This the first book that awakened the sleeping writer in me. So thankful for Jeff Goins and his inspiring and motivational words. It's true that we only fully become what we think we are. It starts with claiming who we are. And if you are a writer, recognize yourself as a writer. Read this book and take your first step in acting and being like a true writer.
