Write At Least 1000 Words Every Day For A Week

By Jim Green


Now why would anyone want to do that: write 1000 words every day for a week?

Well you wouldn't if you are an established writer; you are already pumping out much more than that on an average day.

But you might want to give it a try if you are just starting out or if you have been writing for a while and are still struggling to break through.

Not just any old 1000 words though because that would be pointless; 1000 words tagged to the premise that presupposes you have identified a topic, you have researched the topic; you know
your topic inside out - be it in the realms of fiction or

When you stick at it and knock out 1000 words every day for seven days you will discover in Week 2 that 2000 words a day is feasible, then 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000; whatever.

And as the weeks roll by not only will your output improve but so too will the quality of your writing.

But here is the real cruncher...

In tandem with your ever-increasing output will be a
commensurate decrease in information overload, freeing your subconscious to work on new ideas, new concepts, new projects - and soon the fruits of its creativity will come flying at you in all directions.

So here in essence is what you get when you make up your mind to write 1000 words every day for a week:

1. Your output will automatically increase in the weeks to follow;

2. The quality of your writing will improve dramatically;

3. Information overload will decrease and make way for a fusion of new creativity.

This is the formula I used at the outset of my own writing career and currently I churn out around 10,000 words every day of which only 1000 might be directly related to a specific book project; the majority of my productivity being dispersed between
articles, press releases, web copy and the like.

But it's all grist to the mill; the mill, the catalyst, the
engine room that creates the harvest; your overall creative output. JIM GREEN is a bestselling author in the realms of fiction and niche non-fiction with 24 titles to his credit among the latest of which are Your Retirement Masterplan
