Because the type of writing that I do is more technical than creative, I was surprised as to how relevant this book was to my projects. I was relieved that I've been doing many things right for the past 30 years (my mentors trained me well), and delighted to find helpful ideas for new ways of approaching my writing.
This is an especially terrific resource for the writer who suffers from brain block, the naïve writer, the disorganized writer, and the too-busy-to-write writer. And if you are a successful writer with no problems getting your brilliant ideas and beautiful words set to paper (or computer document), it's still worth a read just so you can gloat that you had it right all along.
He focuses on method and tools, including notebooks and cards. While you might not use every tip, you will find new ways of looking at things which is particularly of value when you get stuck. If you follow his process, you are far more likely not to get stuck, whether it is simply not knowing the next step, or finding that you have written yourself into a corner.
It is clear he himself uses these techniques and have proven them out. The one on dealing with a blank screen (or piece of paper) is particularly apt. No, I won't tell you - you have to read the book. Calendar tips are great too. And as a creativity coach, I appreciate the mention of using a coach. If for no other reason, coaches are great at keeping you on track.
If you want to write a book and can't get started or simply are stuck, get this book now and get yourself moving again.
