Quick review for a brief read between reads. I’m on the fence about “The Miracle Morning for Writers” on the whole, though I liked a good portion of it and will likely return to those pieces for reference. It’s a very good overview of several aspects of writing, especially for beginning writers, and the most helpful parts of the book for me came in the first 40% (or thereabout) of the book about building the concept of the “Miracle Morning” and developing solid affirmations in your writing habits. But then the book became slightly redundant and dragged into very long sections when it came to the framework and process of writing. I feel like the reference materials for writing guides included in the book (like Rachel Aaron’s “2k to 10K”) did a better job of providing orientations and productivity strategies. A good reference guide for actionable inspirations, but I think it was too general in several sections, particularly when it came to writing craft.

Overall score: 3/5 stars.
