One of the things that slows me down is that I'm a two finger typist.
In a way this is ridiculous, because so far I've written over 500 articles, a business book and a 75,000 word copywriting course.
At some point, I should have learned to touch type. But I didn't.
To speed things up, I'm now experimenting with a program that allows me to speak, and then it simply transcribes my words into a Word document.
In fact, this post is my very first try of the software. It's called Dragon Naturally Speaking.
This document seems to be going okay so far.
I don't know how well this would work for everyone else, but for myself, my writing style is very similar to my speaking style. So I think it may turn out to be a pretty good fit. And I imagine I'll be able to get a lot more done this way. I'm thinking in particular of writing quick e-mails, writing out to-do lists and maybe even writing whole articles this way.
(Confession: This post didn't work out perfectly, so I had to do a little editing with my keyboard. But I think with a little practice, the need for editing will be minimal.)
