Newton believes “You can write your book in two weeks (or less) if you want to badly enough.”
A good blue print to follow, I struggle with the workflow when writing a book and this book gives me a good set of templates and rules to follow. It says a guide to writing a book in fourteen days and it means fourteen days, you stop and publish it. Something I can understand, too often I have carried on tweaking a book until the book is not what it should be, so this makes the day two chapter the most important for me. This is the chapter that covers the structure of the writing; you write your writing plan, plan your time and sort the tasks that are needed to complete the book. The author shows her knowledge and experience, this gives you some extra tips in overcoming the challenges of writing and publishing. Five stars from me.
This book documents the process the author took in writing her book in two weeks. The author's motive is to encourage budding writers to "just do it". The author stresses the need to have a clear idea of the topic you want to write about and the reason why you want to write about it. Having a clear idea would enable you to visualise the end result and help you produce something of substance. Also determining your target audience is crucial to being able to actually write the book in 2 weeks. The author states that many people actually struggle to write a book because they have too many ideas running around in their heads,. Without proper planning and structure, they will find it difficult to move forward. This book provides the reader with relevant questions they need to ask themselves as they prepare to start writing their book. I found it useful because it reminds the reader of very vital issues that need to be addressed. For instance the 6 prompts of writing, why editing and reviewing is necessary, etc. The book also addresses the biggest excuse people have for not writing which is time. Within this book there are many ideas on how to overcome this obstacle, you will also find important action points at the end of each chapter. A great book which I found very useful. I highly recommend this book.
