SPOS #317 - Get Writing With Jeff Goins

Welcome to episode #317 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. 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...

    My writing change when I came to the point I had ceased to be a consumer of other people's ideas, and began to become a producer of my own. It is much more fulfilling.

    And Jeff, I agree, there is something in us, some meta- that functions at the level of both desire and talent that leads us to our calling. And only we can know when we've found it. Journey on.
