The Writer’s Manifesto: Stop Writing to Be Read & Adored

I’m excited to announce the launch of my first eBook! After weeks of writing, editing, and formatting, I’m pleased to now share with you: The Writer’s Manifesto.

Pow! This is a good one, a wake up call and just what you need to read. Thanks Jeff, for sharing your art.

About the manifestoWriters Manifesto Book Cover

The Writer’s Manifesto is a small eBook about getting back to the heart of writing.

Based on a blog post I wrote called “Writers Don’t Write to Get Published,” this short manifesto is a call for writers to fall back in love with writing for the love of it.

I intentionally made the eBook short and sweet, so that you could read it in one sitting.

If you are a writer, this might be just what you need to reclaim your  freedom and rediscover the joy of writing. I heartily recommend it.
—Michael Hyatt // Chairman, Thomas Nelson

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Yesterday, I posted the Prologue and Chapter 1 of my novel to be launched on September 5. I was so inspired by the podcast that when I signed up for the Tribe I used ladybauthor. When I started my graduate program i used (and still do) ladybdr. Intention is everything. My novel is an example of my manifesto. Thanks to Charlie Brown, I have met the enemy and she is me.

  2. In a Facebook group I’m active in, we’ve been having a similar discussion. Why do we write? I’m going to share this because it will definitely resonate with the folks over there at the Dragon’s Rocketship. Thank you!

  3. Whoa, for a minute there I thought you were inside my head. Yes, yes, and YES to each page of The Writer’s Manifesto.

  4. Very inspirational! I have a huge post-it on my computer that says, “your job is to show up”, “Honor the gift, honor your gift”, “even without applause”, “the real writer in you is waiting”…..Love that! Thank you so much!

  5. Jeff Goins … Enjoyed reading “The Writer’s Manifesto” and agree, “I can NOT write…” You also presented a beautiful display depicting the impact of “white space” when properly used. Thank you.

  6. Jeff, I LOVED both your message and your manifesto format. In fact, I loved it so much I was inspired to create something similar entitled “The Marriage Secret: How to enjoy marriage for LIFE.” I’d love for you to check it out here: https://madlyinlove.org/marriage-secret/

    Thanks for doing what you do each day; please know that it inspires and encourages the rest of us!

  7. I just finished reading your book. I loved it it. I am going to stop reading and playing in social media and start writing again.

  8. I couldn’t be more inspired than I am right now. I completely agree with everything you stated and feel as if I could almost be a poster child for your manifesto. Please keep more great pieces coming.

  9. Amen to everything you had to say. I just read the manifesto and I absolutely agree with all of it. I write because it’s what I do. I’m working on my sixth novel, and when I finish one book, I don’t take more than a week to start something else. In fact, I have a problem. I’m supposed to be reading more. All the authors I have read tell me so. The problem is, I don’t know where to fit in the time for it….

  10. Is it wrong to really want to make money with my writing though? I feel compelled to write, but also really want to make some money doing it….

  11. Hi, Jeff. I’m subscribed to your newsletter already, but somehow I missed downloading your Writer’s Manifesto when I originally subscribed. Is there a direct link you’d be willing to share? Many thanks. Looking forward to being inspired Goins style.

  12. Thank you Jeff Goins for validating my recent thoughts about writing. I mentioned to my writers’ guild the other day that I labored for three days over a 4,000 word personal essay with no thoughts of publishing it, instead I merely enjoyed the art of putting one word in front of the other. Thanks for Manifesto too. 🙂

  13. Jeff, I discovered this today. And then I cried all the way through it. I do this thing, when I feel like God is giving me something good, like a gift, I hold the palms of my hands open to Him, sort of like a cup to receive. That’s what I did as I read this. It touched me so deeply. Thank you, thank you. I’m now following along here. And on your “Wrecked” blog. And I’m praying for you today, “May the Lord bless you and keep you. Cause His face to shine all warm and bright on yours and give you lots and lots of peace.”

