These three quotes from the book were the key takeaways for me:
1. "Create small pieces of work, and then use them to scale into larger projects."
2. "Your goal is to create momentum by creating a writing habit where you always reach the finish line."
3. "Force yourself to outline or plot your book before you begin writing. Refuse to wing it any longer."
Those three habits alone will give me a great start towards hitting my goals.
Final takeaway: Writing Habit Mastery has a lot of ideas to help you write more consistently, and to overcome writers block. My only issue with the book is it seems to come across a little to preachy for me. I feel like I'm being lectured to at several points, rather than just being given information I can work with.
Read the book, see what you think? Overall, it will be a good help for anyone.
Was I wrong! I was up till late last night reading it, and every single page has something useful on it. One of my favorites includes the part where Scott talks about the Pomodoro technique and the useful software links that follow. Other than this the part about scheduling yourself and tracking your time are all very useful.
He also mentions five good habits that every writer must have and one of these is how to overcome writer's block, something that every budding writer dreads. In that regard, a very useful tip that I picked up from this book is that you need to approach the task of writing as just that: a task that needs to be done, and you will eventually get into the groove.
Budding authors, it's definitely worth your while to read this!
The book is basically a rehash of the same advise that appears in hundreds of writers guides but Scott uses numbers and bullet points to cut the information to a minimum. Unfortunately, he shamelessly pitches his other "how-to" guides throughout the text but this should not deter a reader who's looking for a solid set of rules to kick start their writing career.
Anyone old enough to remember the aftershave commercial where somebody slapped a guy and he said "Thanks, I needed that"? This book is like that!
