Sometimes you need a shortcut.

You can’t always spend hours researching and thinking about a topic. Sometimes you need a writing idea that’s quick to execute. And brings in a ton of readers.

I work 9–5 but manage to publish 4 articles/week. I have 3 templates I use whenever I need a quick article. They are like a cheat code.

When you are out of ideas and need to produce something fast, use one of these 3 ideas.

1. Showcase your process

Readers love to hear how you do something.

So take them behind the scenes and walk them through a process you use. You might think you don’t have any but you do. Describe how exactly you do something:

  • read so many books
  • save 15% each month
  • your morning routine
  • eat healthy meals all week

Anything related to your niche works. It’ll be quick to write because no research or thinking is needed.

Why this works
