Time Saving Writing Secrets for AC Content Producers
1. Jump into the Writing
Forget note taking, using a notebook for ideas or mapping out any concepts on paper. When you have an idea, open a new document in your preferred word processor and type it in. If other ideas come to mind, or you are in a brain storming mood, go for it. Brainstorm right there in the document.
When finished, copy and paste any ideas that could make their own articles into another document. Remember the minimum word count for an AC article is only 400 words. That original idea could generate three or four solid and specific article ideas.
2. Go Paperless
It is much easier to find a document on your computer than it is to find that small piece of torn paper that has your best article idea ever on it. Those pieces of paper add up, make piles, get lost, and can look a little daunting, even when they are organized in some way.
By moving away from paper, you can also force yourself to get in the habit of actually starting the write and article when you have an idea. therwise, the idea could sit for days, weeks or even months, waiting for you to find it again.
3. Stay in the Groove
When you sit down to write, just write. Do not do anything esle besides write. When you finish one article, start on the next. Do not stop to enter the first article into the AC system. When you are in a writing groove, just keep writing.
4. Try to Exhaust the Topic
Try to use the same session to write as many articles that came from the original idea. When you are in the writing groove and are thinking about a specific topic, it’s best to just keep going with any articles that are related to that original idea.
5. Allow Creative Leaps
If, in the midst of writing an article an idea for another articles comes to you, scroll to the bottom of the document and type in the idea. You don’t want to lose it. For example, when writing about stationary bikes I was thinking about how compact they are compared to other gym equipment. This led me to write another article about gym equipment that is truly compact.
Hopefully these time-saving writing secrets will help newer AC Content producers.
