minutes is a bit fast, even for me. I average 15-20 minutes on 400-500 word articles.

    I can get 500 to 600 word articles in an hour and even more if I have all my research together. It does depend on if I have written on the subject before, or know it well, then I can write it faster.

    Having heard of the Dragon software, I would like to give it a try one day, but not yet. I still like old school notes and writing from an outline. I like quality and want my name associated with quality, so I doubt I'll ever be fully able to do many articles in an hour.

        There is a plateau. You want to reach it as soon as possible.
        Hadn't thought of it that way, but I think I agree with that comment.

        I don't worry about speed. I've written so much for so long that I'm just focused on getting the work done and doing it well. I have topics I write about where I have accumulated a lot of knowledge. I can often write 800 words in 15 minutes and end up with a good article. One reason is a fast typing speed. Another is not doing drafts - I just organize the article in my head and start writing.

        But - when I'm working on a new topic I'm not familiar with it can take me 2 hrs or more to write a good article. As I master the niche, the speed increases as my knowledge base increases.

        It's not the speed but the total hours of writing that limits me. I can only write well for a certain number of hours a day and I usually split that into 2-3 time sections throughout the day. I admire people who can put in 8 hrs a day writing but 4-5 hours is usually my limit if I'm writing daily.

        If you are trying to churn out fast articles, writing can be a chore. If you are crafting quality content with attention to detail and flow, it takes as long as it takes but doesn't feel like hard work.

      I work with an outline in most cases.

      I find that if I write about something I know about, I can just outline the paragraphs and come up with enough content to fill.

      If I have to do extensive research on a topic first I will typically come up with topic ideas from the content as I read it. These topics can be used for about anything from the overall article concept, to a sub point in a paragraph.

      I can write 400-600 words in a topic I know little about in about 30 minutes. If I know the content well I can run them in about half the time.

      The part of the math that you are going to miss is the fact that I could spend hours researching and prepping that article. The high point is that I will use the same research time to prepare multiple articles which limits the overall time for the rest of the articles.

      Then you have to look at things from the back end. I will spend another 10-15 minutes on the editing side of the bargain on a smaller article. This will involve a read over as well as punching it through another round of spelling and grammar checkers to play things safe. This will help make sure I was on target with the content.

      This is how I write PLR. The writing process is arguably the shortest part of the deal. The rest of the work involved is what slows things down.

    I always take over an hour to write an article that consists of roughly 400 or 500 words, but I see others who claim that they can actually write 5 articles in only ONE hour. How the heck are people writing that fast???

    I do get that I write slower because I come from an academic background, but still, writing an article in only 10 or 15 minutes is still quite an accomplishment.

    So what suggestions would you fast writers out there give to help me speed things up?

    (as a side note, I can't actually speak for the QUALITY of the articles that people are claiming to write so fast, but they do usually say that they write decent articles).

    *************

    That took maybe about 4 or 5 minutes for me to re-write, and I'm sure there are plenty others who could re-write faster than that. You just get the idea of what the article is saying paragraph by paragraph (or even sentence by sentence), then say the same thing in a different way.

    I wouldn't really call these articles "original" since you're just re-writing something else, but you can certainly get a lot of unique articles with this method very quickly with practice.

    I can sometimes write an article (500 words or so) in 15 or 20 minutes. Often those are among my best pieces because they are inspired. That is when I have an idea and the words just flow.

    Of course, that doesn't mean I can consistently write four articles in an hour. I am a fairly fast writer, but I can't produce quality articles that are up to my standards in that kind of time frame.

    It is possible to write a quality article in 15 or 20 minutes, but for me it is not possible to do that all day, every day. However, when I am "in the zone" I can turn out several articles, one after another, in what seems like no time at all.

    I do what a former colleague rather inelegantly called "puking on paper." That means just tearing through the first draft as fast as you can, putting every thought on the page. Then you go back and edit that draft to smooth it out and make it better. I find the editing process is easier when I let my writing mellow for a day or so before going back to it.

      I'm the same way. When I'm doing my research, I bullet point my notes, bookmark stuff, etc. Really the process is more to get it into my head than anything else. If I'm interviewing, I go back through the recording, get a feel for the conversation and pull quotes when necessary. Some pieces take me 30 minutes to write a solid 500 words, sometimes the process takes a couple weeks.