  14. Thank you Jeff. This eBook is fantastic, easy-to-read and enjoyable. This helped bring me back to the basics of writing while re-instilling the reason why I have chosen to become a writer. Simply put…The love and passion to write

  15. Thanks Jeff, just read the writer’s manifesto. I like what you say. It’s inspiring. I promise I will keep going back to it. One thing that touches me is when you say don’t write to be published or applauded. That changes it all for me. God has given me a gift and I will just pour it out. Thanks a million.

  16. The ‘Writer’s Manifesto’ is, in and of itself, a work of art. It resonated strongly with me, and has given me the courage to stop writing for other people. It was beautifully written, and so honest, so personal, that I cannot help but admire it; you must have been following the manifesto even as you penned it. I’m printing this out and putting it in a prominent place, as a constant reminder of what it really means to be a writer. This is worth more than many other books on the craft I have read. Thank you so much, Jeff, for putting this into the world.

  17. This too me is a brilliant piece of work. Some of the things in it I have never even thought of before, such as writing for my self and not others. That is what I am going to start doing from now on, writing for myself. http://www.scorezone.tk

  18. Thank you for writing this book and sharing it to us. It made realize how important the process of being wrecked in a writer’s journey to self discovery. Thank you for guiding us through the whole process of writing! God bless!

  19. As a person who has had delusions of grandeur most of his life, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to create something based on my own belief that I was superior and more original than everyone else. Everything I ever did as a creative hobby carried with it some desire for worship, adoration, and ultimately influence minus the fact that I actually enjoyed doing it for anything else. I’m starting to realize this lately, when I’ve given up creative practices like my attempts to write fiction, music, etc. done to get control over others. I think it’s a serious mental problem and I’m trying to work it out. I need spiritual fulfillment from something else but I don’t know what yet. I have good writing skills but ultimately dread both writing and reading fiction in general, but I’ve thought about getting a job in technical writing. My only accomplishments so far have been in poetry but I’m unsure if I’m really writing it out of love or if its just another deluded attempt to gain followers.

  20. Thank you. I write every day, either on facebook or my blog. Crickets chirp on my blog, but it’s a lovely place under the stars. Did I mention it was quiet? Facebook is loud. People clamor for attention. I did too. I got caught up in the validation and the intense gratification of the thumbs up…or a few comments.

    Your manifesto is just like me coming home to a relationship with God. What matters most is not the writer’s dream of being adored, but the bohemian love story of adoring ones writing.

    I’m absolutely inspired and humbled by your manifesto.

  21. I read the manifesto and I Am A Writer a while back, and since then I’ve started writing and have recently started a blog at chrisgoodchild.co.uk

    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  22. Thanks, Jeff. Perfect. Needed to hear this inspiration to keep writing my blog – for the joy of it. Period.

  23. I am so glad I typed tips on writing a book in the search engine bar today! It seems like over the last couple of years I have done that and I have not found anything as inspirational and interesting as this. I read your manifesto and I am thankful that I found it, thank you for speaking directly to me about a dream I have had since I was a little girl. Thank you.

  24. Thank you. I downloaded The Writer’s Manifesto a month ago and knew I would read it when it was time…today it was time. Thank you once again.
    victoria

  25. Thank you.. I read you The Writer’s Manifesto and it was great. Hope that you will share more of your e-books with all of us. I would also be glad if you share about your past life on becoming a writer.

  26. Wow! That’s all I can say. The few, well-arranged, heart-felt words from your ebook ‘The Writer’s Manifesto’ shot me right where I longed needed an artistic treat. Thank you Jeff, thank you.

