Overview

Jim Denney is a veteran of both traditional and indie publishing. He has more than 100 published books to his credit, including the Timebenders science-fantasy series for young readers. In WRITING IN OVERDRIVE, he shows you how to: - Write so fast you'll have no time for self-doubt. - Organize your time and workspace to be more productive. - Set ambitious yet attainable productivity goals. - Overcome self-defeating habits and inner resistance to writing daily. - Tap into the power of writing "in the zone" whenever you choose. - Use powerful "writing rituals" to prepare yourself to write. - Be aware and focused yet relaxed as you write. - Become undistractible-even when surrounded by distractions. - Leverage the motivational energy of NaNoWriMo. - Eliminate writer's block. - and much MORE. You'll acquire skills you can road-test immediately on your current work-in-progress. Each principle is powerfully illustrated by stories from the author's own experience and from the lives of such prolific, successful writers as Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, John Steinbeck, Agatha Christie, Michael Moorcock, Ed McBain, Jack Kerouac, Raymond Chandler, and many more. You'll see how to apply these life-changing principles in real-life writing situations, and learn to write with phenomenal speed, confidence, and mastery, whether in traditional publishing or the indie publishing world.