      I did an article series on advanced SEO techniques that was a 3 parter, interviewing three pros in the field (Rand Fishkin, Derek Vaughan, Bruce Clay). Those took some time to actually write because I went over them a number of times. Generally though, my best stuff comes out when I'm just in the flow of things - inspired.

    I use dragon naturally speaking which is a voice processing system that allows you to change your speech to actual text. I can write a 500 word article in 5 minutes and easily make corrections all with telling my computer what to do.

    You can type as fast as you can talk and it's about the other software out there other than the one you probably don't even know you already have. This can be found under your control panel after clicking on the start button. Once you have made it this far simply click on ease of access and look for the speech tutorial so you can quickly learn how to function it properly.

    Great questions produce great threads! And what a terrific way to start the weekend!

    You'll have to crunch the numbers for your unique situation, but the examples given work out to a flawless 60 WPM - which, I think, is decidedly on the high side for most of us. That would give you a 420 word article in 7 minutes, or a 600 word article in 10 minutes.

    Theoretically; which is the rough equivalent and every bit as bogus as saying that NFL players make millions working less than 40 hours a year. Not everyone has that kind of education, training, and experience; not everyone has the proper mindset, skills, habits, and discipline. You've got to know your strengths and leverage them; and know your weaknesses and work around them.

    The reference to academia set off a barrage of claxons at my terminal that I want to address immediately. First, PLR and outsourcing is NOT plagiarism: all parties know exactly what is going on here, and no one is being cheated, nothing is being stolen.
    Second, you don't need to knock yourself out with citating sources or the usual nitpicking over style - although that can be an advantage in some niches and with some target audiences.

    Personally, I have trouble thinking in terms of a single article - even if I know the topic and the intended audience intimately. I have to think in terms of a series of articles. That comes in very handy if I'm going to have to spend a few hours or a few days doing further research. And inevitably it all leads to series of brainstorming sessions about new topics, new niches, new strategies.

    Just to give you one example: although I use the Dragon software and think it's great, you're going to have to spend more time with it (than with manually keyboarded) looking for homonyms. And you need to know in advance to buy the Premium edition at US$129.99 that allows you to use a digital recorder for input - which doesn't with the Home edition at US$58.74.

    It's well worth it, IMO. Your actual mileage may vary. And if you're going to invest in "high tech" you might want to start thinking about Flip or something similar for video.

    Again, because of the reference to academia, I can recommend three very highly regarded, inexpensive paperbacks as must reads:

    Robert Boice. Professors as Writers.

    Kathleen A. Kendall-Tackett. How to Write for a General Audience: A Guide for Academics Who Want to Share Their Knowledge with the World and Have Fun Doing It.

    Paul J. Silvia. How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing.

    and don't be put off by the academic slant - all three would benefit every writer who can get beyond the title.

    And, of course, a good High School Dictionary (not collegiate, unless that is your specific audience); along with a good thesaurus. Use them! Words are now your stock in trade!

    As for developing your craft, I've gotten the biggest bang for the buck out of a casual tip eons ago from a classmate in my freshman year to keep a journal. Somehow I fused that with a another tip about freewriting, and I've been starting every day since with an untimed session while my coffee is brewing. About twice a month I read through my journal and extract ideas to Post-It notes. By then my subconscious mind has been processing the problem, so it's pretty easy to write an workable outline or
    sequence.

    We're all wired differently, so you'll have to experiment a bit to find the best (most productive) time for you to write and adjust your schedule accordingly.

    Everyone is different, but the tools used can help.
    Using speech to text can make things go much faster since a person can talk at 160 words per minute instead of typing 50.

    Also it depends on the topic. For example a person who is an expert on jellyfish wouldn't have to do very much research vs. someone who doesn't know as much.

    It also helps to have an outline and be used to using it.
    Such as knowing what type of information you want to give in each article. That way you won't spend ton of time going over the same things over and over again.

    But ultimately I find that being an expert in one or a few areas really help. Then try to get clients who want articles on those subjects, or have your websites on those subjects.

    And it also takes a lot of time to get into the flow of things.

    Once you learn, then you can just duplicate.
    Have the time and effort. No distractions and you should clear down a couple hours.

    If you really have no time or want to gain more time for other things, outsourcing or finding reliable fiverr's can be a good idea.

    Otherwise, good luck!

    If you know your subject matter well, you can definitely write an article quickly! And as you write more, you will be to write faster too. But speed should not be your main concern, as I think quality and uniqueness of the article is more important.

