50 Productivity Tips to Boost Your Brainpower As A Writer[infographic]

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. ~Stephen King

As a writer of fiction or non-fiction, hard work is what separates the dreamers from the achievers. Without hard work all you are is:

  • a freelancer without any clients
  • an author without any readers
  • a blogger without any traffic

But hard work alone won’t help. Working hard on its own won’t draw out that great work you have inside you.

Rather, you need to be productive with your time.

The Cambridge dictionary defines productivity as ‘the rate at which a person, company, or country does useful work.’

For you as a writer the most important word in that definition is ‘useful’. ‘Useful’ work is work that matters, work that counts.

In other words creative work.

And that takes brainpower as a writer.

Here are 50 Productivity Tips to help you unleash your brainpower.

Go create that great work you have inside you…

Don’t get it right, just get it written. ~James Thurber
