Write Mind: 299 Things Writers Should Never Say To Themselves

I don’t often publish book reviews of general writing books, but here’s one I read last year so I included the review I posted on Goodreads. It’s not a Christian book by any means, but writing books don’t have to be religious. 🙂

This particular book helps discouraged writers reframe their negative thoughts into positive ones. This helps change momentum, optimism, and ultimately results. I should print the 299 thoughts on toilet paper so I could read them every day! (But the author might not like me saying that!)

 


Write Mind: 299 Things Writers Should Never Say To Themselves (And What They Should Say Instead)Write Mind: 299 Things Writers Should Never Say To Themselves by Eric Maisel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As the title sounds, Write Mind a list of negative things writers say to themselves and the positive statements to replace the negative ones. Eric Maisel’s concepts had resonated with me before so I thought this would be helpful and I was right. It helped me feel better about moving forward. I may have to read it periodically to help correct my thinking and it’s a quick, easy read (one hour). It was funny, too.
