Reading a Book: Writing in Overdrive

UPDATE: This was an excellent book. Very inspiring! It’s on Kindle. (That’s where I got my copy.)

I’m reading a book! No, not another fiction book (and yes, I’m getting a bit behind in my “read 60 more books this year” challenge) but a book that I’m hoping will get my creative brain kicked back into gear. I’m going on nearly two weeks of no writing here and it’s driving me batty. I have no idea why I’m still having trouble.

Writing on multiple stories has been such a great help to my daily word counts, but it hasn’t been much help at all to keep me writing consistently.

Anyway, Writing in Overdrive: Write Faster, Write Freely, Write Brilliantly by Jim Denney isn’t directly related to my issues, but it’s something to excite me regardless, because it’s about writing faster … and I think you know the idea of writing faster excites me.

I bought the book before I’d even finished the sample—the opening was that good—or my need is that desperate. I’ll know when I’m done.

Oh, and I started a new rule today. No going to bed before I get 1,000 words written. I’m going to have to get started on that soon since I don’t have any words done today.

Even though I have 4 books going.

That I love.

That I keep getting ideas for.

Ugh. I definitely have a problem. I wish I knew how to solve it.

Anyway, Writing in Overdrive is waiting, so I’m outta here…
