How To Write 1,000+ Words in Just Minutes (Tips for Writers Series)

In this first Tips for Writers video, I show you how to speed up your writing routine exponentially using free speech-to-text software and Google Docs.

While it’s not a perfect system, it IS a great way to beat writer’s block and get your rough draft down onto the page by using the power of your voice! I’ve found this really useful both with freelance writing and working my book projects.

    LOVE THIS. Also I recommend trying different tools. I have written way more since using a new writing app called Title ( If there are other Title members here would love to connect/share profile IDs. 🙂


    In the mobile version, there is no mike so how to do on a mobile phone. Your video is awesome.

    I have to write seven papers in less than a month for my master's and this has helped me so freaking much, I had been hours just staring at my paper with no idea what to write next, I tried this and in half an hour I got 9 paragraphs!

    So damn helpful!!!!! Thanks a lot!! I have my master thesis due in 3 weeks and struggeling with the other half of 45 pages…this looks like the thing I was searching to overcome my procrastinating 😀 visible results immediately are so inspiring to do the rest…thank you so much.

    I just tried this with my Chromebook. It hears quite literally, so you may have to speak like a robot, but as I already kind of sound like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, that's not such a difficult thing to do. The stock microphone works just fine, on top of that, but a higher quality microphone would do well to serve as a better hearing assistant. it also censors cuss words like s*** and f***.

    You don't need to spend a ton of money either. When I decided to pull the trigger and get Dragon Naturally Speaking I looked on Ebay and found a brand new box that was a couple of versions old. If you can live with version 12 instead of version 13 you can save a lot of money. Ver. 13 (Home version) is listed for $75 by Nuance, but I found Ver. 12 for less than $20 on Ebay. And it works flawlessly. NaNoWriMo is coming up in a couple of weeks and I'm going to spend the entire month of November using Dragon to "write" my next novel.

    A nice video Nathan, thanks. You also have a terrific speaking voice! I use Dragon Dictate on my iPod Touch, as I like to 'write' while I'm away from the computer (too many potential distractions). I'll have to see if there's a Google app that would enable me to do what you're doing from the iPod (although, I'm not thrilled with letting Google see any content from me…as they'll find a way to direct ads to me because of it, somehow). 🙂

    I've subscribed and look forward to the series!
