The going for web content writers have become better and worse at the same time. Let me explain. You are better off as a web writer today than say a year ago because there are more avenues to get your writing read and appreciated. If blogs and articles were all that you had then, the social media boom has made it possible for more people to come across your content. It has become worse because of the same reason! With more platforms to publish your writing, you have to be a prolific writer in order to cope up. When you could get away with writing just a blog post or an article on alternate days, a web writer today has to make room to draft Twitter updates as well!
That brings us to the question: how can you increase your productivity as a writer? Let us cancel out some of the stock responses to this question. For example, you cannot pump up your writing volume simply by writing more. This is not a mechanical task that you have to just put in effort and time to increase the production. Writing requires a frame of mind. If you are not inspired or ready enough to write more content on a daily basis, you will end up producing drivel. That will do nothing for your website or your credibility as a writer. Readers do not want to read more blog posts and articles. They want to read quality writing. Being more productive as a writer usually means increasing the volume of quality writing.
Here are some steps that will help. Decide on a writing schedule. You will have to work out a daily routine that touches all the corners of your writing ambit. Draw up a list of content requirements that you have to fulfill. Then pencil in the time allotment for each of them. Preparing the groundwork to write is integral to increasing the number of web copies that you can deliver. In the field of commercial web writing, there is nothing called ‘writer’s block’! For most writers who have a definite volume to live up to on a daily basis, chewing on the pen (or, more aptly, brooding over the keyboard!) is a luxury that they cannot afford. For web writers, the process of writing is more of practice and habit. Choose a time when you love to write. Be at your desk at that time religiously.
No writer can sustain the exhalation of creative expression for long without inhaling some in return. You will improve immensely as a writer when you read the works of others. Check out the websites that are famed for their quality content. Read. Note the expressions and usage of language. Learn how experienced writers are approaching their subject. Love the process of writing. Also, gather more knowledge and study latest trends on domains that you usually write about. That is the best way to become a more prolific writer.