    I write about 4-5/hour and find that doing 20 minutes of good solid research helps me get it done faster than trying to research before every article. I also tend to just write and edit after I'm done so that I don't filter anything and get in the way of myself.

    I don't think there's a tip other than practice more. Some topics come easy, and some suck.

    Here are few tips that you may find useful while trying to write an article real fast:

    1) Do your research beforehand. A lot of people don't do proper research and this results in slowing down their writing. Make notes, bullet points that you can refer to later while actually writing your articles.

    2) Don't think / read the words in your mind while writing the articles. I remember when I started article writing I used to think a lot and that slowed down my writing process. If you have done your research properly, you would just need to refer to your notes and bullet points.

    3) Don't review/correct the mistakes while writing. Have a separate review process after the writing is complete to correct grammar/spelling mistakes.

    4) Enjoy the writing process. If you think of writing articles as a laborious task that you need to complete somehow, I guarantee your mind will wander from time to time and slow down the writing process.

    Apart from this you can also use a speech to text software as some have already mentioned. I think Dragon Naturally Speaking is the best speech to text software around so check it out.

    Finally this is one fun site that really helped boost my writing speed. If you have some free time, do check it out

      I've found practice helps tremendously. I had four years of liberal arts training for writing; maybe that degree will be finally worth something. :rolleyes:

      If I know what I want to say, I can knock 'em out pretty quickly. After a while, I just get used to writing 400-600 words. The hardest part is just doing the research and thinking about what I want to write.

I just hate doing it because it is so boring. I can speed it up 5minutes by using software like Dragon Naturally Speaking but ultimately, I tend to like to outsource writing and pay my writers well.

      There's no denying that article writing can be tedious and monotonous, especially when you're emphasizing quantity over content/quality. While there is some potential for becoming successful utilizing outsourced writers, you'll have to evaluate their writing/research skills very carefully to see if they're a proper fit for what you're doing, and as you've mentioned above pay them well (especially if you plan on having them around for a long time).

      With outsourced writers, it's pretty important to track their results to determine whether you're actually getting a positive ROI based on what you're paying them per article. If your ROI isn't positive, then there's really no point in having them continue working for you.

    Writing quickly is not a difficult thing to master. First of all it can come down to generally being able to type fast and having a good keyboard for the job (flat laptop keyboards can be troublesome).

    Generally as a product creator I try to write about 5 pages an hour. Each of my pages is about 300-400 words long so I am doing about 1400 words per hour.

    A lot of the problem is not being able to get into the flow of things. Now off course this is easier when writing a whole product then stopping to make a new article every 15 minutes, but when you have the general pattern and flow of things it becomes much more easy.

    Having a specific layout will help you type faster. I would assume that this is more prevalant in article marketing because after writing 20 articles or so you would have a good flow for "introduce problem, build on this, give example, solve problem, fix hang ups, conclude" etc. allowing you to just go over this structure again and again to quickly pop out articles!

    Hopefully this has helped some of you. (Oh and off course you could just use a program that turns speach to text, after all who cannot speak about three times faster then they can type?).

    Kind Regards,

      I tend to be able to write articles quickly. That said, I have a background in public health and science and I mostly stick to that niche. It helps to have some background knowledge on a subject. When I go outside that niche, it can double the time it takes me to write.

      Also, I definitely think you get faster with time. Just like any skill, the more your practice the better you get. It was especially hard for me to let go of the academic writing style I needed for school and move to a more consumer style. But that was another thing that came with time.

    I do like 5 articles an hour. I do it by typing fast since I have been typing for so long. And I don't even use the home row. Also I think what you really need to do is know a lot about your topic so the words just flow. I really immerse myself in the niche I am in by learning from other well made sites.

    I think so many people just have so many different kinds of writing styles. For example, I just write. Whatever comes to mind I write, and I keep writing. I don't stop to really "think" as much - but just write what comes to and I don't stop. Of course this can only be done in markets I know, so I stick to markets that I know well.

    I would say that it all comes down to personal preference. I know for a fact, that no matter how knowledgeable I am on a subject, there is no way that I could write a 400-500 word article in under 20 minutes. My process, like yours, takes about an hour.

    Some people, I think, are willing to sacrifice a little quality in order to quickly establish themselves. On the other hand, I think producing excellent content is probably the best way to gain long-term authority in a niche.

    Then again, I'm a complete newbie and am just speculating on what I think is the logical explanation to your question.
