Very helpful for an author who has just started out.

I felt the concepts were easy to follow and made applying them doable. I am always hesitant when listening to a self help book because really I feel it is the authors point of view and everyone processes information differently. This book exceeded my expectations because it has made me feel empowered to move to the next step. And stop being a "seater". I am ready to have a plan and go forward. I would recommend this book for any and all because there is very useful information that can help you improve not just in writing but everywhere.

Great motivation book with great tips on writing

Love this short and to the point book on learning ways to start writing. I got the kindle version along with the audible companion. This book is well written, and to the point. I recommend this to anyone with writers block or a fear of writing.

Highly recommended

This is a concise, no nonsense book that doesn't just lay out the work that needs to be done but also provides excellent direction on how to do it.

Prepare to be changed

Great book, I didn't think it was possible but with Chris's help I have increased my word count considerably. I downloaded the app and it is amazing, in that it actually makes me write. I thoroughly recommend this book.

Now Chris needs to write a book on the creative process and setting out the storyline, using the same type of approach - that would be brilliant.

Also, help with editing in the same style as the 5000 word book. Money well spent
