“5,000 Words Per Hour” by Chris Fox Review

Disclaimer: I read the ebook version of this book.

5,000 Words Per Hour: Write Faster, Write Smarter5,000 Words Per Hour: Write Faster, Write Smarter by Chris Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting concept for writing and adding to one’s writing, and something I wouldn’t mind attempting. There is heavy emphasis on using an app the author created to make this plan work, but that app is only available to iPhone and Mac users (Apple products) rather than Android and Windows users, which is kind of depressing, but he did provide a spreadsheet that can follow the same process, so it’s not as bad as it could be.

Second Read-Through
I enjoyed this book a little more this time around. I think the only reason I dislike it actually are mentioned in my original review above.

Sometimes, re-reading a book can be a good thing. Both times I read straight through without doing the exercises laid out in the book, but it doesn’t matter if you do them at the end of the book or as you read along. The point is to do them. I don’t remember doing all of them the first time I read this book, but I did see the value in most of them. This time, I completed each of the exercises and I found more value in the book overall. It also helps that I’ve started tracking my word counts in more months than just NaNo months, so I’ve seen the results of what Fox discusses in this book and how I’ve improved over time.
