Congratulations to the Winners of AWAI’s Live the Writer’s Life Giveaway

Over the last two weeks we asked AWAI members what living the writer’s life meant to them …

Hundreds of people posted their “version,” and just as we suspected, we found that the writer’s life truly means many things to many people.

As a thank you for participating, we randomly selected 6 winners using Random.org to win one of 6 incredible prizes. (You can learn more about the giveaway details and prizes here.)

Congratulations to the six winners …

Besides the perks that come with working for yourself, living the writer's life to me means the ability to utilize the power of words. Ever since I was little, I've loved to read and it was always amazing to me how whole worlds could be created in my head just from words in a book. I thought what fun it must be to be a writer – and gave novel writing a brief try as a teen. So now I'm learning a different power of the written word from AWAI – and it's still amazing! – LydiaM
The writers life is to me, is to make sense of the world they live in, and understand the characters around them while living as vividly as they can. – Jennifer
Living the Writer's Life means I can express myself both with words and with my artwork in my own time and space. – Beth Genson
A Writers life means freedom. Freedom to create, to live, to dream, to fulfill dreams, to feel … to simply be. – legion150
Living the writer's life means that wherever and whenever, I have the gift and the power to move people to: help others, do good, laugh, cry, love. What's better than that? – Rose J.
Living the Writer's Life means being able to express myself with pen and paper (or maybe by keyboard and computer screen). Writing is a useful tool, allowing me to live out my fantasy on paper. – Annette D
