Becoming a writer starts with an important but little-known belief: You’re a writer; you only have to write.

You Are a Writer by Jeff Goins helps you see your writing career as something more than a hobby or a pastime.

One of the things that strikes me as unusual about You Are a Writer is that it is not a how-to book. Although the title says that it’s a book about writing, it doesn’t seem to presume that the reader will have any experience writing at all. Rather, the book is more of a how-to guide with practical advice on everything from finding a writing partner to getting started writing to maintaining a writing career. There are many helpful suggestions about how to be a better writer, such as using writing practice exercises to expand your vocabulary, getting the necessary editing done, and staying organized. By doing these simple things on a regular basis, anyone can establish a solid writing career even if they are just starting out.
The reality is that there are many writing chances available to anyone who really wants them. It is just a matter of deciding what sort of writing will serve you best. You Can’t Be Your Own Publisher is a refreshing and encouraging book about how to be a writer without losing your mind along the way. As you read along, many of the writing tips and advice in this book will seem familiar to you.
As you begin your journey as a professional writer, you don’t have to put up with being another anonymous internet writer. As the saying goes, “A rising star is remembered, not only for what they produce but also for who they are.” You can be a good writer and a great contribution to society by creating books, articles, or freelance writing projects. When you follow the steps in This Book, you will quickly find yourself on the path to having a rewarding writing career.
