Becoming a writer begins with a simple but important belief: You are a writer; you just need to write.

In You Are a Writer, Jeff Goins shares his own story of self-doubt and what it took for him to become a professional writer. He gives you practical steps to improve your writing, get published in magazines, and build a platform that puts you in charge.

This book is about what it takes to be a writer in the 21st Century. You will learn the importance of passion and discipline and how to show up every day to do the work.

Here's what else you will learn:

-How to transition from wanting to be a writer to actually being one
-What “good” writing is (and isn’t)
-How to stop waiting to be picked and finally choose yourself
-What it takes to build a platform
-Why authors need to brand themselves (and how to do it)
-Tips for freelancing, guest blogging, and getting published in magazines
-Different ways to network with other writers, artists, and influencers
-The importance of blogging and social media and how to use it well to find more readers and fans of your writing

You Are a Writer will help you fall back in love with writing and build an audience who shares your love. It’s about living the dream of a life dedicated to words.

There are a thousand ways to say something and at least a few hundred to express it well. This is not simply another thesaurus but a writing lesson which aims to shave a year off of your creative development. This is a bold objective but as you go over these devices in this brief but power tutorial, it will train you to think like a novelist. Let’s see how this works:

First we start with a character description: Bill has grey hair.

This is a fine description, and certainly direct, but let’s flex our muscles a little more:

Bill’s hair is salted with grey.
Bill’s hair is frosted with age.
Bill’s hair is threaded with silver.

Now try these concept words on your own: peppered, streaked, flecked, weeded

You can immediately see the limitations of a traditional thesaurus; they are helpful at supplying literal equivalents, such as charcoal for grey, but frequently miss the finer nuances of language.

Beyond the inspirational support most books offer, I can assure that two things, and only two, are guaranteed to improve your writing. These are reading and the act of writing itself. This is a unique ‘literary thesaurus’ that bridges the gap of reading by taking common descriptive devices and words and places them into usable categories that will serve as a ready toolbox for your own writing.

This study is ideal for beginning and intermediate fiction writers.
