Over the past few years, I've managed to write a few books that became Amazon Best Sellers. I learned a great deal about writing a book the hard way, and the three books Collins has put together would have helped me a great deal...and reading through this compilation still helped me with problems I wasn't totally aware of.
Getting an idea for a book: easy. Coming up with a title: semi-easy (but you'll probably keep changing it later). Hardware and software: trivial.
Actually writing the book? Ah, there's the rub...Collins addresses most of the hurdles you'll run into and gives you concrete suggestions for organizing your writing and actually getting a book finished.
You can click on Look Inside to see the table of contents of the books to see what kinds of Help await you. The third book addresses itself to writing non-fiction, but new fiction writers will find useful information there as well.
Now, to set some context, I no longer read a lot, I prefer audiobooks. But once I got started on "Become a Writer Today", I could not put my phone down. It's packed with value. The advice and prompts that Bryan gives are straightforward and easily actionable. I don't want to give too much away, but here is one of the things Bryan said that stuck with me and really helped me write better: "Insert a sensory detail into your work. Did the coffee taste bitter? Was his skin cold to touch? Did her voice sound like a cat being castrated? Were his eyes bloodshot? Did he reek of gone-off tuna? And so on."
If you want to become a better writer, get his book today! And start reading and applying his advice right now. I can guarantee that you will not regret it. It made me better.
Collins, who is a supporter of journal writing, details other writers in history who took their notebooks with them daily to write down ideas, descriptions, feelings, and inspirations. What is enjoyable in Collin's book is the personal and historical anecdotes of those who wrote in the past and also his description of his own writing journey. Collins remains humble about the subject of writing, understanding the potential pain within the writing process, but also understanding the driving force of those who yearn to write.
Collins offers tools for writers at the end of his book: writers’ websites, editorial help, book covers, formatting, and places to get beta readers. Clearly, this author has done his homework. He also lists references where he got his information from, a huge stockpile to glean further research on the subject. Finally, a big bonus at the end of the book is the free video training he offers.
BECOME A WRITER TODAY.. is written with a genuine intent to motivate and spur authors forward as they develop and practice their craft. By the end of this book, it is clear that any excuses not to write are overpowered by Collin’s thorough research into the writer’s mindset. Collins genuinely wants to help other writers, and he has done more legwork in order to offer writers productive outlets and mentoring connections, than most books about writing have done before him.
Putting out these three books, bundled as one set to best serve his audience - writers like you and me - in "Become A Writer Today" Bryan has given us a priceless set of tools for our toolkits - ones that we can reference over and over.
Easy to follow, without a bunch of writerly jargon, Bryan precisely gives us the tips and tools we need - with practical takeaways - to implement into any writing process. And though I did receive an advanced copy for an honest review, I purchased a hard copy so that I can mark it up and have it ready to go on my desk...
