Would you listen to The 8-Minute Writing Habit again? Why?

I actually listened to the first part of the 8-Minute Writing Habit TWICE. I've been a published writer for 40 years (yep, 40!) and have never (no, never!) experienced writer's block. However, I still found Ms. Leonelle's soul-searching narrative revealing even at my stage of the word game. I would definitely listen to Part One again; the other two parts, not so much. Though Part Two and Part Three offered some interesting insights, I discovered no "novel" ideas in the sections.

What other book might you compare The 8-Minute Writing Habit to and why?

Chapter After Chapter: Discover the Dedication & Focus You Need to Write the Book of Your Dreams, Heather Sellers (Author)

A Writer's Time: Making the Time to Write
Kenneth Atchity (Author)

And, the many other books out there that teach the systematic approach to time management BEFORE teaching the writing craft itself!

Which scene was your favorite?

Again, I found the first part of The 8-Minute Writing Habit invaluable.

What did you learn from The 8-Minute Writing Habit that you would use in your daily life?

I tend to be too regimented and have incorporated Ms. Leonelle's "Plan C" into my life; do the minimal amount required to check the to-do item off your list. This idea eases my stress; good stuff.
