Not only is this a beautiful item to look at, it’s jam-packed with tips, inspiration, and a “you can do this” attitude.
Who is it for? Well, in the author’s own words:
Not for the faint of heart!
and by that she means this is for the writer who isn’t looking for someone to hold their hand and tell them it’s all going to be just fine. Instead, it’s for those who feel their writing isn’t progressing, at least not in the
way or at the pace they want it to, and they need someone to ask the right questions—which are never the easy ones —while providing them with a safe space where they can chew on their answers.
This feels more like a workbook to me, with an easy-to-read font and an elegant design. It’s like having your own writing coach in book form. This is more than a simple notebook or to-do planner – because we all know how easy it is to write that list, but it’s just as easy to move the goalposts and get nothing done.
The beauty of this is that you can start it anytime – you’re not restricted to a regular calendar year, and so day 1 really is the day you start to use it fully.
From the very first week, the reader/writer is challenged to think about how writing makes them feel. Usually, I’d skip these “feel-good” sections and move on to the nitty-gritty, but then I realised that this is just as important as getting words on paper (or screen 😉 ) I love the idea of setting long-terms goals, not just in my head, but actually thinking about them and committing those goals by writing them down – in permanent ink, not pencil cos that’d be too easy to erase. Yeah, I know that trick too well 😉 You might think writing these things down could lead to disappointment if the deadline passes without you, but for me it actually focuses my mind on the goal. Throughout this planner there are opportunities to look back and see how you’ve done, to work out why things didn’t go to plan, and also to celebrate those milestones that you hit. With inspirational quotes to spur you on, this is a resource every writer should have.
I’ll be recommending this to all my writer friends.
Finally, I’d like to thank Mariëlle for also offering her other books for free during this month. Be sure to check out her giveaway page for details. You’ll be glad you did.
