Do you have to deal with writing over 3,000 words a day? Do you often wish to have a superpower to speed up your writing?
No worries, I’ve got you covered!
The everyday routine of a writer can be pretty hectic? It often happens that I have to write up to 5,000-6,000 words a day. Not only the writing process can get pretty annoying and tiring, but all the editing and proofreading can make it even worse.
Writers often go through a writing stress, which is a symptom of the professional burnout. It can wear you out mentally, thus affecting your creativity and ability to maintain focus.
But magic does exist and owing to the power of the Internet, you can make content writing easier. In this article, I want to share my experience of working with online tools that helped me speed up my writing and save some time for myself.
Content writers who work with the clients who prefer a hands-off approach, often have to deal with the problem of generating interesting topics. We all know how it works: you come up with cool engaging topics at first, but then your inspiration just disappears.
Thankfully, there’s a number of title-generating tools you can use:
- Content Idea Generator by Portent. This tool I super interactive and easy to use. You enter a subject you need to write about, and the website generates the title to fit your needs. To get better results, don’t capitalize keywords and put them in the singular. Here’s an example of a pretty cool title:
- Blog Title Generator by SEOPressor. This online tool helps you create an engaging title, but it works quite differently than the previous one. Here you can adjust your keyword to a particular industry, brand/product or location. It allows you to make the title more specific. Moreover, it generates 3 titles at once!
- Title Generator. This online tool is a quick way to generate over a hundred titles. You’ll definitely be able to pick something cool for your content.
Generating titles can sufficiently speed up the whole writing process. Although there’s more to it: you need to make sure that your article has a good rating, is engaging and attracts attention. My friend and a fellow writer Jack Stephenson, a content manager at IsAccurate, once recommended using different title analyzing tools online. You can come across a lot of them online, and most of them work perfectly every time. Personally, I like using CoSchedule Headline Analyzer to see whether my titles can potentially drive more traffic and have nice search results.
No need to remind that editing and proofreading are essential. But it can take a lot of time, and for me, this process is absolutely exhausting. Besides, there are days when my attention basically switches off and I can miss even the most obvious mistakes.
Using tools can speed up the proofreading process and help you track all grammatical, spelling or punctuation mistakes. I always recommend using the following tools:
- Grammarly: the most efficient tool to check your content for any mistakes. It’s free, but there’s also a premium option. If you decide to purchase it, you’ll be able to get additional features, like improving your writing style, identifying overused words and even getting a plagiarism report.
- Rewarded Essays: machine proofreading is not always working, so the best way is still to work with someone else to help you edit and improve your content. This tool offers you the help of the professional writers, who will gladly help you proofread your writing.
- Supreme Dissertations: if you’re writing highly scientific content, you might need someone who specializes in academic writing, which has a lot of peculiarities and greatly differs from the general content you find on the Internet. This is a great tool for those, who need someone skilled in academic writing.
- Hemingway App: I use this tool regularly to check the readability of my content. If you upload your content through a WordPress editor, it comes with its own readability check, but it’s always better to double-check.
- Flash Essay: the best about this tool is how quickly you can get your content edited and proofread. So if you are in a hurry and need a speedy high-quality proofreading, you need this tool.
- Get Good Grade: this tool is widely used by students, who often struggle with editing and proofreading their college papers. But why not take advantage of it and use this tool for your content writing needs, huh?
- Hot Essay Service: another great tool for quick editing and proofreading. Here you can also get a plagiarism report to make sure that your content is original.
Citator: I often write content on scientific topics, but I often don’t want to spend time sweating over the references. This citation tool does everything for you, you just need to include all the information about the source, and it gives you a reference ready to use.
3.Visual content tools
It’s obvious that you should include some visuals in your content to make it more readable and engaging. But instead of referencing visual content from another website, it’s always better to create the visual content of your own. Here are the tools I frequently use to quickly create visual content for my writing:
- Canva: this is actually my favorite tool! It’s absolutely free, it’s got a lot of creative tools for creating visual content. You can use it for everything: presentations, infographics, posters, headers, covers, etc.
- Infogram: infographics make your content more engaging and informative. Infogram helps you create professional infographics quickly and easily.
- Survey Monkey: depending on your content, you can include a survey to provide more data to support your ideas. Survey Monkey can help you create cool surveys quickly and help you analyze the results.
Use tools to speed up your writing!
The writing process shouldn’t be exhausting, especially when there are so many great tools to help you speed it up. I’m glad to share my experience of using such tools! Hopefully, they will make your writing process more exciting.