  27. Beautifully written. Honestly I was fighting back tears. I enjoy your work because you understand the struggle of the artist online

  28. Read your e-book twice today and found it to be very inspirational. I have had a desire to write for many years. My passion began when I was a young child but through the years I developed writer’s blocked when one of my siblings laughed and made fun of my writing and the heartfelt topics I chose to write about. I became so blocked I would hide my work or throw it away to keep others from reading what I had written. What a sad mistake that was.
    I have taken several writing courses through out my life; English Composition, Journalism, Technical Writing, and Grant Writing, but I have always shied away from Creative Writing out of fear I would be ridiculed again. Even though I’ve had 2 poems published, written an article for the Harrison Daily Times, and had an article/interview written about me, I’m still having difficulty pursuing the dream of become a writer.
    Thankfully, I have an amazing sister who saw my unfulfilled desire and my need to desperately fill that void. She encouraged me to write something, anything, just start somewhere, and build on it every day. So, I began to write and post on Facebook. I was a bit unnerved by this but I did it anyway. I was very surprised to see the positive feedback I received.
    That small step lead me to search out ways to improve my writing skills and low and behold I found you and a whole host of resources. Thank you for being so generous with your time, talent, and amazing ability to help others along the way. I am thrilled to be able to write again.
    What I have recently discovered is by stepping out of my comfort zone and facing this fear, I have developed a new sense of freedom. I now write with more confidence. I am no longer afraid to put my heartfelt thoughts and feelings out there for the world to see.

  29. I just got done reading The Writer’s Manifesto in its entirety. It made me realize that all writers that are starting out go through the same obstacles that they must overcome. The book is encouraging, inspiring and motivational. Thank you so much for sharing it and your knowledge about the writing craft.

  30. I am so thrilled to find your blog, I am looking forward to writing which has been a long time dream. Thanks

  31. Thank you for the inspiration you help me keep writing for passion being afraid to write and be notice I write for the pleasure of writing . I know I have a long way to learn as you say it is a process thankful for the great tips and your Manifesto to equip us to reach our dreams.

  32. This beautiful manifestation of what writing is, has made my day brighter. My days have been dark and I have let fear take over for too long. I now have courage to write what I’m feeling. I will not let the fear of what others think stop me from sharing what I am going through. Thank you for for this beautiful art, and making it easy to access.

  33. I love this manifesto!!! It was just what I needed to read today. I am also a dancer and this is how I feel about dancing and creating dance. Embedded in your manifesto is the permission to be free — to create and to express one’s life fully — in each and every moment. I am excited about living this way, again. 🙂

  34. Short. Simple. Elegant. Exactly what’s needed to cause mid-course corrections for any writer who needs to remember why he or she writes, including myself. Thank you for the courage to write what all writers need to hear.

  35. I’m three-quarters the way through Jeff’s book The Art of Work and have read the Manifesto three times. I feel like Samuel and how he missed the calls in the middle of the night. I’m not missing any more. I can see my calling and my journey has begun. Thank you for the push. I may not be a writer (yet) but I have things I must share.

  36. I have been a copywriter for almost 5years now and i noticed i was losing the passion for writing then i realised its cause i was writing for a reason so i revived my blog again and started writing creatively as i use to and got my mojo back. Lately, i started writing a true story though mixed with fiction to hide identities, its about me and the chemistry i had with my present ex. It drew so many fans who called or sms me to applaud the write up/ story and some advised me to turn it into a book so my search for an agent and how to write novels lead me to Jeff today and I remembered why i love writing so, visit my blog n read my own manifesto https://www.enigmawithsush.blogspot.com/2015/04/my-manifesto.html do leave your comments

  37. Dear Jeff ,Thanks for your liberal resources. I too had a fear of not validated as a writer as I write all emotional and daily life thingy.Fluffy words are totally absent in my writing.I got articles published in Country’s respected Magazine but one of my neighbors looked down upon them so I felt I am not worthy of appreciation.With this I stopped writing and felt as if whole world is laughing at me for writing such childish stuff.But few months back I came back to myself after meditation practice and started to share my writings on face book.Recently I have started to write a blog with address: shailsuman.blogspot.com .I am happy to get in touch with this community and understood that I am not alone.Thank you so much for your help.

