The interview with the super-fast writer

No.32 comes with a great interview with Sean Platt - speaker, published author, and founder of the Sterling & Stone Story Studio, and most importantly - DAD.

He talks about the way he learned to write really fast as well as about getting into a flow and looking for excuses. He also offers some advice for aspiring authors and tells how his usual writing day looks like.

“Writing is just articulation on the page. And when you speak really fast, it’s because you’re excited about what you’re saying and ideas are really fluid. And writing is exactly the same. The faster you write, the closer you come to your most natural voice."

“Develop a simple ritual that will help you focus on the task and complete it within one attempt. Such a ritual will let you prepare both your workspace and your mind for a strenuous effort.

Annie Sisk - the face behind Pajama Productivity, wrote about the “Just This Once” syndrome that can easily ruin your productivity.
