This book is about tools that will help you become an extremely productive as a writer.
It is not a book about how to become a great writer. It is not about grammar, spelling, punctuation, or any of the other things you need to know to be a good writer. Those things are necessary, but they are not sufficient. You need to be able to write quickly, efficiently, and effectively. This book will teach you how to do all of that, and it will teach it in a way that will make you a better writer in the long run.
## What Is This Book About?
If you’re reading this book, chances are that you already know how to write. You’ve probably been writing for a long time, and you’ve probably read a lot of books on writing. You might even be a published author. If that’s the case, then you probably already know that writing is hard. It’s not easy to write the way you want to write, and if you’re like most writers, you probably spend more time thinking about what you’re going to write than you do actually writing. That’s why I wrote this book. I want to share with you some of the things that I’ve learned over the years that have helped me become a more efficient and effective writer, so that you don’t have to go through all of the hard work that I went through to get to the point where I am today. I hope that this book will give you a leg up on the rest of the writing world, and help you to become the writer that you’ve always wanted to be.
I’m going to start this book by giving you a brief overview of the tools that I use every day to become more productive, and then I’ll go through each of those tools in more detail. After that, I’ll give you some tips on how to use each of these tools to become an even more productive writer. I’ll also give you examples of how I’ve used these tools in the past, and I’ll show you how you can use them in your own writing. Finally, at the end of the book, you’ll have a chance to ask me any questions that you might have about these tools and how they can be used to improve your writing.
## The Tools I Use to Become More Productive
The first thing that I do every morning when I wake up is check my email. If there’s something that I need to get done that day, I make sure that I get it done as soon as possible so that I can get on with my day. I’m sure that you do the same thing. You check your email first thing in the morning because you know that there’s probably going to be something there that needs to be done. If you’re a writer, there’s a good chance that your email inbox will be filled with emails from editors, agents, and publishers, all of whom want to know what you’ve been working on and what you plan to work on in the near future. If your inbox isn’t filled with those emails, it’s probably because you haven’t been working as hard as you should have been, and that’s not going to do you any good. You have to get those emails out of your inbox as quickly as possible, and the fastest way to do that is to use a tool that will allow you to filter out the emails that you’re not interested in from the ones that you are interested in.
Once I’ve checked my email, I spend the next hour or so working on whatever project I’m working on at the time. If I’m writing a book, I might be working on the first draft of that book, or I might already have a first draft and I’m just working on polishing it up. Whatever it is that I’m doing, once I’ve finished working on that project, I move on to the next one. If it’s a project that’s going to take me more than an hour or two to finish, then I might work on it for a few hours at a time, but most of the time, I work on a project for just a few minutes at time. The reason for that is that if I spend too much time working on one project, then it’s more likely that I’ll get distracted and start working on something else before I’m finished with the project that I was working on. I’ve found that the best way to avoid getting distracted is to do a little bit of work on each of my projects at the same time. That way, if I start thinking about something else, I can just pick up where I left off on the previous project instead of having to start from the beginning.
When I’m done working on my projects, I go back to my email and I check to see if there are any new emails that have come in while I was away from my computer. If so, I read those emails and respond to them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once I’ve read all of my new emails, I check my calendar to see what I have scheduled for the day. If nothing is scheduled, then that’s usually a good thing, because it means that I have the day to myself. If, on the other hand, I have something scheduled, I mark it off on my calendar and then get back to work. I don’t want to waste any time on things that aren’t going to get me anywhere, so I try to get as much work done as I can in the time that’s available to me. Once the day is over, I get up from my desk, take a shower, and get ready for the next day. Then I do it all over again.
