Starting a Writing Business? Grab My Book, Write Like You Mean It
Not too long ago, a fellow writer thanked me for helping get her freelance writing business off the ground. Admittedly, all I'd done was answer a few questions here and there and sprinkle in some encouragement. But she was adamant that I'd done way more than that.
It was then that she finally spilled the beans that she'd finished reading my book, Write Like You Mean It: Mastering Your Passion for the Written Word, and put many of my tips to work!
Not only was she writing better and with purpose, but she was getting clients.
I listened to her every word as she explained how great things were going. She also had so many additional questions. So, we ended up talking for several hours.
She picked my brain about literally everything, and I could tell how passionate she was about continuing her newfound momentum. I couldn't have been more elated for her. I wrote this book to educate and inspire any writer who picked it up. And at least in my head, I imagined thousands upon thousands of writers would sink their teeth into it. It didn't matter if they were starting a writing business, working up the courage to apply for a writing gig at a local magazine, or reinventing themselves with other writing projects.
She was perhaps the most heartfelt of all the positive reviews I’d received up to that point.
Which brings me to my point ...
If You're Starting a Writing Business, Read My Book!
With Write Like You Mean It, I talk about the world of writing from my own experiences. I expand upon the conversations that other writers like Stephen King, William Zinsser, Anne Lamott, and so many others started well before I came along. I also speak to all writers and share what I’ve learned on my journey to mastering my passion for the written word.
That includes journalists, bloggers, fiction and nonfiction writers, creative writers, and those who want to start a writing business. It also includes up-and-comers who aren’t quite sure if they have the chops to write or question if they are brave enough to put their work out there.
Just a few of the topics discussed in this book include:
Overcoming your fear of writing
What writer's block is telling you
How to become a successful freelancer
Tips on how to write fiction and nonfiction
How to be a better editor
The art of quality storytelling
How to get published
And so much more ...
For all of them, I share tips on being a better writer today than you were yesterday.
