Master the inner game of writing!

Writing is an intensely personal act, yet all writers face similar problems related to focus, procrastination, creativity, and productivity.

This book combines the field-tested practices of successful and productive writers with insights from cognitive science. By understanding how your mental processes affect the work, you can master the inner game of writing.

The Writer's Process is a practical guide to finding your best writing process. Topics include:

  • How to invite your brain to work when you're not actively writing
  • Why writing is like baking bread, with many steps including periods of incubation
  • How to structure your surroundings for each phase of the writing process

concise summary of much research and good techniqu

I own a bunch of writing books and is the author notes in the later chapters it's not so much that all of this is brand-new is that it is concisely presented with the most recent research to explain why these techniques are valid and useful. I found her writing style to be concise Lively and supportive. I think the person reading this has a wonderful voice that reads pretty briskly it is one of the few books I've ever had to turn down to a lower rate on Audible but that's not a huge problem. solid recommendation to buy.

Terrific information

Terrific information on how to balance structure with creativity. The author's vocal performance was good, but the studio quality of the recording did not seem to be of a professional standard.

Brilliant conclusions on other self help books.

Anne Janzer successfully makes helpful conclusions on top of conclusions from other writing self help books.
I've read all of the other books she mentions in this book and her new view on their material are very clever.
So you could call what she does a meta-analysis and she does it very good.
