Are you a Fast Freelance Writer?

How fast do you write? This is a question that is asked of me all the time. When I speak with others about the projects I complete each month they always assume that I am a super fast freelance writer. Generally speaking, I don’t consider myself a “fast” writer. That being said, what does it mean to be fast? Until you answer this question you will never know if you are truly a fast writer.

I don’t know what it means to be a fast freelance writer. Does this mean that you can write a 500 word article in 10 minutes? Am I slow it if takes me 20 minutes? To me, fast is a silly word to use when it comes to describing a freelance writer. Sure, it is better to write fast than slow. But this is only the case if you are putting together quality content.

Many aspiring freelance writers feel that the faster they write the more money they can earn. In other words, it is better to churn out 20 articles per day than 15. I guess this holds true to a certain extent, but remember that your clients do not care how fast you write. What they do care about is quality content that is delivered on time. Are you compromising quality because you are rushing? If so, you will find your clients moving on soon enough.

All in all, you can write as fast as you want as long as you are not trading quality for speed. I will never know what it means to write fast. I research each project, and then get started. If I get done in a hurry, great. If it takes me a bit longer, that is fine too. As long as I am producing high quality content I never think too much about speed.
