If it Saves Time, Then Why Wouldn’t You?!
Getting into the daily writing groove isn’t always easy, especially if you have writer’s block or just lack the time to write. And when ideas aren’t flowing, you’re not going to get any closer to reaching your audience. You’re just going to get frustrated and waste time or lose the opportunity to get articles on the screens of readers and publishers.
Toss the pen and paper and forget your keyboard. Have you tried talking it out – that is verbally writing?
Some people speak more eloquently (and even more plainly) than they are able to with the written word. And it’s no wonder! Often, there’s more freedom in the spoken word because you’re able to seamlessly ride on a thought (or just let those thoughts take you to wherever you need to go). But speaking into a recorder and then having to listen to the recording once again to write down every one of your thoughts doubles (if not triples) the time it takes to write the article.
If we’re trying to save time and not waste MORE time, what’s the solution to this creative vs. time debacle?
Enter voice or audio transcription software.
Many Expert Authors swear by voice transcription software because they can write when the idea strikes (whenever, wherever) or they can write during their daily writing sessions. It’s also great for recording new article ideas and then creating MORE timely, original articles that will reach new and loyal readers. And get this – it’s often done in less time than it takes to sit, brainstorm, and then draft the articles out longhand. Some have even claimed they were able to write 8x’s faster than typing an article.
So, should you use voice transcription software?
We’re inclined to say yes – anything that helps you get more out of less time – you should absolutely try it. However, there’s a kink or two that I’ve seen in reviews and in experience: grammar and organization. If you proofread your articles thoroughly and perhaps come up with an outline prior to using the voice transcription software, then these kinks should be smoothed out and the method will work incredibly.
