A new book, “The Story of the Traveling Writer: A Journey Through the World of Talent, Business, and Entertainment” is getting rave reviews from both readers and critics.
In it, author John J. DiVito lays out the journey of a young writer working in a variety of creative industries, from writing to marketing, and how he has come to be recognized as one of the best writers in the world.
DiVaitto was a founding member of the U.S. Travel Writers Association and was one of three winners of the National Travel Writing Awards, according to the organization.
The book, published by the Travel Writers Institute, is written in an engaging and accessible style that will appeal to readers from the ages of six to 45.
“There are so many people who can be successful in the travel industry because they know how to be a good writer, and I think it’s important to give them a chance,” DiVaitto told CBC News.
Di Vaitto’s journey has been a success in part because he is an unabashed fan of the craft.
He has been nominated for the John C. Maxwell Award for best new author for “The Adventurer,” and he is currently a finalist for the Arthur Miller Award for the best new writer.
“My goal with this book was to tell the story of my own journey to a better life,” DiVitos told CBC.
“I’m very proud of the book, but I also feel like I have a lot to say.
I feel like there’s a lot of wisdom in the book that people have forgotten about.”
DiVaitzo’s story of his life began when he was a teenager living in Toronto.
He said he struggled with depression and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in his late teens.
The condition had made him miserable, and he struggled to find work as a waiter at a local coffee shop.
He was also working as a sales associate at the Toronto Public Library and as a bartender at the restaurant.
The stress of the job and the lack of support from his family made him question his creative direction and career path.
DiViitos said he was struggling with depression, and was feeling suicidal.
DiVito found himself struggling with the same problem.
He began taking medication and taking a break from writing.
“It took off from there,” Divito said.
“Then I found myself getting back into writing and really feeling a lot more creative.
It felt good to get back in the swing of things.
I thought it was going to take a long time to really be able to move forward, but it was.”
The book includes a look at DiVittos career as a writer, a story that will be particularly poignant for DiVitios parents, who were trying to juggle the demands of their busy work schedules and their son’s struggles with mental health.
Di Vittos says he’s thankful for the support from those around him and his family, and that he is fortunate to have been able to help others with his writing.
He says that the book has been well received by his family and friends.
“I’ve been told that I’ve been a hero to the people that I work with,” Di Vitos wrote.
“As a writer I’ve never been able just to put that kind of praise into words, but that’s a very powerful message.
I’m grateful for the outpouring of support.”
DiVitoes story of a talented young writer who overcame mental illness, struggled with mental illness and was a hero is told from the perspective of a struggling professional.
Di Viitos has been traveling with his family to a number of locations across the world to tell his story.
Di Vivitos says his wife is also taking the same journey as his family.
“We’re doing the same thing that he was doing in Toronto, where we’re going to places like France, and the Netherlands, and Iceland,” Di Vaitos explained.
“We’re going out to countries that he hasn’t visited in his life, but he’s really looking forward to it.”
Di Vito said his family is also enjoying the travel.
“They’ve been able at least to travel together for the first time and see their grandparents, and see his parents and grandpa,” Di Vivito said of his family traveling together.
“And then they’re in New Orleans for the funeral of their grandfather, and they’re all in the same boat.”
The author has written for magazines such as Glamour, Elle, and Vanity Fair.
Di Vegitos is also the author of a number books, including “The Traveling Photographer” and “The Ultimate Guide to Writing,” which was recently released in paperback.
