I found the tips for moving forward with projects already in process especially helpful. I needed the techniques to help me keep motivated and the goal sheets for getting and keeping on track.
"First Draft in 30 Days" offers flexible potential for seasoned and beginning writers. I consider this another important working tool for my writing.
I can't say enough good things about this book. I can now figure out where my issues are in each MS, prop up the middles and get them cohesive. While I may have been able to eventually get published with out the help of these books, I don't think it would have happened any time soon.
At first glance, her method looks a bit complicated. But after reading the book all the way through, and starting at the beginning, It is rather very simple.
There are some things I use (99%) while I discard the items that don't work for me.
As for typing in the worksheets into Word myself, It took me about a half an hour. I typed them up once(customized to my tastes), as master copies, and now I'll be able to use them for any book I decide to write.
