I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
Author Naomi D. Nakashima takes readers on a journey to explore the individual fears we all face as writers in completing our stories and how to overcome them in the book “Write Out Loud: How to Get Over Your Fears and Build the Confidence to Finally Write Your Book”.
Are you still struggling with your book? Feeling overwhelmed or creatively blocked with self-doubt, fear, and general anxiety about what it means to write a book? Are you still wondering if you have what it takes to even write a book?
Not all fears are created equal.
Write Out Loud is a step-by-step guide to help you identify the fears that are keeping you from sharing your story so you can beat them back and finally write your book with confidence. In Write Out Loud, you’ll learn how to:
• identify the source of your self-doubts and fears
• validate your book idea
• gain self-belief (in your story and in your ability to write your story)
• start writing your first draft with confidence
• feel comfortable talking about your book idea
• And, yes, much more!
Amazon bestselling author and ghostwriter Naomi D. Nakashima brings her experience of helping authors to write and publish their books along with her training as a psychotherapist to walk you through the sometimes painful process of facing your fears and sharing your story. If you’re ready to finally sit down and start writing your book without the fear and anxiety, read Write Out Loud: How to Get Over your Fears and Build the Confidence to Finally Write Your Book.
This is a detailed and well-developed book. The author does a marvelous job of touching upon the writing process in a meticulous way that gives established and newcomer authors a feel for what they can expect during the writing and publishing process. The precision and concise nature of the author’s writing really allowed readers to get a broad look into each and every step the journey to becoming an author can take.
For me, the wealth of information and the straightforward way the author lays out the process while also providing a personable writing approach to the fears and holdups that people can have when it comes to writing made this a compelling read. The exploration of everything from character and narrative development to facing anxiety about your writing and finding the time to write in general really made this book feel like a fresh and engaging read.
Compelling, engaging, and inspiring, author Naomi D. Nakashima’s “Write Out Loud” is a must-read nonfiction book and guide on writing and overcoming one’s anxieties surrounding writing. The detail and enlightening concepts the author touches upon were great, especially one of my favorites surrounding developing an audience, and the way this book will speak to writers and authors on any level of the writing process made this feel like a truly special read. If you haven’t yet, be sure to grab your copy today!
