Below is a quick excerpt from it.

Freewriting is the basis of being prolific.  You may have practiced it during a beginner’s writing class.

The basic exercise is simply this.  Write nonstop for 5 or 10 minutes.  Write about anything that comes to mind.  Don’t stop no matter what, even if the student next to you falls over on the floor (ok, maybe then).

You may end up writing, “This is a stupid exercise.”

That’s OK.  Just don’t stop writing.  Don’t make corrections.  Don’t backspace to edit, even for spelling mistakes.  Absolutely no censoring what comes out.

Write.  Don’t think.

Allow your writing to flow in whatever direction it wants.  Don’t worry about what comes out.  You don’t have to show it to anyone.  You can’t fail unless you quit before the time is up.

The goal here is to bypass your inner critic, your perfectionist, and all those voices from your past.  It’s to feel freedom in your writing.  That’s the same feeling you want to tap into no matter what subjects you commonly write about.

You can also practice free writing with a defined subject.  Let’s say you write about health and fitness.

Sit down, set the clock for 10 minutes, and write about how you personally overcame cravings.  Write at the top of the page, “The last time I had a craving was when I desperately wanted a…”

Describe the solution.  Let it flow.  Don’t stop writing until the time is up.  You can keep right on going past the 10 minute time period if great material is coming out of you.

That’s exactly how you write the rough drafts of shorter pieces of content such as blog posts, emails, and articles.

Start with a common question in your market.  Look back to a point where you solved the problem and cover in detail how the solution worked for you.

It’s the natural progression of problem to solution.  Here are a few more starter questions that should work for any type of non-fiction content:

Who was your mentor?

What book/movie/play changed your life?

What questions have people asked about your subject?

Why don’t people understand your passion?

Who shouldn’t listen to you?  Who can’t you help?

Do you have any embarrassing stories your readers will identify with?

Have you had any interesting phone calls or emails lately about this subject?

What major advice in your industry is dead wrong?

What is the most exciting part/fun part of what you do every day?

What’s the biggest or most common mistake made by beginners in your subject?

What hobbies or other interests do you have?  How do they relate to your subject?

What popular news relates to your industry?

What RECENT TV show, radio program, movie, or book held your interest?

What revelations just HIT YOU at some point (about solving the problem)?
