Are you always late because you can’t write faster? Whether you’re a college student attempting to meet deadlines or a writer trying to complete your first draught, doing your task without burning out is difficult.

With the correct tactics, you may spend less time thinking about writer’s block and writing more. Here are six unique strategies to write quicker and better.

Not losing focus

When drafting your paper, you swear you recall where you got important information. You look through all your open tabs to locate the information, but you need help maintaining your thought line.

This often happens when you have several tabs open. Instead of searching for supporting evidence, mark problematic paragraphs and phrases using colorful highlighters. Yellow indicates citation, red implies irrelevant arguments, and blue demands proof.

Noting missing information adjacent to phrases or paragraphs is another method. You may use your shorthand or editor’s lingo, like TK (to come), to emphasize that more items will be added. Write your draft first, and fill in the gaps afterward.

Lower the bar

Writing goals sometimes seem complicated, whether you want to finish that project quicker or blog more often. 

You might not want to do it in the first place because you think of it as one big sum. To get into the habit of writing, start by making your goal small so it’s easy to keep going.

Using a timer

Instead of relying on a strict deadline to keep you on task, try using a timer to force yourself to write while limiting your ability to become sidetracked. This might help you become more conscious of the time you waste on activities like checking social media or switching between tasks too often. Use a timer to keep track of your breaks to avoid being absent for too long.

Late-night creativity

Recent studies have shown that our minds are most open to new ideas during the hours we feel too sleepy/  When you’re sleep-deprived, your mind might wander, leading to unexpected conclusions. An insight, realization, or revelation will come to you suddenly. Try to jot down your ideas when you are too sleepy, and get a jump start on your assignment with those thoughts.

Discipline is the key; procrastination is the Achilles heel. Stay focused on completing the work by developing a habit, and you will find a sense of accomplishment washing over you—nothing sweeter than freedom after finishing a task.
