Speed Writing

I am really not sure why even attempted to start using this software which would honk at me so soon that I am not used to write even a line. But anyway I wanted to give a try and I think the start is really good.

Now I think this is one perfect tool which will help me update my blog on a very frequent basis to keep up to what I was planning last week. I was amazed at the thought of 700 words in 15 minutes and see a lot people even exceeding more than 1000 words in less than 30 minutes. I would be happy even if I can achieve something in the range of 300 to 350 words in 30 mins.

Although I have started to write, I now realise that just writing skill is not all that I am lacking but also the vocabulary required to appropriately convey more with less words. Not that my understanding of English words is very poor but at least my usage of the english words in the speech or even while writing is really poor. It could be like a chicken and egg situation. Unless I start or attempt to write which I have taken as a first step, I cannot improve my vocabulary in my talk or in writing and I always shy away from attempting to even write because of this lack. So now, I intend to break this jinx.

As I am writing I am so curious about the word count. I have not felt so challenged for time in such a longgggggggg time. Last time I remember this happening is probably way back in my engineering days that too only during exams as I had the same laziness towards writing and so never wrote any other time apart from the mandatory writing required for the completion of syllabus or meet the requirement.

I should start using this link more often for my writings. This has increased my writing speed even before I am able to complete my target of 350 words. This should help the speed of my thought flow which is one of the primary reasons for me to start writing as I had mentioned in my previous post. This is a definite must for all those who want to start writing fast. I have not made a note of the time when I started but I definitely know that I have written these 400 words in less than 10 minutes and that too when the whole article was started even without thinking what I should be writing.

There is one problem, I now see with this online software. Since this keeps warning you as soon as you stop typing for a few seconds (less than 10 seconds, I dont know the exact time as I cannot even measure this as this does not allow), you continue to write at a very good speed. This is making me feel very satisfied which is not a good feel. This is one feeling in me which stops me from improving or working on something on a consistent basis. What I am talking is that I feel satisfied as I think I have achieved quite a bit of the what goals I had set only in my second article after this new start. This might not be a problem for many who do not have this kind of weakness. But I also believe the only way to get away with any short comings in yourself is by constantly bombarding yourself with the things which make you bored or even this current feeling of satisfaction. I am not sure if I have made my point clear. If I force myself to do the same thing repeatedly which makes me feel bored, I think it will help me realise the task is infact not boring and you start to enjoy this. So I will plan to use this software and take it as a challenge to write at a fast pace even on subjects which are quite unknown to me.

This is indeed a good start to the new beginning.

Note: This tool is particularly useful for people who wants to start writing. Not really for people who have never written but for people like me who are lazy to even write about anything.
