Do you want to write more novels? Maybe you're having trouble finding time to write in a busy, jam-packed week.
Maybe you're exhausted when you do manage to carve out some time to write.
Or maybe, when you’ve got the time and energy, you either waste time and then wonder where the day went… or you face a blank page, unable to type “anything decent.”
Pinpoint what’s stopping you - and find real solutions.
Write Every Day is specifically geared for fiction authors who are juggling busy home lives, work lives, and the new pressures to “build a platform” while simultaneously producing more books.
Instead of rote advice (i.e. “just get your butt in the chair and write”) it gives clear instructions for zeroing in on what’s really preventing you from writing, and then offers a selection of simple suggested solutions to carve out more time, get more focus, and gently dissolve writer’s block.
Similar to other books in the Rock Your Writing series, Write Every Day takes a wealth of resource material and distills it down into one clear, helpful approach.

I mostly enjoyed the author's enthusiasm and lighthearted delivery. The text moved along quickly enough to not be boring.
Sure, I would listen to more of Cathy's writing. She uses an everyday tone of voice that should relate well to most listeners.
My biggest takeaway was her suggestion that aspiring writers need to find other writers with roughly the same skill level and attitude as their own, and her reasons for doing so.
My suggestion for Cathy in response to this is to pen another title explaining exactly how to find like-skilled, like-minded writers.
Nothing I didn't know, but it becomes validated and reinforced hearing it from a practitioner of the advice. I'm glad it wasn't any longer so I could go and listen again without wading through lot of filler material. Thank you!
The best part was that her tips and suggestions for getting more writing done can actually be applied to many areas of life or anything you do creativly.
Not sure. It was good listen, so anything else that falls under that kind of thinking, I guess?
Her voice is nice but not too soft. She makes you feel like she is telling YOU a story, rather than just reading from her book.
"Based on the book that inspired this movie"
Good listen, short and to the point and very easy to understand. Great for writers or anybody who works from home for a creative company.
A lot of very good ideas to ponder, put into action and see what the results are. I especially liked the paragraphs about who to let into the circle of friends who would be a support-- not a negative influence.
"Some Useful Tips"
The book was broken down into sections about different problems that can strike writers such as fear, lack of time, lack of opportunity, and addressed each one by relating to the reader and then by suggesting various remedies.
This helped me, as someone who likes to write for leisure, but would like to take it further, to identify why I don’t write more and how I can start writing more.
There were some tips in there about getting words on the page too.
There are no characters in this book, it is a self-help book.
She read her own work very well.
I was not moved by this book, as it isn't a story as such, but I did find that Cathy was able to make all the situations she talks about relateable to me.
I liked this book and found it useful. I may listen to it again to recap on what she said, so it was definitely worth the money I paid for it.
