Free Form Fridays #2-Jeff Goins Wrecked My Weekend (And I’m Thankful)


*drumroll please*  It’s the return of Free Form Fridays!  I honestly have no idea if this is even remotely interesting to anyone else, but I have to admit that I like doing them anyways.  And since it is my blog, I think this is here to stay for the forseeable future.  At least, until I get bored with it, or something along those lines.  😉

So, on that note…who the heck is this Jeff Goins guy anyway, and how did he wreck my weekend?

Well, I guess a quick introduction is in order.  Jeff Goins is the genius behind a gem of a blog called Goins, Writer, where he primarily focuses on encouraging and challenging other writers to better their craft and to “stay awesome” in the process.  This blog itself is actually partially due to Jeff’s inspiration, since I started it while participating in his 15 day Writer’s Challenge.  Jeff has also put out a few e-books, including The Writer’s Manifesto, and the recently-released You Are A Writer (So Start Acting Like One).  Oh, and did I mention he does all this in his “spare time” on top of his day job working with a missions organization?

 

Now Jeff is about to release his new book, called Wrecked: When A Broken World Slams Into Your Comfortable Life.  You can check out the first chapter for free here

 

Trust me, it’s really worth checking out.  I’m on the launch team for this book, and therefore have the privilege of reading it early.  I’m only part way through, but I can already say that my whole weekend will be Wrecked, thanks to Jeff.  And I am sincerely thankful.  Why?  Because this book is very challenging so far.  If you aren’t willing to be challenged to get out of your nice little comfort zone, don’t read this book…because that is precisely what it does.  I won’t say a whole lot more about it right now, though I plan on posting a full review close to the time when the book actually releases.

 

In the meantime, please help yourself to the free chapter, and you can also check out the book’s website here Also, feel free to watch the trailer for the book.

 

How about you?  Are you reading anything good this weekend?
