“You don’t have to want to be a writer. You are a writer. You just need to write.” – Jeff Goins
I was lucky enough to be one of the first 50 people who had the opportunity to read Jeff Goins, “You Are A Writer” book a week before it was released to the public (it’s out now).
If you don’t know who Jeff Goins is, I recommend that you take a look at his blog. I stumbled onto Jeff’s blog a couple of months back and I have been an avid reader ever since.
His writing caught my attention the first time I read one of his posts. Jeff is an excellent writer who is able to connect and resonate with his readers. Every blog post that he wrote has an amazing lesson and many other takeaways.
So I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to read his book over the weekend. Although I had one of those tough weekends, I managed to finish his book in one sitting. I couldn’t stop reading his book because it is a captivating page-turner and I connected with it from the first paragraph itself.
In this book, Jeff starts off by sharing his personal journey on how he started to be a writer. It resonated with me because I have never considered myself as a writer, but Jeff clearly believes that we are all writers and that we shouldn’t be afraid to write what we know.
Every chapter you read has a personal story behind it too. You get the feeling that the book not only helps you connect with yourself but also lets you know a little better of what a writer really is. Jeff’s personal stories makes it that much more realistic.
In this book, you will also discover
- How to get STARTED and WHERE to start
- How to create a brand and make yourself memorable.
- How to build an audience and grow an audience
I highly recommend ‘You are a writer’ for all the writers out there who are still struggling to call themselves a writer or struggling to start this route. For those who have not found their voice, this is the book for YOU.
I believe if you read his book and you start taking action like what Jeff does every day, you’ll become the amazing writer that you’ve always dreamt of. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to say that YOU are a writer.
If you do anything long enough, it becomes habitual. – Jeff Goins
