If you often find yourself staring at a blank screen as the minutes tick by, check out this advice from Steve Masters, services director at Vertical Leap.

He has listed seven ways to help writers become more time-efficient, with tips ranging from how to easily gather your information and data, to producing an eye-catching headline.

He notes that his advice “isn't about trying to break records”, but about making each section of the writing process much easier to manage when you don't have time to spare.
