As a blogger I was naturally drawn to this Chicken Soup for the Soul book. It actually took me quite a while to develop this review - simply because I was absorbing every single story and evaluating it for relevance to my situation. I started writing on my blog just for fun - sharing motivational tips with my employees and friends. Then my blog became so much more - the world started to be interested in what I had to say. After a while I begin to feel more like a writer - which I never in a million years would have considered myself. Now I want to write more and differently - but have been quite nervous. I am sure some of the nervous energy is built up from a fear of rejection. These stories really help to create an appropriate perspective and mindset. Life is all about challenges and changes - change is scary but you can't survive in this world without changing. I would rather be in charge of the change rather than a victim of change. Therefore, I will definitely make writing more a part of my future and hopefully that of my children. My favorite story in this collection? "Treat the Rectangle Carefully"... Check it out - there are so many awesome stories to keep you enthralled for a very long time... I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Are you a writer? Have you ever expressed your excitement about characters you’ve created, the drudgery of writer’s block, or the torturous publishing hoops you’ve jumped through to friends or family members that don’t write? If so, you’ve probably gotten strange looks. Nobody understands you, or your passion, like a fellow writer does. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers advises and entertains with a myriad of topics from fear, to finding a mentor. In true Chicken Soup for the Soul fashion, these engaging short stories for writers are inspirational, education, and motivating.  Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Goodreads.
