Jeff Goins’ “You Are a Writer” giveaway
To be honest, I’m not even sure why I jumped on Jeff’s book.
I’ve always enjoyed writing but never considered myself a writer. I simply wrote because I liked to write. But there was just something about Jeff’s presentation. His constant signal of serving resonated with me.
I perused Jeff’s book on Amazon and took the leap. I was at a client site doing some computer work when I bought the book, waiting for some large files to copy. I ended up reading the entire book during the copy process, finishing it just as the copy process finished.
I was blown away.
This book is NOT just about being a writer. More aptly, it should be named, “You Are What You Want to Be.”
Jeff doesn’t just give solid writing advice. Large sections of his book are relevant to anyone in any field, looking to find balance with what they are, what they wish they were and how to bridge the gap between the two.
I’m going to give you the big picture of Jeff’s book in one simple sentence, but this does NOT disqualify you from reading his book. It’s eloquently written, easy to take in, and frankly, inspiring.
Throughout Jeff’s book, one theme is pervasive:
When it came to my blog, shawnw.org, Jeff’s book reminded me that I’d quit. I’d become discouraged because, for a season of time, I had regular visitors and regular commenters. Eventually that season passed because I stopped writing. I was judging my success by the number of comments I got on each post and the number of eyes that looked at my site.
Amongst the numbers, I’d lost my voice.
Jeff’s book reminded me that if I write with my voice, other like-minded individuals will find it, and community will happen.
This is where you come in.
