Publisher's Summary

"Have you ever wanted to double your daily word counts? Do you feel like you're crawling through your story, struggling for each paragraph? Would you like to get more words every day without increasing the time you spend writing or sacrificing quality? It's not impossible; it's not even that hard. This is the story of how, with a few simple changes, I boosted my daily writing from 2,000 words to over 10k a day and how you can, too."

Expanding on the author's highly successful process for doubling daily word counts, this audiobook - a combination of reworked blog posts and new material - offers practical writing advice for anyone who's ever longed to increase their daily writing output. In addition to updated information for Rachel's popular 2k to 10k writing efficiency process, five-step plotting method, and easy editing tips, this new book includes chapters on creating characters that write their own stories, story structure, and learning to love your daily writing. Full of easy-to-follow, practical advice from a commercial author who doesn't eat if she doesn't produce good books on a regular basis, 2K to 10K focuses on not just writing faster but writing better and having more fun while you do it.

This revised edition includes updates and corrections for all chapters!

Fantastic tips and excellent writing advice!

If you could sum up 2K to 10K in three words, what would they be?

Informative, Relatable, Helpful

What was one of the most memorable moments of 2K to 10K?

I love how easy it was to relate to the author and how clear and understandable the information is. I found the tips very helpful.

What about Arial Burnz’s performance did you like?

The narrative voice was clear and relatable.

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

Found the information provided extremely helpful.

Any additional comments?

Any author who is looking for a writing boost at any point in their career would enjoy this audio book. I was in a bit of a writing slump and it got me back on course immediately.

Practical, down-to-earth. Just buy it.

If you are an aspiring writer and you are wondering whether to buy this book, then hop off the fence and buy it. It's totally worth your time and money.

The book is practical, down-to-earth and super-encouraging. It's got lots of specific tips about specific problems that writers run into.

Arial Burnz does a great job with the narration.

I liked it

This book was a nice little boost to my motivation for writing. The reviews I read on Amazon said that the pointers offered in this book were obvious, but that doesn't make them any less true. I needed something that hit me in the right spot and this book did it. I have been struggling to get my creative juices flowing for a while now and this worked to get me back to filling the blank pages for my story. Thanks Rachel. I really enjoyed it.

Could You Be Writing Faster?

If you're an author who hasn't spent a lot of time analyzing your writing practice, this is a must-read. Rachel Aaron takes you through her own process, where she's discovered how to write better and faster.

She talks about her approach, and gives helpful advice on plotting and editing. I know some writers won't agree with everything she says. But this is what works for her, and learning what others do can only be helpful.

I've gotten a lot out of this book, and that's something that will help me for years to come.

Valuable read for any author

I am a non-fiction writer, and I still got tons of value from this book, even though it focuses primarily on fiction.

Common Sense

Basically preparation is the key to writing more. Some helpful information for new writers. Experienced writers may find the chapters about outlining scenes and knowing what you're going to write before you sit down to do it helpful
A pantser would not benefit from this book at all.

Good tips, but not as easy to implement

Worth a listen. I've implemented some of the tips given, but not even close to 10k.

great info!

I was unsure what to expect, honestly thought it was going to be a sales ploy. But I found a lot of great info that I have already started to use. Thanks for taking the time to share your writing knowledge with us.

If you love simplicity in steps

I am so thankful I chose this book in preparation for writing my first novel - it is exactly what I needed to set myself up for success. While I have read other books that were perhaps more comprehensive, when you're starting out, 'less is more', so I especially love the simplicity and clear, logical steps that pave the way to not only writing more in one sitting, but also provide an easy to follow process for planning/outlining and even editing your novel. I could not recommend this book enough!
