Speed Article Writing Strategy

Watch Dave Lakhani’s video about how to write a book very quickly:

The exact same strategy he’s promoting is one I’ve recommended for several years for creating articles from audio recordings, having them transcribed, and adding article titles, keywords and quick edit job to produce mountains of fresh, relevant, timely and best of all.. UNIQUE article content directly from your expert brain.

Great video Chris. I had never thought along these lines before. I could see this working well for me in my articles as well as a book.

WOW! (okay already, I get it, keyword overload. I’m working off a caffiene high – what can I say.)

I do like this idea, it’s very similar to the one I use to write my five step ebook. Awesome principles to apply with just a few steps to success.

Okay, now to quell the critics. I want to tell everyone that I have written many books in a similar fashion. Title Page – Table of Contents – Points within each chapter and then go for speech recognition.

Example this book was done in 2-days (bonus content from previous articles here):


This one in 3-days:


This one in 4-days (using half of existing content from articles I wrote previously):


He’s right. Each book took me 1-2 days to edit and insert pictures. If I had a transcriber, and it is a subject I know a lot about, he’s right, you could probably do it in one-day, one long day, but I agree. May as well leverage a little outsourcing and technology I say!

What I am saying is, that it is possible. You need to get this information down, then you can spend time tweaking it. Now, I know the first two are not full length books, but the third one is. Please be thinking here.

For my critics, no, my articles are not perfect, yes, I am a power-writer, speed-writer, or content hurricane in motion, but, I submit to you that using such techniques definitely gets the information out there. Procrastination and hesitation is silly, go for it.

Great quick video, rich with content Chris.
Thanks for the tips and strategy. This can be used in many ways beyond that first book. The simplicity of the steps is exciting and I am ready to go get those 16 sheets of paper!

Make it a great day!

It’s a great plan, with one small addition. Part of our job as professionals is to answer the questions that others don’t even know to ask. Some of that is very important stuff.

So add a few questions in each chapter that are “bonus” questions, those that your readers might not even think to ask.
