    "Very helpful for an author who has just started out."

    I felt the concepts were easy to follow and made applying them doable. I am always hesitant when listening to a self help book because really I feel it is the authors point of view and everyone processes information differently. This book exceeded my expectations because it has made me feel empowered to move to the next step. And stop being a "seater". I am ready to have a plan and go forward. I would recommend this book for any and all because there is very useful information that can help you improve not just in writing but everywhere.

    "Great motivation book with great tips on writing"

    Love this short and to the point book on learning ways to start writing. I got the kindle version along with the audible companion. This book is well written, and to the point. I recommend this to anyone with writers block or a fear of writing.

    "Excellent"

    Full of BFOs... Blinding flashes of the obvious. Definitely worth a few dollars and the attention to listen a few times if you truly seek the goal.

    Would love to hear a slight variation on this for bloggers. The emphasis seems to be on writing fiction. Much of this could apply to non-fiction as well.

    "Practical Advice with Inspiration & Encouragment"
    Any additional comments?

    I had read this book when it first came out, but when I saw the audio version, I snapped it up. I'm glad I did. I think I got something different from listening to it, and it was a nice reminder of all that I'd read before.

    This book is filled with practical advice as well as encouragement. I also find it to be inspirational, but not in a woo woo way. It's more that I can now see the steps I can take to improve my writing in many different ways and that is both inspiring and encouraging.

    I think the audiobook is well worth a listen. If you haven't already read the book, it comes with exercises at the end of every chapter, though these are also listed at the end of the book as well. The narrator reads these out, but this audiobook does not appear to come with a PDF list of the exercises. Even so, they are simple enough, so I don't think that would be a serious problem if you don't already have the Kindle version or the paperback.

    "What storytellers who want to write faster need."

    I write pretty fast but I have a feeling this will help me get much faster. If you're a writer you should check it out too.

    "The Best Writing Book Out There!"
    Where does 5,000 Words Per Hour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, but would have preferred Ryan Burke perform it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chris Fox, the only character.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, but I prefer Ryan Burke.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want to finish my first novel, which I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't recommend this enough!

    "Highly recommended"

    This is a concise, no nonsense book that doesn't just lay out the work that needs to be done but also provides excellent direction on how to do it.

    "Prepare to be changed"

    Great book, I didn't think it was possible but with Chris's help I have increased my word count considerably. I downloaded the app and it is amazing, in that it actually makes me write. I thoroughly recommend this book.

    Now Chris needs to write a book on the creative process and setting out the storyline, using the same type of approach - that would be brilliant.

    Also, help with editing in the same style as the 5000 word book. Money well spent
