How to write efficiency and crank stuff out,
This review is from: Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content (Paperback)
In a typical year, I'll write one full-length book, a smaller ebook, about 100 blog posts and deliver about 50 talks all over the world.
People ask me all the time how I can be so prolific. "Where do all your ideas come from?" they ask.
The answer is simple: I put my internal editor on hold for first drafts. This allows me to crank stuff out very quickly. A technique called "Freewriting" that I learned from Mark Levy in his terrific "Accidental Genius" allows me to get ideas down very quickly without seeing if it is "good."
With Freewriting, I write and write and write for ten minutes or thirty minutes without caring about spelling or grammar. Then I look for nuggets of inspiration, which I edit to become blog posts. The better blog posts then become raw materials for books and stories in my speeches.
Accidental Genius is your guide to Freewriting. But it more than that. It is your guide to success.
