Winner of Write-A-Thon?
Posted by Quirky Books
An enormous thanks to everyone who has taken part in the win a signed copy of Write-A-Thon competition, that is written by Author and Writing Coach Rochelle Melander.
All entries have been amazing and it has been wonderful to read your comments, see your Likes and to interact with all of you.
We have had an incredible 57 entries to the competition and in order to select a winner fairly, I let Rafflecopter make the decision by choosing a winner at random.
And the winner is ———– Amy O. Who answered the question, “What does writing mean to you?”
Amy’s answer: “It means I get to say what I want, when I want, however I want, and as often as I want.”
I thought her answer was great because I could relate to it myself, although I would probably have added “and no one can tell me I can’t.”
Some of the other answers were:
“It means I can unchain myself from the books in my head.”
“The freedom to find and use my own voice.”
“I hate it. I love having done it. An act of masochistic extreme creativity.”
“Writing is how I express ideas and opinions that come to me and communicate them to others, using my words to make them feel what I felt while writing.”
“Writing is leaving a legacy.”
“Everything! Without writing I’m not sure I could consider myself sane, there are plot lines and character quotes roaming around my head that keep telling me I must be written. ”
About Quirky BooksPublished Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book.
