2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love - Rachel Aaron I've been really worried about writing style today. I started writing when I was 13 and haven't stopped since. It's hard to deny that this is a career I've wanted and worked for. I've learned that there is a big difference between writing and writing well. 2k to 10k breaks down Aaron's solutions to some technical difficulties that a lot of authors face as their trying to navigate the waters from hobbyist to professional. I've tried out some of her suggestions already and liked quite a few of them. As with all how-to books mileage will vary. It's very short and has good internal progression so I didn't have to worry about a million conflicting ideas. The one annoying thing is that there are some pretty obvious typos. Considering it's a writing how-to book it really got annoying.
