1. Give Yourself LESS Time Than You Think You Need.
Most professional writers can write a fully researched article in a couple of hours. It might take them another hour to revise the article.

Short story writers who are publishing their fiction on Amazon might need five hours to write a story. However, as with writing articles, they don’t write from go to whoa.
