Summary

Master the inner game of writing!

Writing is an intensely personal act, yet all writers face similar problems related to focus, procrastination, creativity, and productivity.

This book combines the field-tested practices of successful and productive writers with insights from cognitive science. By understanding how your mental processes affect the work, you can master the inner game of writing.

The Writer's Process is a practical guide to finding your best writing process. Topics include:

  • How to invite your brain to work when you're not actively writing
  • Why writing is like baking bread, with many steps including periods of incubation
  • How to structure your surroundings for each phase of the writing process

Brilliant conclusions on other self help books.

Anne Janzer successfully makes helpful conclusions on top of conclusions from other writing self help books.
I've read all of the other books she mentions in this book and her new view on their material are very clever.
So you could call what she does a meta-analysis and she does it very good.

A kick start to your writing

Having fallen into the state of a lapsed writer, allowing life to distract from following the creative muse, I found this book an inspiration, with the author's methods to better writing. Although I don't personally subscribe to the idea of mapping everything out before stating to scribing as if I know what's ahead for my characters, the whole creative importance drys up. But her earnest delivery has encouraged me to dust off half-finished projects and revisit them.
