BE the Writer You Are
Find out where you are to determine where to go as a writer
I’ve written for you a writer’s guide that cuts through the buzz and noise of writing, pitching, publishing and marketing books. As a writer and a teacher, this is my personal explanation of some of the most confusing aspects of writing. It’s about the business of being an author.
In this book, I discuss the basics of the writer’s craft and essential tools I feel every writer must have, including some of the best insider information – like my organizational process that helps you to file your ideas and find them in under 30 seconds.

What People Say About Be the Writer you Are
“I just finished reading Chazda Albright’s e-book, Be The Writer You Are. While I do a lot of freelance writing, my current project represents my first attempt at writing an illustrated storybook for children.
I had read several other books on the topic, and each one left me feeling more confused and overwhelmed than the last. Ms. Albright’s book contained all of the information I needed, and was presented in a form that was comprehensive, organized, and fun to read.
In addition to the logistics involved in creating interesting stories and characters, Ms. Albright challenges writers to explore their motivations for writing, their unique strengths and weaknesses, and deftly weaves it all into a plan that sets up each writer for success.
If you are one of those rare individuals who has this whole writing thing figured out, but can’t market your way out of a paper bag, have no fear! Ms. Albright addresses all of this as well. From press releases, to book signings, to agents, to interviews, this gem of a book covers it all.
Even the most reticent new writer should feel empowered to promote their work with confidence. Truly no stone is left unturned; so if like me, you own a dusty collection books on writing for young readers, feel free to donate them to your local library. Be The Writer You Are is the only resource you will need!”Lynn Kupkee
