Dear writers, I’ve made a new free course for you: “How to Write Faster.”
This course aims to help you become a more productive, happier, and more prolific writer.
The course consists of five “lessons” from me, and they go out by email — you can unsubscribe from the series at any time.
We will discuss:
- How to focus and avoid distraction
- Why you have less time to work than you think
- Useful gear and tips for protecting your health
- Re-designing your writing rituals
I love designing courses for writers. Over one-thousand people joined my previous free courses in 2017: they have emailed me to say those courses were “wonderful,” “very helpful,” “relevant,” and “inspiring.”
Here is the full course description:
Become a happier, more productive author
This quick course will help you establish a powerful writing habit: writing faster.
I believe that you can learn to write faster, and thus teach yourself how to finish more of the projects you start. I also believe that by writing faster, you can have more fun writing that (perhaps) you currently do.
In fact, I believe that writing quickly is an essential part of your progress and gradual self-improvement as a writer. By finishing more projects in less time, you will develop your writing skills more profoundly and more powerfully. It’s better to write fast and finish the thing — better for you in the short term (because you will have actually finished the thing) — and better for you in the long term, too (because you will gain more experience finishing things than you will being stuck and fixated over a difficult chapter or paragraph).
How is this course going to work? You will receive three emails a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Saturdays, until the course is complete. The entire series should therefore take about two weeks. There will be short writing assignments in most of the emails, to help you try out the skill or mindset shift that the email is recommending.
