Excellent: A masterclass in productivity

What made the experience of listening to Write Better, Faster the most enjoyable?

I read the print version of W.B.F. at the very beginning of my novel adventure. At the time I was hungry for a process, any process and was blissfully inspired that Monica provided such clear, thorough and above all, seemingly PRACTICAL advise. I loved her "this is what worked for me..." approach; and that she went a step further to "no, seriously THIS IS WHAT I DID" followed by data and details and breakdowns and real world samples. It was an inspiration. The audio version is, dare I say, almost a better experience because, in this era of the podcast (so happy Monica is finally launching her own!) I don't know...somehow HEARING this stuff sinks in in a way that feels more authentic, if you catch my drift? I don't know if I'm saying this right but it almost feels like I'm taking a class and listening to the tips hits my brain in a different way. It's 9 hours of audio and it definitely passes the "long run with headphones" test. The hard copy is a great resource and it's something that I'll return to as a reference, the audio version was a fantastic experience.


What did you like best about this story?

Ironically what I like best is the stuff I initially thought, "I don't know if I'm going to like this"....the unit where Monica shows how she goes from outline to beats to writing using her own book as an example. I thought...no way, this will be way too repetitive and I'll zone out. But once I started listening....it just works. you get the bare bones, then the expanded version and then the final version and after about three full examples, it really crystallizes as...YES this is how the creative brain works. it was very illuminating. painting a picture in your head as to how to really break things out...AND really drives home the point of starting with the skeleton and working through the process until you have cracked the code.


What about Cindy Piller’s performance did you like?

This is one of the better non-fiction audiobooks that I have listened to. Her voice is crisp, pleasant and soothing but not in a put you to sleep kinda way. excellent diction, great breath control (never noticed...probably a testament to the editing as well) and above all, able to get the performance of Monica's humor and delivery in a way that I imagined Monica probably sounds talking about it.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of the tips an suggestions in this book are golden.


Any additional comments?

I highly recommend!!!

Monica Leonelle, my self-pub mentor

Monica Leonelle is my self publishing mentor. No, I’ve never met her, or even spoken with her, but her books are the backbone of my knowledge base on operating a business as an indy author. Unlike a lot of the books on self publishing out there, Monica’s books are packed full of actionable information. There’s no padding or fluff here. Not a single word of it. This book is all vital, take-it-to-the-bank advice on writing and advancing your business. The production quality here is top-notch and professional, and I hope her other books come out in audio soon. If you’re serious about a career as an author, Monica Leonelle’s Write Better Faster should be the first book you buy. You won’t need much more. I simply cannot recommend it highly enough. An enjoyable read that left me feeling empowered as a writer and entrepreneur.
