Publisher's Summary

"Have you ever wanted to double your daily word counts? Do you feel like you're crawling through your story, struggling for each paragraph? Would you like to get more words every day without increasing the time you spend writing or sacrificing quality? It's not impossible; it's not even that hard. This is the story of how, with a few simple changes, I boosted my daily writing from 2,000 words to over 10k a day and how you can, too."

Expanding on the author's highly successful process for doubling daily word counts, this audiobook - a combination of reworked blog posts and new material - offers practical writing advice for anyone who's ever longed to increase their daily writing output. In addition to updated information for Rachel's popular 2k to 10k writing efficiency process, five-step plotting method, and easy editing tips, this new book includes chapters on creating characters that write their own stories, story structure, and learning to love your daily writing. Full of easy-to-follow, practical advice from a commercial author who doesn't eat if she doesn't produce good books on a regular basis, 2K to 10K focuses on not just writing faster but writing better and having more fun while you do it.

This revised edition includes updates and corrections for all chapters!

Could You Be Writing Faster?

If you're an author who hasn't spent a lot of time analyzing your writing practice, this is a must-read. Rachel Aaron takes you through her own process, where she's discovered how to write better and faster.

She talks about her approach, and gives helpful advice on plotting and editing. I know some writers won't agree with everything she says. But this is what works for her, and learning what others do can only be helpful.

I've gotten a lot out of this book, and that's something that will help me for years to come.

Practical, down-to-earth. Just buy it.

If you are an aspiring writer and you are wondering whether to buy this book, then hop off the fence and buy it. It's totally worth your time and money.

The book is practical, down-to-earth and super-encouraging. It's got lots of specific tips about specific problems that writers run into.

Arial Burnz does a great job with the narration.

Valuable read for any author

I am a non-fiction writer, and I still got tons of value from this book, even though it focuses primarily on fiction.

I liked it

This book was a nice little boost to my motivation for writing. The reviews I read on Amazon said that the pointers offered in this book were obvious, but that doesn't make them any less true. I needed something that hit me in the right spot and this book did it. I have been struggling to get my creative juices flowing for a while now and this worked to get me back to filling the blank pages for my story. Thanks Rachel. I really enjoyed it.

Common Sense

Basically preparation is the key to writing more. Some helpful information for new writers. Experienced writers may find the chapters about outlining scenes and knowing what you're going to write before you sit down to do it helpful
A pantser would not benefit from this book at all.

Really helpful

I loved every bit of this book. The advice all made sense to me. It was inspiring and helpful. The editing part was particularly insightful. It's not just the same advice people give over and over. This book filled me with hope and optimism. The essence of it really spoke to me. I'll go back to it again, I'm sure. The best part about the book is that is packed with sound advice, but going back to it won't take much time because it's short, which means I'll have more time to write. I definitely recommend it.
