Info buried in an endless commercial for author

NOT for pantsers. There are good tidbits buried in this and probably easier to cherry pick in the print version than listening to the interminable excerpts from the author's books. When I realized how much of the last part of the book was going to be an appendix containing her diary of her writing process verbatim, I turned it off and walked away.

The biggest takeaway I got from this is how boring it is listening to long lists and interminable rewrites of classics. Imagine a writing book mixed with infomercials for the author and you've got this. Even a nag by the author how her methods are still valid even if you don't like her writing. Perhaps if you're a plotter. I simply couldn't stand any more.

Sure glad I picked it up on sale as I still feel I overspent. If you must, grab the print version.

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 way, this will be way too repetitive and I'll zone out. But once I started 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!!!
