Publisher's Summary

Do you struggle to write every day? Many people dream of becoming a successful author, but can't *find* the time to write. The truth is this: Great writers don't have more time than you do. They make time to write. Not only do they make time, they also follow specific routines that help them avoid writer's block altogether.

By developing the "writing habit" you'll have the confidence to sit down in front of a computer every day, knowing the words will come.

Your Goal:: Write 2,000 Words a Day - Every Day!
One of the key factors to effectively developing any habit is choosing a specific, measurable goal. So if you want to become a prolific writer, then you'll need to choose a specific word count for each day. While I *suggest* 2,000 words as a goal, you can pick any number that fits in with your busy schedule. You might choose 500 or 1,000 words a day. Or, you might have more time than I do (or write faster than I do) and choose to write 3,000 or 10,000 words each day. The important thing is to establish a daily word count goal and then stick to it.

In Writing Habit Mastery you'll learn how to incorporate writing into your daily routine. What you'll get is a strategy and list of tools that will help you develop a sustainable writing habit and demolish writer's block.

    "Quick and Effective Tips"

    There is nothing in-depth here, but that doesn't mean it isn't valuable. If you - as the writer - are willing to do what it is necessary to be a writer, then this collection of down and dirty tips is designed to maximize productivity and minimize procrastination. As with anything like this, it's up to you to implement them, but based on the common sense nature of the author's advice, anyone serious about the idea will find an effective tool kit here.

    "Keep Pen and Paper close!"
    Any additional comments?

    This audio book was very short but jammed pack with information. I listened to it from my desk with a pen and paper to write it all down. I will definitely be reading this again and ordering more books by SJ Scott!

    If you want more great info from this author, he has a blog. I read a post about breaking bad habits that was amazing! Great stuff!

    "Be a writer! Get rich quick! Ask me how!"
    Any additional comments?

    Anyone can tell you, "every day commit to sitting down and don't get up until you've typed x amount of words", but I was hoping for a discussion of why it's hard to write, emotionally. Or psychologically. That is something I would find truly helpful. Instead this book reads like a non-creative person's list of suggestions that are pragmatic and process-based, which some people may be looking for, but do not seem to be founded on an understanding of actual roadblocks I know I for one face. I'm sure someone might find some of these ideas useful. As for me I have no intention of doing things like imposing metrics upon myself of how much I have written in a given period per day.To me this book feels like a sales pitch on how you - yes you, Joe Nobody! - can get rich chasing your dream of being a writer. It makes me feel like the profession is going through a Wild West period with ebooks and self-publishing. This book feels a bit sensational and hoakey. But who knows, maybe it will help other people.

    "Profoundly UNREMARKABLE"

    The fact that it's essentially just a White Paper, is one thing; the fact that the Ideas and Information are common sensical and unoriginal, at their best, and inaccurate or objectively wrong and misleading, regarding other approaches, eg "The ultimate litmus test for judging the quality of your writing is the amount of people willing to pay for it."
    That's a fine litmus test, if that's what you believe, but it is unequivocally Not the "ultimate litmus test for good writing."

    "Great work!"

    SJ Scott is a baller! Short, direct to the point books...this is like the 10th SJ Scott I've read this year.
    I am one of the best-selling writers in Amazon Brazil and I owe it to SJ all he thought me about habits, especially how to master the 2K words a day habit.

    "Just what I was looking for to get me moving"
    If you could sum up Writing Habit Mastery in three words, what would they be?

    Great simple tips


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Writing Habit Mastery?

    The concepts of changing some beliefs to just get over some of the simple fears that stop you writing.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Stone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listen to 2 of Matt Stones other audio books. This is a good flowing read and easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Find your writing Flow.


    Any additional comments?

    I do a lot of reading, audio based and S.J. Scott's works are simple to comprehend, have a great flow, and have helped reinforce many of my current habits whilst providing insights to creative further expansion through useful tips and perspectives.

    "Good usable advice"

    There's a lot of writing books out there that attempt to do what this book does. But Mr. Scott has a way of presenting things in a no nonsense manner that cuts through the fluff and just gives you good actionable ideas.

    "Includes practical, actionable information."

    Good, practical, actionable information. If writing is important to you then you will find some good tips on turning your writing into a daily habit.

    You'll also find some good insights into a process to take your writing and turn it into a book, ebook, screenplay, etc.

    I enjoyed this.

    Good narration too.
