I know what you're thinking...
You're thinking, "But, Becca... I don't want to quit writing."
*nods* I don't want you to quit writing, dear writer. But there are a lot of things that you do need to quit doing, when it comes to both your writing career and the writing process.
How do I know this?
Because I have coached thousands of writers. Six- and seven-figure authors, major award winners, midlisters, and new authors alike. And there are patterns to what writers need to quit, what we need to keep, and what we need to question. Those patterns are why I'm here, writing to you. Anyone can tell you what worked for them, and of course they can say, "it might not work for you," but they can't tell you why.
Come and join me, and I'll tell you why.

This is probably one of the best non-fiction books I've read this year. Something about this book really resonated with me and there were so many insightful moments. While it's focused on writers, I think it can be insightful for other people as well. I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it in only a few days as something kept me pulling me back to this book. It really gave me some new perspective and made me evaluate my own behavior. And it felt nice how the author focused on individual differences and finding out what works for you, it felt very validating for me as I often feel like I do things differently/ wrong and this book made me feel better about that as this is what works for me. While the book has some hard truths about how difficult this type of work is, I thought it was very accepting and encouraging. She doesn't pull punches and it felt very real and honest, but definitely accepting as well. There are some great bits of information in this book and things that made me think and even with all that going on it was still an enjoyable read as well. The author of this book is a coach and I think that gave her a unique point of view and different approach than I see in most books and I thought it really worked here. I would definitely recommend this to authors, writers or other people that work in this industry or that work for themselves or do any type of creative job as I think the information in this book is applicable to a lot of people and a lot of areas in life.
