Happy 2nd Birthday to My Book, Write Like You Mean It
Updated: Sep 12
This weekend marks two years since my book, Write Like You Mean It: Mastering Your Passion For The Written Word, was officially published. Yes, I know that sounds weird to celebrate a book's birthday. But why not? This is STILL a big deal!
After all, not everyone can say they've written a book. And those who have will tell you it's a huge life accomplishment worth celebrating any chance you can get.
Since that amazing day, I've been working hard to get Write Like You Mean It in front of as many people as possible. I've done everything from book signings to speaking engagements, book fairs, interviews, and networking events. I've also had the good fortune to meet with several school superintendents, public librarians, journalism teachers, and more. I am passionate about educating the next generation of writers. This book achieves that by equipping writers of all experience levels and professional pursuits with trade secrets, versatile tools, and actionable steps to master their passion for the written word while emphasizing its purpose: drawing readers in with quality content and style.
Just a few of the chapters you'll read about include:
Overcoming your fear of writing
What writer's block is telling you
Tips on how to write fiction and nonfiction
The art of quality storytelling
How to get published
And so much more ...
I want this book in every high school and college in the country because, as I'm sure you agree, being able to write and communicate effectively is important, no matter your career.
The Best Is Yet To Come With This Book
Write Like You Mean It is the next great book for writers. It is for writers of all experience levels and professional pursuits (journalists, college writers, aspiring freelancers, future novelists, etc.), and perhaps what makes it so relatable is that it isn't written in a boring textbook kind of way.
Using stories from my early years and frequent foibles as a journalist, I equip aspiring writers with trade tips to learn, tools to utilize, and lessons to write stronger content. Simple steps in each chapter break down the productivity practices of creatives, the organization needed to get to the finish line, and the purpose behind it all: drawing readers in with quality content and style. I discuss the intentional processes behind organizing ideas, conducting interviews, beating writer's block, networking, editing, and publishing.
The point is that whether you're an old hand at writing, a novice, or a college professor aspiring to write full-time, this book is for you, so you too can Write Like You Mean It!