  38. Dear Jeff: Thank you for the free resources. I read the manifesto and it has provided renewed strength to keep on creating for just the joy of it. I recently published a cookbook which is biographical and each recipe tells a story. It all started when I started to teach my young daughter how to cook. She told mom I love your stories. She urged me to write them. So as a Christmas gift I wrote a few recipes with her favorite stories and gave to her. That day everyone who came over were pouring over the little book. Many chimed in do you remember when this happened..you need to put in the book. So that little turned into a published book called “”Cooking and Telling Stories”. What I really want to do is help others how to cook in their own home…..like a cooking whisperer. I enjoy that immensely. I taught a young mother how to make stuffed flounder with spinach stuffing. She said her boys loved it and didn’t know they were eating spinach too.

  39. Thank you Jeff for your heartfelt manifesto, which certainly resonates with me. I write because I’m in my element when I’m writing. I admit though to hoping that my online writing will be read, because through communication and increased awareness, we can make positive changes in our life and society. However, recently I’ve found myself drawn to checking post viewing numbers, so your manifesto is a timely reminder to get on with the more fulfilling business of writing!

  40. Hey Jeff,

    I just watched you on SPS with Chandler Bolt. That led me to your Manifesto. I read it expecting a motivational screed on how to write three books a week, or how to blog your way to fortune in ninety days. My goodness, I was so happy to read someone writing for joy.

    I wrote this in my own frustration. https://andrewdhall.wordpress.com/2015/07/01/ten-things-to-think-about-blogging-that-you-havent-thought-before/

    Maybe I found my answer in your Manifesto. Thank you for the free book, the great idea behind it, and I’ll just follow you for more.

    Thank you.

  41. Thank you, Jeff! The Manifesto was yet another reminder of how the ego can create distance between us and our gifts. The Art of Work should arrive today as I complete The Artist’s Way. As a recovering shadow artist, I am practicing honoring my gifts and finding the courage to share them (simplysagi.com). You and your practices are part of my process for which I am grateful.

  42. Phenomenal job at defining the disease, the cause of the decay that corrodes the creative process in all of us. Thank you for returning me to the true center of why I put pen to paper: expression

  43. I remember in my high school days, the urge to always right and share it with others, to be praised. I have been trying to begin the writing I once knew that would come from my heart and not my head. The words I would love and enjoy, I could write half a book in a day but I would never finish due to me thinking others would not be interested. It is time for me to return to my love of writing and tune out the world and write for me.

  44. I write to put the words in head in order, so I better understand what I know and can clearly articulate that to help others

  45. I can’t say that I totally agree with your premise – at least from my point-of-view. I’m a writer, but first and foremost I consider myself a storyteller. The written word is simply the method I use to tell my stories. Not much point in telling a story unless you have an audience to tell it to. That’s why I can’t agree with your statement that a writer doesn’t care if he has readers.

    1. Obviously readership is important to a writer but what I think Jeff is trying to say is that a writer needs to first and foremost concentrate on telling a story. Get your ideas down on paper and find the fulfillment in that. If you focus too much on who is going to read your words, it can stifle the true creativity that you harness. Writing is about expression, even if you are the only one to read your words.

  46. This is heart warming. Very encouraging to start with writing again. But I guess I need that inspiration.
    steplostvoyage.blogspot.com

  47. I have searched for a while for content that is based around the idea of writing simply for the sake of self expression and not ‘congratulations’ as you put it. I just have to write. In fact, it has kindle in me a passion to write almost everyday, and to infuse my work in the media with my writing. In January 2016 I will launch my refreshed brand with the addition of a newsletter and blog that allows me to JUST WRITE. Thank you for being yourself and for leading the conversation for writers in this world. Writers are amazing and admire each and every one of us who are storytellers and thought leaders in our own right.

  48. It is a well know fact that 85% of users on the Internet find web sites via a search engine. It is a common trait (as much as almost 90%) to believe that the first 30 results will only be relevant to the words input in the search engine. credit card

  49. Just what I needed to read! I am a writer and sometimes still suffer the disease I call “waiting for inspiration.” Reading this I just know that I need to get on with it, not to worry about anything but getting the words out and I can always perfect it later. Thank you for such a simple but profound e-book.

