I started sporadically reading GoinsWriter sometime last year. I liked Jeff’s guest posts on other blogs but wasn’t an avid follower of his work.
Around the first of this year, I did a little Google Reader clean up and decided to subscribe to Jeff’s blog when I ditched some old sites that no longer interested me. It soon became one of my daily favorites.
If you’re an artist who’s simultaneously bubbling with passion and grounded in reality, you’ll dig Jeff. He’s my kind of writer.
I had the pleasure of reading his new ebook, You Are a Writer, and I’m enthused about its potential impact.
Jeff addresses a view that I’ve personally held for a long time. Writers must give up talking about themselves with meaningless adjectives, such as “aspiring” or “not professional.” These concepts may have once held value, but they are outdated.
You Are a Writer is, quite simply, a wake-up call to what you are capable of achieving—right now. It’s backed up with Jeff’s personal journey through self-doubt to self-actualization to blogger to book deal. This guy is living his writing dream and he’s excited about sharing his experiences to help you live out yours.
You may know deep in your soul that you’re a writer—that nothing would make you happier than sharing your words with the world—but you just have no idea how to make the activity of writing a part of your existence. You Are a Writer guides you through the process of contemporary writing and transforms your outlook on possibility.
Life is full of obligations; writing, at the very least, can seem a bit lofty and impractical. However, if that’s what’s going to make you happy, it must become a priority. Your happiness is never lofty and impractical. It’s mandatory.
Here’s a video of Jeff sharing the motivation behind You Are a Writer:
The book is available now at YouAreAWriter.com. It’s educational and entertaining. You’ll probably read it more than once, as it’s the type of text that will continually inspire you.
