Buy the Book

I wrote this book to solve my own problem, which is that I write very slowly.

 

Unlike most "Write Fast" books, which stress outlining, it draws on discoveries from writing research which haven't yet reached the popular press.

      Both planning and drafting use all the cognitive power and short-term memory you have. For best results, do them seperately.

      Freewriting ("writing by the seat of your pants") seems to be the best source of new ideas, possibly because it accesses long-term memory in a different way than outlining does.

      Typing, longhand, and dictation use different mental processes. If you're stuck, switch media.

      There are many strategies that produce successful writing, but only one of them, outlining, is taught in school. If you're not an outliner, trying to become one will hurt your writing. The strategy that feels most natural to you will serve you best.

I am greatly indebted to John R. Hayes, the most famous writing researcher in the world, and to his collegues in writing research. (Yes, it's the same Hayes, he's my dad.)
