This book was well-written and laid out nicely. The author gives simple instructions about how to organize the different aspects of being an author and increasing productivity. I'm trying to streamline my own writing projects, so this book was perfect for me. She also touches on efficient ways to use social media. Sarah provides a link to her site with downloads of worksheets. Highly recommended for writers struggling with organization.

Адекватная книга про то, как организовывать писательский труд (с упором на фикшн): без воды, но и без находок. Если вы впервые задумались о том, как работать более осмысленно, читай обязательно, иначе смело пропускайте.

Excellent book with an upbeat and informative tone. I put it down for a while, and when I came back I realized my writing life/routines had entirely changed because of the tips in this book. I can't recommend it enough for anyone who wants to get serious about writing.

Useful tips

It is a brief and practical books helping writer to conduct their writing of story in a disciplinary way. Very useful tips could be found anywhere in the book.

Inspiring and simple.

This author takes the time to break down processes that may seem like common sense, but that we seldom think about. She actually helps readers to fix issues they didn't realize they have. This book helps readers to utilize the tools they are already using in a more efficient and streamlined way. I would recommend.

Some good simple tips for using time efficiently. They range from day-to-day tasks (e.g. keyboard shortcuts) to setting yourself up for the longer term (e.g. additional details to keep in your Scrivener projects). For me, some (like setting a timer) are more useful for getting other things done so I can get to the writing.

A decent book that went way too far off topic from what I needed or expected. Great for those who want to spend just as much time reading about formatting, publishing, and marketing as they do writing. But just not what I was looking for or expected!
Emma Sea
Yep, worth my time reading it. I got some useful tips about file management, formatting multi-book sets in Scrivener, marketing etc. I appreciate that all the checklists/worksheets are collected together in the appendices.
