Trying to write content faster?
In the most cases, our normal target remains 1000 words per article if you are writing an article to get rank on the search engine for targeted keyword as well as providing rich content to the user.
Writing long articles is better for you as well as the user as well as search engines. Short articles ranging from 300-500 words are nowhere in competition for profitable keywords nowadays.
How to write publish ready 1000+ words content Quickly!
It is because Google wants to show complete articles having each and every information that user is looking. That’s why, if your articles lack content, you’ll fail to rank for the targeted keyword.
It’s not like writing content forcefully and stretch it to 1000+ words every time. It will not work.
Your article should be useful and interesting for users. They should get an answer of what they are looking for, Perfectly.
According to the mentality of the majority of the bloggers, writing 1000+ words content per article is hard. Honestly, It’s not.
You can check the size of every article recently posted on my blogs. You’ll get numbers like 1200+ at least. It takes about 2 hours to write such articles.
NOTE : Don’t think that if your typing speed is higher, you can write publish ready article at that rate. If your typing speed is 100 words per minute, it does not mean that you can write 1000 words content in 10 minutes…
I’m not saying that your typing speed will not help you to write articles faster. You’ll write content faster if your typing speed is higher than one with less typing speed.
Leaving all other things back, Let me tell you some great techniques which will help you to write content faster.
1. Faster Execution
Faster Execution is essential.
When I was new to blogging, I used to think like Just One more song, and I will start writing. In reality, I used to waste many hours listening to songs and thinking that I will start writing after this one.
It never helped me to get started with the article. You are free to Mark that once you get started with the article, you’ll complete it as soon as possible, but if you do not start, you’ll waste your time thinking about it.
If you fail to get started, you’ll never complete your 1-hour work in 1 hour. You’ll just waste your time thinking you’ll start and complete it as soon as possible but, You’ll fail.
No one can help you in this case except yourself. You can use the Extension named StayFocused to block the site that is distracting you from getting started.
Here’s how you can block the site using StayFocused.
Once you install StayFocused on your Chrome, you’ll get such dashboard by clicking on StayFocused Icon -> Settings.
From the sidebar given at the left side, click on the Blocked Sites. You’ll get one Box in which you can enter the URL of the site you want to block. Here I am going to show you practically.
After adding the site to blocked list, you’ll be able to access the site for the specific time that you have set in the Max time allowed tab you get first when you open the Settingsof the StayFocused.
Now, Let me show you what happens when you try to open any site more than you are allowed. For example, Here the Screen I got when I tried to open facebook.com.
Finally, it will not allow you to open the site you have added to the blocked list. It’s the great tool, and it’s completely free!
Many bloggers are addicted to Facebook and Youtube. You can simply use this tool to block them, and you’ll execute faster after doing so.
So, this is how you can help yourself to Execute faster.
2. Use Faster Extensions or tools
We use some extensions and tools while writing the articles like Extension to take the screenshot of the part of the screen.
If you are using some slow extensions, you’ll not be able to write content faster.
Yes, Evernote is unbeatable because it has more functions and the editing done on the screenshot using Evernote looks better because of better graphics but it take a time to download and compress the image using Evernote.
That’s why, I like to use Lightshot because, in the case of Lightshot, you just have to click on the extension icon and the next you have to select the area to take a screenshot.
It’s true that you will not get many options to edit the screenshot you’ve taken, but it’s faster.
Every screenshot you can see in the article is taken by LightShot, and it took me less than 30 seconds per screenshot to take it and upload it to the WordPress article at the specific part of the post.
3. Increase your typing speed
It will affect a lot if your typing speed is less than 30 words per minute.
I’m not saying that if you have a typing speed of 30+ words per minute, you’re going right.

It’s simple; Practice makes man perfect! Just use some tools to increase the typing speed by practicing. Here’re the tools I use.
