I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I awaited this book with eager anticipation, and when I got it in the mail today I could not wait to read it.

I found this book to be encouraging, inspirational, and with good sound advice. I enjoyed the questions. They really make you think about staying organized and on task. A super helpful read for the writer struggling to finish their book, but also helpful for those who are more organized.
