7 Ways to Become More Effective When You Are Writing

By Karin Wälivaara | Blogging

You are sitting down to blog or creating any other form of written content.

Although you have the subject clear and have done your research you struggle with the writing.

Sound Familiar?

I’m going to give you some tips to write more effective.

It is important, not only for your own peace of mind, you’ll feel less frustrated if the writing doesn’t take forever every time, but also for your readers.

- If you struggle to write it – they will struggle to read it. - Vitaly Grinblat

They might give up before they have started.

  • Be in the right mindset when you start. Do whatever gives you energy and focus. Your favorite music, meditation, coffee or maybe read something for a couple of minutes to get in the flow.
  • Take breaks while you are writing. We need to restart our brain a bit, let it rest. We also need to move so take these breaks away from the computer!  – Pomodoro  is a technique where you break your tasks up in smaller pieces traditionally 25 minutes and then take a short break. (Use a timer) This will make you more productive in any area – try it!
  • Don’t forget to exercise We aren’t created to sit all day so you need to exercise, take a walk or go to the gym, do some yoga or go for a run whatever you like, this also gives oxygen to your brain and makes you function better all the time.

    Don’t multitask. This is the opposite of being productive. You aren’t focusing on anything 100% and everything will take longer. It’s a myth that multi-tasking is an effective way to work.
  • pencil
    Turn everything off. Turn off your phone, Facebook, anything that might disturb you. Answering messages or e-mails during your writing (or any other task by the way) will just result in it taking longer. You need to get in to the flow again for every interruption and that can take time.
  • pencil
    Sleep enough - If you are well rested you will perform in a better way and get more done, most people need between 7-9 hours a night.
  • pencil
    Find YOUR time. Find out what time is best for you, when are you most creative? Make that your writing-time, for some it might be in the morning (I work best before lunch) others are night-owls and get their best work done late at night. When are your best time?

I hope this has helped you become more focused on your writing and more productive. Let me know in the comments.
