Book Review: Writing Without Rules

Posted on 26 May 2018

Writing Without Rules reminds us that the most important step you can take towards being a writer is actually writing. It kinda reminded me of weight loss advice. We all know the only way to lose weight is to exercise more and eat less/ healthy, but the real challenge is following that advice.

In this book, the author offers tidbits of unconventional advice, urging writers to stick with whatever process works for them. I liked his focus on finishing books rather than following the perfect process. I could relate to a lot of that advice.

The grey boxes of unconventional wisdom included in every chapter alone are worth the price of this book. I recommend it to people who have trouble finishing manuscripts.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


- Cover (can we take a moment to admire that gorgeous cartoon-print?)
- Short and to-the-point
- Unconventional advice
- Covers all important aspects of a writer's life


- Nothing really. This book might not be for everyone, especially more seasoned writers. Like I said, I recommend it to those people who have trouble finishing manuscripts.
