It used to take me 8 to 10 hours to write a single blog post. I have two kids and a full-time job, which means I can only write for an hour or two early in the morning or late at night. A 10 hour article translates to a week’s worth of work for me.

I started a writing challenge a few weeks ago and have skyrocketed my speed. I’ve been writing, editing, and publishing a 750–1,000 word article almost every day in less than 60 minutes.

Doing this every day has helped me discover the trick to writing faster. It has also made me see the most common speed bumps that prevent most people from writing faster.

Here are the only four keys you need to start publishing in under an hour. Every. Single. Day.

1. Choose An Inflexible Hour To Write

By inflexible, I mean an hour that can’t be compromised. I’m not talking about setting a timer. If you’re like me, timers are worthless because we both know that when it dings, we can ignore it and keep writing.

Do you know what you can’t ignore? Getting your kindergartner to school on time.
