A great inspiration for writing my first book. It's not a fiction novel that I'm writing, but on a subject that I'm only too familiar with and how I started my road to recovery after many years of a particular type of abuse. It's very clear that I can use many, if not all, of the strategies that you mention in your book. Thanks again.
The author spends almost a third of the book suggesting things for you to eat. Yes, that's right. If you want suggestions for what to eat, you'll love this book. Nevermind that we bought the book because we wanted to read about writing. Author takes time to tell you the food suggestions are not filler material because she knows that's exactly what it is. The audio book is only 45 minutes long and about 12 minutes of it is naming brands of food you should eat on your 3-day novel-writing marathon. Yes she names name brands. Hm, I wonder if those companies are paying her for advertising for them.
The author also suggests you get someone to check on you during the three days to make sure you're eating and doing okay. Seriously? She suggests you pay for this person's gas. Really?
There is very little value if any in this audio book. It doesn't cost much but it's still a waste of money.
What I liked best was the narrator. Kristi Burns had a good voice and no annoying verbal twitches. She read the material in a lively manner that made you feel like you were listening to a friend chat. I would love to hear her read more books.
Laura Roberts came across as likeable & someone who would be fun in a writing group. She presented her material well, but there wasn't much to the book. It was more like an extended magazine article than a book. There was also rather a lot of talk about food in the book that felt more like filler to pad the book length. The author provided writing tips that might be helpful to a novice writer. However, if you read a lot of writing books, you won't find anything new in this book.
If you are looking for a writing help book that goes into more detail and presents more material, I would recommend writing guides by Cathy Yardley, Holly Lisle, Anne Lamott, James Scott Bell, and Chuck Wendig.
