Astral Codex Ten
Aceso Under Glass

A friend of mine used to ghostwrite papers. As I recall, they could turn out 2 or 3 essays a day, equivalent to 20 or 30 pages. If I had to write that much per day, how would I do it?
Don’t focus on generating new insights.
Minimize research time.
Outline to a general template.
Practice and practice and practice.
I don’t plan to ever write that much per day. But even if I only write for 2 hours a day, I could probably hit 5 medium-quality pages per hour, by focusing on efficiency. I’ll try to do that - after all, quantity becomes quality.tags: meta