  54. Jeff, seriously, thank you… I got your manifesto a few weeks ago, but only got the chance to read it now in the Christmas break. I have to admit it made me quite emotional, it freaking resonates with me man. There’s something, I dare say – divine – about that manifesto… Coz I know great scholars in the past have that same exact mentality, and they leave the control to the Divine. Their job is to write, whatever happens, happens. Thanks again, and you’ve got yourself a fan here 🙂

  55. What an great read.

    Honestly, I ended up going through the ebook several times. I am just starting out in writing, however there was a feeling of conflict inside me when it came to what to be actually writing.

    Turns out that I already have it and don’t need to conform to what others “may think of me”. Finding a niche? Don’t need it anymore.

    Liked and shared.

  56. I read the free gifts that I received when I joined the mailing list and I’ve been brought to my knees entirely. Every word screamed out to me so much so that I had to put it down every now and then to wipe away the tears.

    I am never happier than when I’m lost in my own imagination and have been a writer since as long as I can remember. I have folders full of stories, sketches and scripts stored in every free nook of my bedroom, spanning back to my childhood. Writing was never a way to pass time, it has always been an innate necessity. It is only when I write, can I truly be honest and I believe that every great piece of writing, regardless of genre, stems from authenticity. I believe the only way to write, is by putting a little bit of yourself into it.

    Though I spent much of my time growing up alone in my make believe worlds and despite always getting top grades in creative writing in school and in college, I never seriously considered a career in writing, I never dreamt of publishing anything, even posting this comment now would have been inconceivable. That is until a year and a half ago, when I had a complete breakdown. Something inside of me had finally snapped, however with the help of my therapist I discovered that I hadn’t been authentic with myself for years. It was then I made some radical changes and finally worked up the courage to call myself a writer.

    Since that episode I am beginning to believe in myself and my writing. I have written a novel that I had been building in the back of my mind for ten years, I have started writing a new novel, I’ve dappled in poetry and have posted content to my blog. I still haven’t made it but this manifesto has filled me with so much passion, inspiration and comfort. It has willed me to keep on going

    https://jadedcreatives.blogspot.ie/p/the-enigma-of-gratitude.html

    1. I wrote a reply on your blog, but something went wrong and it was wiped out. I was nearly distraught as I wrote what was in my heart and to see it disappear into virtual air was terrifying! I LOVE your blog! I wish you best of luck and will love to read more!

      1. Thank you so much Izabella x it’s a year into my blog and my tribe is growing 🙂 your support is so heartening and it’s so wonderful to meet another creative soul

  57. Jeff, this was a beautiful read.

    The Writers Manifesto has been sitting in my computer for weeks, and only today I read it. I thought it would be a long eBook and that I would need days to go through it, but not.

    A single message: Falling back in love with writing. With beautiful words that show us the example to follow.

    I’m keeping this Manifestor near my heart, and will think about it when writing.

    Thank you.

  58. Jeff, this is amazing. Thank you for sharing your journey.

    I wrote my own manifesto here: https://bit.ly/1V6NITK

    Identifying myself as a writer and seeking out my calling has certainly been a journey – one I am still on! I’m currently reading The Art of Work, and I just want to thank you for the impact you’ve already had on my life. I’m sure it will only continue to grow!

  59. As someone just starting, thank you! You definitely spoke to some of my fears and worries about getting started. Well done!

  60. I didn’t come across this book by accident, I found it when I was on the edge of giving it all up. I was in danger of reverting back to bad habits and stumbling back down the spiral that lead to darkness. Instead, I looked online for salvation and came across 7 Signs you’ve Found your Calling and the Writer’s Manifesto.
    I was completely captivated and elated and the flow of tears was stronger than that which came with the eternal sadness.
    I have since developed a far more liberating attitude to my writing and have produced a short ebook, which I’d love to share with anyone suffering from low self esteem and self doubt, or anybody who fails to find fulfilment in their lives. I was trapped in a pit of self loathing and disappointment. But with some soul searching and some practical changes in my life, I have found a sense of peace and contentment.

    https://jadedcreatives.blogspot.ie/p/ebookshttpsdrivegooglecomfiled0b.html

  61. Thank you for this booklet. It’s reinforced what I’m playing with at the moment anyway. 🙂 You are so right: Promotion chows away precious writing time. One can do one or the other.

