Books read in 2011: No. 33 - First Draft in 30 Days

First Draft in 30 Daysby Karen S. Wiesner

Started: June 27
Finished: July 4

Notes: I really need to ramp up my speed at writing and my discipline. To that end, I decided to check out this book once I had read a little about the author. Wiesner seems to write mostly romance fiction, which does not hold much interest for me, but she does appear to be quite prolific, and that definitely interests me. Hopefully I will pick up some ideas for disciplining myself and remain motivated.

Mini review: I can sum up the basics of this book in one word: Outlining. And there's nothing wrong with that. Some authors outline, some don't Wiesner outlines to extremes, in my opinion, but hey ... whatever works, right? I did not receive any major epiphanies from this book, though it did suggest to me a few little tricks and ideas, stuff I hadn't thought of before, so I'm glad I gave it a whirl.
