There are two ways you can write, and this is coming from a guy who literally teaches people How to Write – David Perell (Read the full article here)

You can write in two ways: Printer method & Pixel method

How does a printer print a photo? Line by line, sequence by sequence. Similarly, you can write line by line, and write and rewrite every line until it’s perfect. Nail the first sentence then move on to the second, and make it perfect before moving on to the third.


You can write using the Pixel method. Instead of making every sentence perfect, you put all your ideas on paper — knowing that each one will eventually need to be refined. But instead of refining the sentence immediately after you write it, you wait until you have all your ideas on paper. Then, you rewrite each sentence until you’re happy with it.

A powerful phrase from the blog:

This technique can be used in your job hunt as well. Instead of making a pitch-perfect, make imperfect pitches. Then improve them as you go. You’ll accomplish much more, and have more chances of landing an interview! (and even a job!)
