You Are a Writer – Book Review
Have you ever desired to change the world with your words? To make your own dent in the universe? If you know what I’m talking about, then we have something in common.
We want to be writers.
We want to be communicators.
We want to be influencers. But…
Wanting is not enough. How do we remove the shroud and become writers?
In his latest book, Jeff somehow distills some of his biggest ideas with personal stories and practical advice to help you become who you are, a writer. Ideas like:
- When do you become a writer?
- Who do you write for?
- Picking yourself.
- How to stop writing for accolades and start writing for passion.
- Creativity hijacking productivity.
- Finding your voice.
- Building your platform, brand, and connections.
Becoming a writer may sound ambiguous, possibly even ludicrous. Where would you start? This is where You Are a Writer begins. With you, your thoughts, your words, and your need to create. What we often fail to realize is the cost of not pursuing our art for the sake of living comfortably.
What Jeff has done here is create a clarion call to the everyday artist living inside each of us. The world needs you more than you know, he beckons. Will you answer the call?
Graciously, the rest of You Are a Writer guides you through the process of achieving success in this craft. The book was deftly divided into four sections, allowing quick reading and easy reference without breaking the experience from beginning to end.
- Becoming a writer.
- The truth about writing. Tools, platform, branding, and connection.
- How to begin.
- Before your first book.
As I finished You Are a Writer, I found myself as I always do after reading Jeff’s work… inspired. But this time there was something different, a true sense of clarity about how to implement the wisdom existing within it’s pages. I choose to be a writer, and You Are a Writer is my roadmap for the journey ahead.
