Summary

Do you want to write more novels? Maybe you're having trouble finding time to write in a busy, jam-packed week.

Maybe you're exhausted when you do manage to carve out some time to write.

Or maybe, when you’ve got the time and energy, you either waste time and then wonder where the day went… or you face a blank page, unable to type “anything decent.”

Pinpoint what’s stopping you - and find real solutions.

Write Every Day is specifically geared for fiction authors who are juggling busy home lives, work lives, and the new pressures to “build a platform” while simultaneously producing more books.

Instead of rote advice (i.e. “just get your butt in the chair and write”) it gives clear instructions for zeroing in on what’s really preventing you from writing, and then offers a selection of simple suggested solutions to carve out more time, get more focus, and gently dissolve writer’s block.

Similar to other books in the Rock Your Writing series, Write Every Day takes a wealth of resource material and distills it down into one clear, helpful approach.

Really useful and entertaining.

Really liked this book and will be using the suggestions.

I really enjoyed the personality that Cathy showed and even found myself laughing out loud as I listened.

Some Useful Tips

What did you like most about Write Every Day?

The book was broken down into sections about different problems that can strike writers such as fear, lack of time, lack of opportunity, and addressed each one by relating to the reader and then by suggesting various remedies.

This helped me, as someone who likes to write for leisure, but would like to take it further, to identify why I don’t write more and how I can start writing more.

There were some tips in there about getting words on the page too.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Write Every Day?

There are no characters in this book, it is a self-help book.

Which character – as performed by Cathy Yardley – was your favourite?

She read her own work very well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was not moved by this book, as it isn't a story as such, but I did find that Cathy was able to make all the situations she talks about relateable to me.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book and found it useful. I may listen to it again to recap on what she said, so it was definitely worth the money I paid for it.

Pretty good pep talk and advice

Nothing I didn't know, but it becomes validated and reinforced hearing it from a practitioner of the advice. I'm glad it wasn't any longer so I could go and listen again without wading through lot of filler material. Thank you!

How to use your time to best avantage for writing.

What made the experience of listening to Write Every Day the most enjoyable?

I mostly enjoyed the author's enthusiasm and lighthearted delivery. The text moved along quickly enough to not be boring.

Would you be willing to try another book from Cathy Yardley? Why or why not?

Sure, I would listen to more of Cathy's writing. She uses an everyday tone of voice that should relate well to most listeners.

Which scene was your favorite?

My biggest takeaway was her suggestion that aspiring writers need to find other writers with roughly the same skill level and attitude as their own, and her reasons for doing so.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

n/a

Any additional comments?

My suggestion for Cathy in response to this is to pen another title explaining exactly how to find like-skilled, like-minded writers.

Not just for Writing!

What made the experience of listening to Write Every Day the most enjoyable?

The best part was that her tips and suggestions for getting more writing done can actually be applied to many areas of life or anything you do creativly.

What other book might you compare Write Every Day to and why?

Not sure. It was good listen, so anything else that falls under that kind of thinking, I guess?

What about Cathy Yardley’s performance did you like?

Her voice is nice but not too soft. She makes you feel like she is telling YOU a story, rather than just reading from her book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Based on the book that inspired this movie"

Any additional comments?

Good listen, short and to the point and very easy to understand. Great for writers or anybody who works from home for a creative company.

Helpful and Motivational

What did you love best about Write Every Day?

This book is for all writers regardless of career level. I felt as if the author was speaking to me personally. Three of the four obstacles really hit home for me. 1. Time and not having enough of it or not managing it well. 2. Energy and not having enough and not managing it well. 3. Process and not being aware of what works for you.

I was impressed with this audio book. The message, suggestions and advice were on POINT. I've even purchased Rock Your Plot.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Write Every Day?

OMGreatness. In the section on support network, I found myself saying "YEP, Yep, and YEP." So agree with the author. Avoid the energy vampires.

Have you listened to any of Cathy Yardley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first Cathy Yardley performance. She was awesome. I'm an avid audible listener. In my humble opinion, she is MUCH better than some of the other narrators. Cathy could moonlight doing voice work. Yes, she was that food.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen in one sitting, however I was taking detail notes so it took me two sittings to complete.

Very helpful

A lot of very good ideas to ponder, put into action and see what the results are. I especially liked the paragraphs about who to let into the circle of friends who would be a support-- not a negative influence.

Great book

I wasn't sure what I would get purchasing this book. I was incredibly surprised by how good this book was to read and the presented ideas. I just recommended this book to an artist friend who has the same complaints as many writers. I think this book goes beyond just "writing advise." I think the suggestions here translate to much of life's endeavors.

I didn't think it was going to make a difference,

but it was part of the Rock Your Writing books that I love, so I bought it. Was I ever wrong. This is a book I'll return to for focus and inspiration when I'm floundering in my writing. The section on fear alone is worth the price of the book. Also, I like that Cathy Yardley reads it. It makes me feel as if I'm talking with a friend. (No, I don't know the author)