  62. Thank you Jeff. That was really comforting. I’m not even sure If I’m a writer but just wanted to improve my writing, and was thinking that starting a blog might help. The thought really scares me because this is out my comfort zone. Also unsure about what I’ll write but I know somehow that the inspiration will come as I start. Also trying to find what I’m really passionate about and this journey might lead me. – Esmer

    1. I must admit, my thoughts were trailing along the same lines as yours Esmer.. I’ve always loved to write, but like Jeff also said, was too scared to call myself a writer. I’ve started numerous blogs and abandoned them with the excuse that I have ADHD and lost concentration or interest or just plainly forgot about it.
      But the truth is – apart from actually having ADHD – that I was scared of not living up to expectations.. others, but also my own.
      But somehow, reading & writing has always found a way to find me.

  63. So inspiring! Every sentence is a quotable quotes. The flow of words is seamless. I have to jot down the whole book. This book made my day!

  64. I’m looking for examples of the manifesto Jeff encourages us to write. I’m NOT talking about his book called The Writer’s Manifesto. What I’m talking about a document he encouraged us to write during one of his webinars. The structure of the manifesto:
    — Pick a battle
    — Solution
    — Call to action

    Does anyone have a copy of theirs that they could share with me?

    Thanks for your help

  65. This manifesto is awesome!

    I have a blog. It’s not successful. I originally found Goins because I was looking for an explanation of SEO writing. My first step is to follow his suggestions.
    If anyone cares to offer suggestions about my blog, please do.

  66. Two years ago, acting on strong intuition, I built a collaborative website as a place for me and others to write, specifically in a way that moves us out of fear. Then I focused on having a baby and ferrying him through his first year. Now, as I return to my work, I have been finding myself all blustery and tangled in trying to “figure it out.” I needed this manifesto to remind myself of my own, and to let that lead me- rather than searching for some formula. I’ve linked directly to the manifesto. Thanks for your work!! https://www.bombilore.com/a-manifesto/

  67. I love everything about the manifesto – from the simplicity and yet carefully chosen words, to the structure and presentation. I think even that part is sometimes easily overlooked. I am one of those who often think that I am a very unique writer until I start reading and then am horribly reminded and yet also satisfied that others also see the world through creative eyes. I am both alarmed and comforted by the thought that I’m not so different after all, and yet, I am who I am. I am a writer.
    Your words are not just inspiring in terms of my writing, but also any creativity. Our lives are artworks, master pieces. Each flaw, each accomplishment adds another blotch (or pixel) and when the time comes to zoom out, a wondrous picture emerges.
    Thank you for responding to your responsibility – your gift.

  68. Jeff Goins, you are really impacting people and empowering them to pursue their goals. Thank you so much for everything you do. It’s a very significant role that you play, as you meet people where they are in their busy schedules. As your words come across our computer screens or devices, it’s a pleasure and a joy to open up these posts and be reminded that it is possible, and we can do this. Thank you!

  69. thank you so much for that reminder i really needed it! the manifesto helped me find my way again! i had forgotten the real reason i was writing in the first place i was so worried about publishing and it was killing my stories. I have a story to tell, every book i read now is a reminder that im not working on mine, your absolutely right. a writer must write. =)

  70. I just started following you on Facebook and reading your blog and stuff, but everything I’ve read so far speaks to me from the bottom of my heart! Thank you! Thank you for your job and the encouragement you give us! I feel the energy to pursue my dream now – TO WRITE!

  71. Love this!! It seems like everything you say is how I’ve felt for a years. Thank you for your talent and showing up.
