I must admit that before I found Just Write It!, it was quite a challenge for me to start writing tasks, such as motivation or cover letters, that required demonstrating creativity and individualism. I also felt my business correspondence and reports were too long, lifeless and "heavy to digest" from the reader perspective. Consequently, I failed to draw adequate attention to the content which was often crucial in my overall performance in projects and other assignments.
I feel that my writing skills have been substantially upgraded after I devoted some time to diligently follow the exercises from the book. The exercises were amazingly uncomplicated and funny at the same time. The noticeable benefits were clearer structure and useful vocabulary that particularly came in handy for different writing tasks. The creative part of me was woken up, too and contributed to help liven up my writing.
Thanks to the advice provided in the book I am now able to write informative and engaging e-mails and memos that are easy to read and simply likeable. I often get positive feedback from colleagues at work on my writing performance. Finally, I managed to write a winning cover letter that has helped me to get a dream job.
I intend to continue on the learning path with my personal writing guidance, the book Just Write It!, that I can always consult for reliable advice.
I really enjoyed the quizzes in this book as they help to identify the type of writer you are. This enables the reader to focus in on the coaching advice in the book that is specifically tailored to their needs.
I especially liked the exam chapter and loved that it took a psychological approach to writing. I also appreciated the holistic advice which addressed the benefits of yoga and meditation as well as evidence which shows that listening to certain types of music can help relax the brain and optimise exam performance.
