I have to be honest with you. This book was on my TBR list for a LONG time. I started reading it when it first came out, but when I discovered it had exercises at the end of every chapter, I decided to set it aside until I had time to give it the attention it deserved. Now that it’s been out for almost a year, this past week I decided to make the time to go through it.
And honestly, I’m glad I did.
Yes, this book has typos. Yes, Kristen gives us advice that I don’t necessarily agree with and that I believe isn’t for everyone. But honestly, I didn’t pick this book up to make my author journey, or my life, be just like Kristen’s. Instead, I went through it slowly. I highlighted the important points that really spoke to me. I completed the exercises, as hard as some of them were to honestly answer, and I came out better for it.
Kristen put a lot of herself and her personal experiences in this book. She was vulnerable, yet I found the book to be conversational and easy to read. The closing thoughts at the end of each chapter were a nice touch as well and I’ve already typed up and printed a few to use as mantras.
P.S. Chapters Five and Eleven were by far my favorite chapters. They deal with time and comparison and I know they’re chapters that I know I’ll return to time and time again.
