Writing Tips

Asking Questions For a Change: Free E-Book

Earlier this year I wrote a series of posts on how to ask better questions.  I’ve now edited the material into a free book that’s yours to take away and pass on to others:

Asking Questions for a Change: How To Ask Purposeful Questions

Asking Questions for a Change

It’s free.  Just click to download the pdf file.

If you could spread the word with an e-mail, a stumble, a link or a tweet out… it would be much appreciated.

Joanna Young, The Confident Writing Coach
Because our words count

PS If you missed them the first time round I’ve published two other e-books:

Powerful Writing in 30 Words or Less

The Courage to Hear Yourself Sing (e-book on authentic writing)

    Hi Joanna,

    I successfully downloaded the ‘Asking Question’ e-book but can’t seem to download the other two books. Is there some other way I can get them?

    Ulla, thanks, I would be interested in any feedback you have too.

    Pelf, cheers!

    Thanks Alina. I realised that I’d got a lot of good feedback from the series, and that it would make for a nice e-book.

    Rachael, hope you find it of value :-)

    Samar - it seems to be working okay for me.

    Any one else having a problem?

    Let me know if it contines to be an issue.

    Impressive, thanks for sharing… how about that, I didn’t know you wrote other e-books, I picked them up, looking forward to reading them this weekend. :)

    What tools do you use to make your PDF e-books? I’m planning on writing one.

    Miguel, I hope you’ll find them useful. Basic answer to the question is that I use a word template then convert to pdf using my adobe software. It’s expensive, but I use it for other things too.

    There’s a bigger answer though about some of the things to bear in mind - will try and turn it into a post.

    Davina, thank you so much for taking the time to come back and share that feedback. Much appreciated.

    Congratulation for the new ebook, Joanna and I’ve read it through…

    I’m sure that you’ve tried to keep it as simple as you can, isn’t it? I loved the 5 main tips and it’s very inspiring indeed!

    Wilson, thank you, and yes I did try and keep it simple. You might just be tuning into the theme I’m going to be exploring next month at Confident Writing… watch this space!

    Thanks for sharing the tips on asking questions Joanna. These fit perfectly with an article I’ll be sharing a little later this week on Slacker Manager.
