After reading Rachel Aaron’s much-shared blog post about how she increased her daily word output, I decided to buy her book on the same topic, which, she claims, “combines several writing posts from my blog, cleaned up and expanded, with all new content, and all for under a buck.” 2k to 10k begins with the original blog post from Aaron’s blog, Pretentious Title, and includes several other chapters similarly based around her blog posts, such as Editing for People Who Hate Editing.
The book is full of good advice. It seems aimed at the intermediate writer – the writer who is, perhaps, not yet published but has a fair few thousand words under their belt. The blog posts chosen for inclusion in the book suit this target audience. Aaron’s tone is friendly and helpful – reflective of the original blog format, but equally appropriate in the book version.
