Who should not buy this book: Anyone who is looking for specific methodologies for writing fast and writing well. (If this describes you, save your $5 and skip to the end of my review for a Cliff Notes summary of this book.)
I've heard great things about the author's resources, blog, and books for writers. Based on reputation alone, I purchased this book and read through it in about 45 minutes... and was unimpressed.
Granted, what the author does (as he describes with minimal detail) in this book is quite the feat of writing, and it's interesting to read along as he describes a typical day in the prolific writer's life (over, and over, and over again). The problem I have with this is not the content of the book itself, nor do I have a problem with the fact that the author spends the entire book journaling about taking naps and petting his cat.
In fact, if this book were titled "Ten Days In The Life Of A Prolific Author" or "How To Keep Track Of Your Word Count" I'd be fine with that, and would likely have given this book a 5-star review. However, the book is titled "How To Write A Novel In Ten Days", and that influenced my expectations quite a bit.
Unfortunately, at no time in this book does the author give you anything even closely related to advice on HOW to write; instead, the book merely serves as a study in "how much" to write each day to finish a novel in ten days. Which, quite frankly, anyone with a third-grade education could figure out on their own.
I'm sure the author is a fine writer, and that he is as prolific as the title and his bio suggest. However, if you're going to publish a book that purports to teach a person how to write a full-length novel in ten days, you'd damned sure better deliver on your promise. Trying to pass off your personal journal as a manual on how to write a good novel fast just ain't gonna cut it.
That being said, there were a few gems in the book, and if you're a pantser (or think you are) then you'll probably find this book to be worth $5. But if you're a new or inexperienced writer looking for a treatise on specific methodologies for writing fast and writing well, you're bound to be sadly disappointed with this work.
So, let me give you the Reader's Digest version of this book: writer's write, and butt-in-chair for 7,000 words a day is the way to write a 70,000 word novel in ten days.
It is actually interesting, to some extent, which I why I marked it a 3.
Probably should have been titled, "Watch Me Write a Novel in 10 Days."
Would have actually had more benefit if the blog comments had been distributed in the book. The author kept referring to them, saying how important it was to review them, but I never heard any comment details.
The narrator was pretty good.
