Episode 72: Becoming a more Productive Writer with Bryan Collins

In this episode, I interview Bryan Collins, an author from Ireland who helps writers build authority and earn a living from their creative work. He’s published several books on becoming a writer and on writing productivity, as many writers want to write faster and produce more (myself included). While some of his tips are old friends of mine (and yes they help), Bryan offered some great strategies to keep going so you can ultimately write, “the end.”

In this episode, we discussed:

  • The value of feedback & “practicing in public”
  • That it’s easier to write fast when you’re writing what you really enjoy writing – not a shocker but it definitely bears repeating!
  • His top three tips he has for writing more (from his book of 33 tips – which is a solid, quick read)
  • You don’t have to type to write and how other methods help him write more
  • The value of planning writing sessions
