amazing book

I used Keith's process for my latest romance project. I planned on Sunday, and started writing Monday - but Friday I had a 40k novel start to finish pretty much mapped out bar the edit and review process. This would normally have taken me two months, this got me focussed, and I now know that I can do a great job in a short amount of time if I get myself organized and follow Keith's advice.

I found this guide

The writing sprint technique was a process I could follow and it does get the words down on paper. The book is all about cumulative effect. No-one can write a 100k manuscript in a day, but break that down into a series of writing days and then it becomes very possible.

useful book

Writing is like any habit the more we do it the better we get at it. This gets you pointing in the right direction and focussing on what you should be doing, helping you avoid distractions and sets you out an achievable plan.

interesting

Basically, this should be titled - "how to stop procrastinating for authors." How many of convincing ourselves we have been busy writing when indeed if we were totally honest with ourselves we would have to admit that of the time spent sitting at our desks not a lot of it was spent on the actual task we set out to complete. Plan, and follow the plan, use some of the tips in the book you will get some results.

excellent book

Doesn't take too long to get through this and it has some plain talking, straight forward advice on how to get yourself into that place where you will increase your productivity. Make no mistake there is no simple fix writing is hard work, however, what can be a great deal more painful is sitting in front of a laptop day after day and producing very little. Many of us have fallen into this trap. The book can give you a bit of wake up call and get you back on the path to producing a viable quantity of words in a timescale you will like.

Thank you

How many of us sit and stare at the laptop screen and produce very little and convince ourselves that we’ve actually done okay? We might only have written 500 words, but they were 500 good words. I was pretty much doing this 2 to 3 times a week, however, with Keith’s simple writing sprint process I’ve upped my game and I’ve had some incredible writing days recently. I didn’t want to take time out to fully plan my work – but once I did it made a huge difference and with a solid foundation it was easy to produce a credible amount of work in each session.

highly recommended

Keith is right – if you want to produce regular manuscripts and have a shelf full of books on sale then you need a strategy, and you need to follow a process. Once you grasp this simple process you can increase your productivity quite easily.

Must listen to it

This is a short listen, and it’s got some good strategies. The block method is the one that works for me, and if I obey Keith’s basic rules I’ve found that this will get the pages filled with some quality output on a regular basis.

excellent book

Keith points out all the traps we regularly fall into and is there with a hand to pull you out, clear your desk up for you, hand you a fresh cup of coffee, straighten your notebook out and get you started again. Often this is what we need - a fresh start and a little bit of writing motivation.

Easy to follow

I’ve tried a couple of these books before and to be honest, it’s rubbish. Using a Dictaphone to get 5000 words an hour down just isn’t going to work, not for me anyway. This book had some sensible strategies and helped me to take stock, get my self organised and I am now producing a decent 5000 words a day which I’ve done for a week. I’m blown away with my progress this week. I can now see an end to the project and with Keith’s help I am looking forward to having a completed manuscript in another couple of weeks.

Quadrupled my output.

I struggle to write consistently and progress sometimes feels painfully slow. However this book gave me a framework to use and some sensible and helpful advice. It taken me back to basics and I have deconstructed the novel I am writing working out a time plan and I am genuinely surprised - I've got more down in the last week than I have achieved in the last two months.
