Book Notes: The Art of Slow Writing: Reflections on Time, Craft, and Creativity - Louise DeSalvo

This book, even though, written for aspiring authors who are beginning to learn the art of writing, I felt it would be immensely helpful for any one who writes - be it, news reporting, blog, research paper, business pitch or even professional emails.

Writing, like poetry and music, must adhere to an underlying rhythm.  As writers one must always be consciously aware of the playing the right notes(words) always.

The book,

  1. Demystifies, with examples, some well established myths about writing.
  2. Provides actionable takeaways and pro-tips from the experience of great writers. 
  3. Asserts the importance of slowing down, patience & persistence.
  4. Guides us on how to read a book.
