3 Tips To Write Faster and Create Better Content To Sell More Art
Find Your Best Time
Have you noticed that you perform better at specific everyday jobs during different times of the day? You probably do some jobs at the same time of the day without even thinking about it.
Those particular jobs have become a part of a daily habit for you.
You do them, and you do them well because you do not have to think about it. You are on autopilot.
To write faster and create better content, you will want to find the best time for you to write.
Clear mind – When do you have a clear mind?
During the day, your mind will become filled with daily noise. You will need to focus on what needs to get done for your job and family.
What is the time of the day that is best for you to free yourself from those distractions for a short period?
Focused – When are you the most focused?
Everyone is different. Some people can concentrate once they get out of bed. Other people can not say three words without their first cup of coffee.
Find what the best time of the day is for you.
You will find that when you are focused, you will be able to write faster and create better content.
Fewer distractions – What part of the day do you have fewer distractions?
During the day, you can quickly find yourself being tugged from multiple directions. When is the calmest part of your day?
When you have the least amount of distractions, you will notice that you can have an article written in no time.
It will take some trial and error for you to discover when the best time is for you to write. Keep in mind your goal. You want to be able to make the most of your time, creating quality content that will sell your artwork.
Answer these questions:
- When is your mind the clearest?
- When are you most focused?
- When do you have the least distractions?
This is something that you will need to decide that works best for you.
Some people can quickly find themselves getting distracted by noise. If this is you, you will need to find the quietest part of your home to sit and write.
If you are getting distracted, you will lose track of where you are in your article, your ideas can get lost, and it will take you much longer to finish a project.
Other people find that if it is to quiet, they can not concentrate. They work better with the television or radio on.
They need some white noise to keep their mind flowing.
Some people need to get out of their house for a period of time to get their writing done. You will see that Panera or Starbucks are the places where writers hang out to get their job done.
There is no right or wrong place for writers to write as long as they get the job done.
- Do I work better where it is quiet?
- Do I work better with the television or radio on?
- Do I need to go out of the house to get more work done?
Find what works best for you and start writing in an environment that is the most productive.
No Phone or Social Media
There are a time and place for everything. Your phone and social media can eat up so much of your time if you are not careful.
Put your phone somewhere far away from your computer when you are writing.
Most of us have SmartPhones nowadays. You might not get a phone call that will distract you from your writing, but you can easily get distracted by the buzzes and dings from social media and email updates.
How many times have you heard the ding from your phone, and you stopped what you were doing and checked what it is. It is almost instant. Ding, check. Ding, check, and the day is gone.
Put the phone away. You will have time after your done writing to check all of your updates.
Writing might be one of your least favorite jobs of being an artist. However, if you want to sell your artwork, you need to create better content than your competition and promote.
These three tips will help you make the most of your time so you can spend more time in the studio while selling more of what you create.
What are your thoughts? What works best for you for your writing? I would love to hear from you.
