Review: Nailed It by Amy Miles

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Today’s writers deal with pressures from all sides: to publish quickly, to stay seen in an over flooded market, to keep their readers happy and to find a way to earn enough money to keep following their dreams.
Writing is not easy. It can be lonely, disheartening and it is easy to feel buried by the very thing you were once passionate about. NAILED IT is 150 inspirations, mantras, mottos or quirky sayings that I have used in my personal bouts with burnout. I hope that they will encourage you, inspire you and remind you that although writing is many times a solo endeavor, writers all around the world understand the pressure you feel to succeed.
You are not alone.
“If at first you don’t succeed, change your view on what defines success.” ~ Amy Miles
I loved this book of inspirational quotes so much!! They were inspirational, but also cute, funny and quirky. Amy Miles did a fantastic job creating a way to motivate authors and inspire authors to always push through, and no matter what, to finish the book that is being written. I am not a writer, but hoping to one day be. I know I am one of those aspiring writers who will critique and edit my work as I write. From this, I learned to just get it on paper first. Write the story, and edit after. Writing isn't an easy career. Writers get critiqued and reviews are left for their hard work. Yes, not everyone will like the same story. But, getting those tough reviews are scary. This book of motivational quotes lets authors know that all authors go through this. That no matter what push forward and tell the story your heart wants to tell. That you are writing for yourself and no one else.
Every author needs a little encouragement. These quotes are so powerful and meaningful that they can be used anytime throughout the writing process. I loved how Amy made this so colorful and creative. They were so pretty to look at. Instantly made me happy! I love that this is in book form, but I would really love to have these as individual cards if that makes sense. So I can pull out the one that I need for that particular moment. I think Amy should look into this as well!! She definitely Nailed It with these!!!
