This is a short ebook for writing motivation. Definitely, there's a lot of helpful information, not the least of which was the suggestion to write for at least eight minutes each day. This makes perfect sense since the hardest part of writing is getting started. Monica Leonelle did some research to back up her suggestions and presented the information in a well-organized way. The book is an easy read and the suggestions are easy to implement.After getting a comment about this, I am editing to ad [...]
4.5! I recommended this book to a friend because I was enjoying another book by Leonelle and thought this one sounded right up her alley. Then, having recommended it, I thought I should read it -- and I'm really glad I did. While I currently have a really good writing habit, this is not always the case, and I actually wish I'd had this book in January. That said, the first chapter which examined all the fears and stresses that might make it hard for a writer to write and set out plans for dealin [...]
I liked the title and the premise of the book. This is my first book by this author and I will read more of her work. I felt inspired to start writing today regardless of the fact that I'm working 16 hour days and don't have a lot of time to dedicate. Thinking of writing 2k a day for me is unrealistic at this time but I think I can spare 8 minutes.
The 8-Minute Writing HabitThis is a quick read. It's an honest, roll up your sleeves and get to work book for writers. The concept of taking your writing habits to a more productive and consistent level. Fun.
Insanely helpfulThis book was a quick and helpful read. I was intrigued by the 8 minute writing challenge but was pleasantly surprised by tons more helpful information in the beginning of the book. I'm talking about the section on author blocks. These tips were eye-opening for me and will be for other writers as well. I think this is a great book for writers trying to squeeze writing in throughout a hectic day and who might not be sure why writing is not so easy for some reason. Recommended writ [...]
Short & sweet - perfect for the writer who wants to write but life (jobs, family whatever) keeping interfering. I just started the 8-minute exercise (write for a timed 8 minutes, first thing in the morning) and am already hooked! I average about 286 words in 8 minutes x 7 days a week = 2,002 words a week, which will work itself out as 8,008 a month and 96,096 after a year. Great examples given and explaining the 'why' to her points. If you've got 8 minutes a day, you've got your first draft [...]

I am a sucker for self help writing books--- for the price you pay this is a good one.She covers things we already know, but I like her system, it makes sense to me. 8 minutes. It's something I'm trying to work on now.I say if you are interested get a sample on and see if works for you--don't take my word for it. But I've liked her other books as well.
This book took a lot of stress off my shoulders --- just for that, it's probably a better book than most of my collection of writing books put together. Because at the end of the day, only writing makes you a better writer, and anything that encourages you to just WRITE is gold.
A detailed approach to getting a writing habit started.
Well written with some good advice. More than anything it motivated me to write more, which is what I needed!
I very much liked this book about writing. It’s simple and explains its tips very well. I read the first chapter and was astonished. Monica Leonelle had described me as if she knew me personally. Which she doesn’t.Monica Leonelle wants to help writers build up a habit that helps them in their career. This very educational book helps people like me to get started writing. Or so I hoped. What’s good is that there are tips and tricks in there. Read the full review at my blog.
Excelente sacudida para fazer seu desejo de escrita sair do desejo e "pegar no tranco". Como toda boa autoajuda norte-americana, parte significativa do texto traz a autora contando suas experiências como ferramenta motivacional. Depois de terminar, dá pra destilar o texto numa tabela ou resumo em tópicos, e usar isso como guia para manter a prática no dia a dia. Investimento excelente para quem quer vencer as desculpas que usa para nunca escrever.
Useful, not life-changing book. I found the sections on taking your writing mobile, the method of descent to work around writer's block, and the specificity of the 8 day challenge all to be helpful and empowering. It also felt too strongly self-promoting.
The gist is simple: Written little and often. A quick read with some practicalities.
Quick read with excellent tips.Title of review says it all. I highly recommend it if you are struggling with writer's block and finding the time to write.
Shorter version of the longer work that I've already read. Still has good ideas for upping your productivity as a writer.
Some good ideas presented here on how to sit for some time every day to write. I could write a nice 500 word notes on this book. Pretty useful info. Recommend reading for beginners.
