I have rebranded, retitled, redesigned, and republished a resource I completed at the end of 2014, detailing how dictation has revolutionized my fiction writing and blogging.
I also use dictation for some non-fiction tasks, but I have found it better for creative thought than it is for assimilating or synthesizing.
That said, I meet people all the time who love dictation for non-fiction writing, so it’s all finding what works best for you!
So here’s the book!
The Productive Author’s Guide to Dictation gets into some detail on suggested software (like Dragon) and gear, but it is mostly a description of best practices that have worked for me and includes a system of drills similar to those I used to teach myself this skill.
Because it is definitely a skill! It takes some time to get used to, but I feel the world is heading in this direction anyway, so as writers who pound the keys so much, why not adopt this now and save our poor bodies unnecessary repetitive strain.
I’ve also seen higher word counts and increased productivity.
And I repriced it. 🙂 So if $4.99 is in your budget, you may want to snag the ebook today!
I’ll of course also be posting when the print copy is available.
I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Best of luck with all the summer writing projects going on out there!!
