Reader Reviews

a fast-paced, full-to-the-brim work that is both informative and inspirational

“Cassandra never fails to deliver on providing a fast-paced, full-to-the-brim work that is both informative and inspirational. And after reading Word by Word I will also add, motivational. 

As a newbie writer, it was good to gain insight into how an experienced writer manages things like distractions, getting started, blocks and procrastination. I love the way Cassandra packs a diverse array of tips and techniques between the covers, seemingly covering every aspect of preparing for writing, much as an athlete prepares for a race. 

But what I really enjoyed about this book was how Cassandra drew me into her own writing journey and shared how she overcomes things like getting started, staying focused, managing interruptions, making time to write, and finishing. I felt some magic alchemy in here, it was as if by reading her personal experience I gained insight which made me realize I wasn’t alone in the experience, was just under-resourced in the solution. 

And this book provided the solutions, covering strategies from neuroscience, nutrition, mindset, tips from addiction science, and stories of staying true to self. And true to Cassandra’s passion for passion, this subject is captured as well.

I love Cassandras writing style which is fast and fresh, at times infused with a hint of sensuality. This book packs in a lot of subject matter. Every writer looking for a source of tips and tools to stay the course and get their book finished would benefit from a read.”

Available in ebook, and paperback—audio and hardcover coming soon.
