I used to read a lot of how-to books. The advice started to get repetitive and I began to weary of reading simplistic tips that I rarely used in my own life.
The other night, I happened across a book to help writer’s overcome their procrastination. The book had 44 excellent (5-star) reviews on Amazon.com, and that was out of 45 total. There were no bad reviews. In fact, the lowest rating was one 4-star review.
At first, I assumed there was some trickery involved: lots of friends wrote reviews for the author. Then I realized that there were NO bad reviews. Authors can’t control rogue reviewers logging into Amazon with their opinions.
The Kindle version of the book is really low cost: $3.95. Why not try it?
The 7 Secrets of the Prolific: The Definitive Guide to Overcoming Procrastination, Perfectionism, and Writer’s Block, by Hillary Rettig (Author), Barry Deutsch (Illustrator)
I’m only a few chapters into the book, and I have to say, I believe it may help. I’m already mulling over Rettig’s ideas about procrastination, both the physical and emotional hindrances writers face. I’ll update you when I’ve read a little more and see how well I can put the advice into practice.
