As someone who writes productivity books, I get the occasional message asking for advice on how to become a more productive writer. (Guilty admission: I’m writing this piece, in part, to have an article to point folks towards in the future.) Whenever someone asks, my advice is always the same: give yourself permission to write slower.
Writing fast works when you know exactly what you want to say, or when you’re doing some kind of stream-of-consciousness writing in a journal.
