E-book Review: 2k to 10k

2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love by Rachel Aaron2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love by Rachel Aaron by Rachel Aaron.

While Aaron’s background is in fiction writing, and her focus in the book often is about plotting and other story concerns that relate to fiction, many of her tips and suggestions will work for any sort of writing. She’s very encouraging and inspiring, and I appreciated her straightforward approach.

Her ideas are also very doable, and the specific examples from her experience developing her method shows how it can work. Her approach really resonated with me and I loved reading her examples so much that I went looking for her fiction books.

My only complaint with it is that there are a fair number of typos and misspellings. It’s such a well-done book otherwise that I was surprised to find them. Don’t let that put you off from reading it, just be aware that they are there, and it’s disappointing.

I grabbed this when it was offered for free from Amazon, but that promotion has ended. It’s back to the usual price of $.99, and it’s easily worth that.

Description:
“Have you ever wanted to double your daily word counts? Do you sometimes feel like you’re crawling through your story? Do you want to write more every day without increasing the time you spend writing or sacrificing quality? It’s not impossible, it’s not even that hard. This is the book explaining how, with a few simple changes, I boosted my daily writing from 2000 words to over 10k a day, and how you can too.”

Expanding on her highly successful process for doubling daily word counts, this book, a combination of reworked blog posts and new material, offers practical writing advice for anyone who’s ever longed to increase their daily writing output. In addition to updated information for Rachel’s popular 2k to 10k writing efficiency process, 5 step plotting method, and easy editing tips, this new book includes chapters on creating characters that write their own stories, practical plot structure, and learning to love your daily writing. Full of easy to follow, practical advice from a commercial author who doesn’t eat if she doesn’t produce good books on a regular basis, 2k to 10k focuses not just on writing faster, but writing better, and having more fun while you do it.

  1. Wow, that’s disappointing that a book about writing would have typos and misspellings. I find them annoying when they pop up in the books I’m reading, but I try to focus on the story or what I’m learning.

    • It was disappointing, but I guess at least it wasn’t a grammar book with grammatical mistakes. 😉

      And that is why you will never see me post about grammar. It’s a guarantee that I’ll have some obvious mistakes in it, only to be discovered once the post is live. Just like all my typos. haha.

      Anyway, yes, it was a bit jarring, especially because the rest of the book was so well-done. Still a worthwhile read though, but I kind of wish she’d go back to it and fix the typos so anyone buying the book in the future wouldn’t see them. I say that, although I have no idea how difficult it is to do that sort of thing on a kindle book. I may be asking for something that is hours and hours and hours of work, hours that she has decided are better spent working on her next novel.

  2. I’ve been considering this one since I saw Anne Bogel mention it a while back. Thanks for the heads up about the typos. I can deal with them better when I’m not blind-sided by them!

    • Yup, I know what you mean by that. Maybe if you’re expecting them they won’t seem like quite so many too – you’ll be thinking it’ll be a lot worse than it is. 🙂
