Book Clever

Mostly just my books, but also some reviews (they might contain spoilers, they're imported from GR and don't parse).

I'm an avid reader of all types, but be warned that I mostly enjoy: horror, sci-fi, fantasy, romances and M/M erotica.

2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love

2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love - Rachel Aaron This book was rather disappointing. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, it's just that it wasn't great, and I happened to expect much more from the other reviews and comments on it.
The book is divided in two parts, the first of which actually tells you how she upped her word count, the second of which is more of a detail of her writing process than actual upping word count (sure, it's related, but meh).
While reading the process of writing was interesting, it was also rather boring. Neither part brought much new to the table that someone who's been reading "How to write" books or blogs for a while now wouldn't know.

Also, several misspellings and wrong words throughout the book. Could have used more careful editing, you know, being a book about writing and all.

I have to say, I enjoyed the to-the-point approach of [b:Writing Habit Mastery - How to Write 2,000 Words a Day and Forever Cure Writer’s Block|18478318|Writing Habit Mastery - How to Write 2,000 Words a Day and Forever Cure Writer’s Block|S.J.
