Review & Giveaway: Overwhelmed Writer Rescue by Colleen M. Story @colleen_m_story @iReadBookTours #WriterRescue #timemanagement

Today’s demands on writers and other creative artists are overwhelming. Not only must you produce the work you love, but build and maintain a platform and market your finished products to the world—all while holding down a day job and/or caring for a family.

You teeter on the edge. What waits on the other side are burnout, exhaustion, and a complete loss of creative motivation.

Overwhelmed Writer Rescue provides practical, personalized solutions to help beginning and experienced writers and other creative artists escape the tyranny of the to-do list to nurture the genius within. You’ll find ways to boost productivity, improve time management, and restore your sanity while gaining insight into your unique creative nature and what it needs to thrive.

My Review:
I have read one of Ms. Story's books before, a novel, a book of great interest. So, it is that I was excited to read another. 

This book, however, is not a novel but a self-help book. It is one that I truly needed to read at this particular time in my life when I am so desperately trying to write my own stories.

I seriously have felt I have no time to do such a thing but, this author, with her book, has shown me not only how to find time but how not to be stressed while doing all the things I need to do.

She mentions at the beginning of her book that this is not just for writers but for anyone who is finding themselves pinched for time to do the things they really love to do.

The book is divided into sections to help the reader find the time, to not fall into pitfalls that sabotage and to pick one's self up when it does happen.

The author includes small boxes of "time treasures" to make the reader think and also includes quizzes to help further understand one's self, all to move forward into (this case) getting that writing done.

As I said before, this book has come at a great time for me and I do recommend it.

5 stars.
