Janet B. Cole reports:
"Article writing has become very lucrative today especially since the advent of the [I]nternet. The problem many writers have is the pay. With low payout per article, in order to make a living or at least a supplemental income, writers need to produce multiple articles...Five articles a day is 35 articles per week. Many people quickly run out of ideas for topics. One strategy is to surf the [I]nternet and write down every idea that pops in your head. The ideas need not have any direction, just write them down. You can review them later. Another approach is to brainstorm. Once again, you are merely accumulating a list of potential topics that you find interesting. Each day select the five topics you find most interesting to write about. The average writer can produce an article in 20 - 30 minutes...I advise you to increase your speed. A good article writer can finish an article in 10 - 20 minutes, thus substantially reducing your time. With practice and organization, anyone can write fast articles. After choosing your topics, create a list of [subpoints] you will make in each article. These points are the roadmap of your article. Now that the guns are loaded, your next task is to time how fast it takes to complete one article and then steadily try to reduce it each time. Eventually your concentration will increase to the point where you can rattle off all five articles in 1 to 1 ½ hours, at most. If you develop writer[']s block, simply put the article aside and begin with the next one. If changing articles does not work, then take a break for 30 minutes or even one hour. Most times you will find it more productive to take breaks between articles than to get bogged down in one that drags on. Writing 5 articles a day may seem like a daunting task, but with some discipline and a good plan, it is much easier than you would expect. In fact, you may become so successful that you'll find yourself going on to number 6 or 7 or beyond."
