"Fantastic tips and excellent writing advice!"
Informative, Relatable, Helpful
I love how easy it was to relate to the author and how clear and understandable the information is. I found the tips very helpful.
The narrative voice was clear and relatable.
Found the information provided extremely helpful.
Any author who is looking for a writing boost at any point in their career would enjoy this audio book. I was in a bit of a writing slump and it got me back on course immediately.
The information was easy to follow and very relevant. Practical and sensible. Glad to hear that I follow most of the steps that Rachel does.
"Could You Be Writing Faster?"
If you're an author who hasn't spent a lot of time analyzing your writing practice, this is a must-read. Rachel Aaron takes you through her own process, where she's discovered how to write better and faster.
She talks about her approach, and gives helpful advice on plotting and editing. I know some writers won't agree with everything she says. But this is what works for her, and learning what others do can only be helpful.
I've gotten a lot out of this book, and that's something that will help me for years to come.
"Good news: planning can save the day!"
This is a fascinating and tremendously helpful book! As a new writer, I've gone through several books and laboriously typed every page... And then had to make a lot of changes later. It took forever. But Rachel has a good way of showing you how to plan out your book and take care of your writing schedule so that the words flow so much faster. And along with the planning, she says there will be a huge reduction in the amount of edits you have to do later... Which we all know is the hardest part of writing. Its an process, and I look forward to trying it.
Basically preparation is the key to writing more. Some helpful information for new writers. Experienced writers may find the chapters about outlining scenes and knowing what you're going to write before you sit down to do it helpful
A pantser would not benefit from this book at all.
"Great writing advice"
This book offers excellent writing strategies for the professional or would be professional writer. Her ideas are very practical and easy to use. I think the slightly more experienced writer will get the most of these tips.
I've already becoming putting these tips into plan. Nanowrimo is right around the corner. I plan to use these tips to help me reach my daily goals.
Have the e - version . Ms. Aaron lays out what I know I knew but so often in school and general public gets beat off us. Down to earth straight forward sharing of solid advice. In fact I re-read or listen again when I need encouragement. If you write you know we are wired a little differently and so great to find another like wired mind.
"For list lovers"
If you love lists like I do you'll love this book. It's a great step by step method of not only writing quickly but writing well.
Read a lot of writing books and this one had gems I'd never heard before. Right up my alley!
