Why Increasing Your Typing Speed is One of the Very Best Things You can do as An Author

Our brains work a LOT faster than we can speak, write, type, or even read

If you’re an author or writer, then the speed at which you write books is primarily dictated by how fast you can type

  1. Firstly, the faster you can type, the more books you can write
  2. Secondly, being able to type fast is important so that you can type fast enough to not interrupt your flow of thinking
  3. Thirdly, being able to type fast is critically important in moments of ‘flow’ and ‘trance state’. Flow states are when you can produce work at incredible pace and at great quality. Your best work is produced in these moments. Typing fast allows you to make the most of these special moments

Please Note: We refer to them as ‘flow moments’ and ‘trance states’. However, they can last for days. Think of them as times when everything comes together and you reach a higher state of writing

It is quite possible to Double Your Typing Speed

Most authors fall into one of these two categories

  1. Typing 40 words per minute, with not very good accuracy
  2. Using hunt and peck or some really slow method of typing and basically going at 30 words per minute or less

It is very straightforward to double your typing speed. Getting to between 60 to 80 words per minute just requires 2 to 6 weeks of practice. Half an hour a day of deliberate practice. Putting in 21 total hours of practice over 6 weeks will double your typing speed and it will

  1. Double the amount of writing you can do
  2. Halve the amount of time you spend on non productive things such as writing emails

You just have to motivate yourself. And the perfect motivation is …

Every book you write is a marketing channel to all your other books
