Free Copy of Donald Miller’s Book Write your Story


Chris Brogan made a video of Donald’s Book called A Million Miles in a Thousand Years.

Chris has asked the following:

” I’d love for you to write a quick blog post about the importance of story in your life. That’s it. If you want, link back to, so I’ll see the trackbacks as well.

When you’ve submitted your post, fill out this form, and give us the URL where we can see the story.

It’s a great book and deserves a lot of attention in 2010. I hope you decide to check it out.

Now I may be late in writing to share such a great book, but on my way to researching today this book was called to my attention.  I do not have this book yet…but I plan on it.

I have written on the topic of “A story you want to write.”  In my opinion if you just WRITE and get the first step out of the way, which is writing about all of the people who are naysayers in your life and putting it away-you will be free to write what you want to write.  It is in letting go of those negative thoughts and people in your life who hinder your growth as a writer, blogger, publisher or what have you that is your key to success.

I think we all have a story to write, a story to be published and a story to tell.  I will be reading this book and adding to this post at a later time.  If you wish, leave a comment, question or observation and Blessings to All of You (My Readers).

From Publishers Weekly

Miller, the accidental memoirist who struck gold with the likable ramble Blue Like Jazz, writes about the challenges inherent in getting unstuck creatively and spiritually. After Jazz sold more than a million copies but his other books didn’t follow suit, he had a classic case of writer’s block. Two movie producers contacted him about creating a film out of his life, but Miller’s initial enthusiasm was dampened when they concluded that his real life needed doctoring lest it be too directionless for the screen. Real stories, he learned, require characters who suffer and overcome. In desultory fashion, Miller sets out to change his own life—to be the kind of guy who seeks out his father, chases the girl and undertakes a quest. Along the way, he comes to understand God as a master storyteller who doesn’t quite control where his characters are going. An unexpected bonus of this book is Miller’s insights into the writing process. Readers who loved Blue Like Jazz will find here a somewhat more mature Miller, still funny as hell but more concerned about making a difference in the world than in merely commenting on it. (Oct.)
