The Writing Productivity Bundle contains three books: Write Better, Faster; The 8-Minute Writing Habit; and Dictate Your Book.
In 2012, fiction author Monica Leonelle made a life-changing decision to learn to write faster. Through months of trial-and-error, hundreds of hours of experimentation, and dozens of manuscripts, she tweaked and honed until she could easily write 10,000 words in a day, at speeds over 3500+ words per hour!
She shares all her insights, secrets, hacks, and data in this tome dedicated to improving your writing speeds, skyrocketing your monthly word count, and publishing more books. You'll learn:
For serious authors, both beginner and advanced, who want to improve their output this year!

There is some great and useful information in all 3 of the books included in this set. However, the books are about twice as long as they need to be and audio is not really the best format for the material. I recommend buying the ebooks instead.
No, I have read many books in this genre and will continue to, but not all of them are right for audio.
The narrator was fine.
Any writer who wants to learn to write faster and more efficiently will find useful information here, but OMG you have to wade through a lot of talk to get to it!
If the author had actually edited this script for audio instead of just having the book read (including reading all the many URLs, an unbearably long section of outlining on a tedious story, and a long appendix), this could have been a good listen.
Having taken 9 years to publish my first novel (Full Speed), I'm excited by the idea of writing faster and Monica Leonelle gave me a tonne of practical - and easy-to-implement - ideas that should speed things up for me. I've already implemented her ideas on dictation - something that has both upped my output and, just as importantly, helped me get away (at least for solid chunks of time) from the computer screen.
One thing that is different about The Writing Productivity Bundle is that it is very personal. Monica Leonelle takes you through the day-to-day ups and downs of her writing journey, sharing with you the things that both worked and didn't work for her. Since I've wrestled with many of the challenges that confronted her, I found this both encouraging and inspiring. In fact, it has motivated me to give even more time and love to my writing career.
If you are after books on writing technique (i.e. how to craft a better sentence) then this bundle is not for you. If you want to learn to increase your writing output and make a living from writing, then you'll find it extremely practical.
This complete set of books will give you actionable steps to improve your overall writing productivity. I especially enjoyed the author's openness about her various trials and errors, and a thorough explanation of how she corrected her pain points. I've used dictation for a few years, but only for notes and outlines. I'll try dictating scenes for my next story. I believe these books are targeted to genre authors who wish to produce more for the independent book market, but there's no reason a traditionally published author can't take advantage of the many, many productivity hacks.
Monica gives great tips that get you writing fast. My first day of implementing her 8x8 challenge I wrote over 3,000 words. Furthermore her writing process helped me identify gaps in my workflow. Particularly how and when to use dictation for my fiction. Her advise is easy to follow and even easier to implement. I highly recommend this book for any authors struggling with word count or process.
