Get Writing!

Episode #317 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Do you think you have a book in you? A blog? A blog post? A clever tweet? Do you love the industry that you serve? Do you write about it? There's no doubt about it, writing will make you smarter, better and more informed about your life (both personally and professionally). The problem is that most people don't know where to start. They think that writers have some kind of special, unique gift. Jeff Goins can help you. I read his e-book, You Are A Writer (So Start Acting Like One) and it gave me a ton of insight. Ricardo Bueno was kind enough to make an e-intro, and I was thrilled that Jeff agreed to come on to the podcast. Jeff has since published his first book, Wrecked, and continues to blog regularly about how to write and how to become a better writer. Enjoy the conversation...

    For me, writing is a hobby, like baking. It gives me a channel to express my creativity, solve my problems, and develop my ideas. It gives a tangible, physical, visual representation to my thoughts. I can see them. It makes them real. It gives closure.

    Writing is also about self discipline. The control required to start early, think, edit, revise, and finalize something you're exhausted by, is immense. It's like the burst of energy that gets an athlete across the finish line, or a chocolate lover the ability to say no.