As a wanna-be writer with about five works-in-progress, a half-dozen more ideas I haven't even started on yet, and five million reasons why I can't seem to make the time to write, I was eager for a quick read that could help me focus my writing practice, and this book is definitely that. The author's breakdown of common writing blocks and how to get through them was concise, insightful, and very helpful, and I liked the idea and principles behind her "8x8" challenge. I also really liked that she [...]
Yet another gift with the goodriter sign-up; a boxed set of three of Monica’s works. A download with a 50 piece bundle from Goodriter - a site for writersgoodriter/And yes, it’s meant to be spelt like that.She talks of how you can have a plan that you fail to tick off on your to do list, and that for those disaster days, you need a plan B (slightly less) and a plan C for Catastrophe days. This image totally fits w Monica’s plan C idea. If I do nothing else, I manage to read every day. Some [...]
Have found this to be very useful, the 8 minute sessions have slotted in nicely and are working great on my lunch break without eating up to much time. More often than not I'm fitting in at least 2 sessions a day. I'm averaging about 305 words a session and after reading Monica's levels, I realised my first drafts are more of a sketch so it's taken a huge amount of pressure off myself to get everything perfect right away. I can just let the words flow and the story go where it wants to.She gives [...]
This book wasn't as helpful for me as I'd hoped, and I ended up skimming most of it. It would, however, be fantastic for beginning/frustrated writers who aren't getting any words in and need to figure out a way to get started or re-started. I'm not taking any stars off for that, of course. The book not being what I needed isn't the author's fault, and I'll be checking out her other book that sounds more like what I need. I wish it had focused a little more on what the title implied it was about [...]
Great for regular people who add writing to their life. This book gives great tips in how to keep writing from being the first thing dropped when life commitments press into your time allotted to writing.The author references her book, Write Better Faster. She states WBF helps us increase speed through experimenting and tracking. There lies the problem with most writing books. They assume their audience spends all day writing. This book, 8-Minute Writing Habit is for people with other responsibi [...]
Monica Leonelle, a successful indie fiction author with over half a million published words to her name, has written this book to help authors make progress on their writing habits - to help to integrate writing into their day as a regular activity. The book includes sections on busting through current blocks that keep you from writing, strategies that professional authors (including her) use to write consistently, and then a structured process to get you writing consistently in just 8 minutes a [...]
It seems like everyone wants to be a writer these days, but sitting down and putting words on the page can be intimidating. In this guide, Monica Leonelle shows you how to get your book started by writing in short 8 minute bursts. But there's much more in this quick guide than just that. She'll also give you concrete, actionable tips and tricks to overcome mental blocks, use technology to your advantage, and explore what methods will get you writing. She also includes an 8x8 Challenge, an 8 day [...]
Pure Gold! Okay, so I'm on a Monica binge-reading fest; I'm borderline obsessed! It's all Monica all the time right now, and it's so awesome! This is another absolute must read in the Growth Hacking for Storytellers series. The 8-Minute Writing Habit highlights the framework in Nail Your Story and will help you develop a writing routine that integrates easily with your life. Many great ideas, but my favorite takeaways are: taking your writing mobile, the plan c method, and using the method of [...]
I've been reading this in dribs and drabs on my phone over the past few weeks and finally had an hour to sit down and finish it off today. There are a lot of great strategies for working in small intervals, fitting writing in during even the busiest days. Some parts were clearly geared toward self-publishers but the advice could be adapted for traditional publishing as well. Might try the 8x8 challenge, but more likely will just start implementing her 4-step productivity framework and trying the [...]
I really struggle with the common advice for dealing with writing problems which is butt in chair. As most often it ends up with me staring at a blank screen, fingers hovering over keyboard as the minutes tick by. So was pleasantly surprised that first part of the book deals with the mental side of things and getting yourself in the right state of mind to write. Book was worth reading just for that. Though found the strategy section helpful and will by looking into dictation and writing first th [...]
Great! Actionable book. The biggest takeaway for me was the actual math: in 8 minutes you can write about 500 words, but lets say we end up with about 250. If I add up my word count of the whole month and divide it by 30, it's way lower than 250, so it's about developing a tiny habit.In case you're thinking of writing a novel or something that ends up being a larger work, I would recommend reading Save The Cat first, to get your story down to beats, and then write down each beat by using Leonell [...]
