My Thoughts: I posted my initial reaction to this book on Goodreads, as soon as I finished it.
"Excellent resource. I particularly found the chapters on organization & time management to be most informative. I have seen both Holly Black (author) and Charlie McDonnell (youtuber/writer) talk about and use the same techniques mentioned in this book. It was nice to see them a little more in depth than the 2 second glance I’d seen before. Great inspiration to newbies and authors who may have "stalled"."
I still agree with that statement. I found the book “casually” written which made it easy to follow. It didn’t read like a “How To” book. It more read like a “Hey, this is how I get through it” letter. Its not a guide on grammar, formatting, or anything “technical”within the writing. It simply takes you step by step from getting your story idea out of your head and into a finished product.
I read this in one afternoon, while taking notes on the side. At the end I felt empowered and like I could actually get my own book ideas finally written.
In Conclusion: Excellent resource for new or up and coming authors. This book really does contain simple techniques to help take that book from initial idea to completed project.
