Iam writing a book

A very helpful article, thanks! I’ve been trialing editors for my current romance WIP, including industry stalwarts from The Big Four, to freelancers and hobbyists, *budget* options and the gurus who cost a pretty penny. From 9 to 5 I’m an editor myself, so it’s been great experiencing the process from a writer’s perspective. I’ve documented some tips below on what to look for in an editor (and what should send you running), which you might find interesting.

Why do people who write articles likes these always use the scare tactic of a person not being able to make a living as a writer? Is everyone blind? I say that because millions of people makes great money writing. A lot of these “helpful posts” are founded on personal experience. YOU find it difficult to break bank as a writer, but I can name people who I know, personally, that are rich off of there writing. Of course it took hard work, but misleading words like “don’t expect to get rich off your writing,” or “don’t expect to make a lot of money writing” pisses me off… (smh)

Good badass points, Brian. However, you left out the promotional phase that comes after writing and publication. That can easily take more time and create as much stress and frustration as the other two phases. If you’re lucky enough to get published the traditional way, you’ll find out your publisher expects you to do most of your own marketing and promotion. And if you’re self-publishing, you will have to do all of it. This involves learning the equivalent of a new career overnight, so start planning well before the launch date.

I’m not a reader nor am I a writer. I must say that in my quest for understanding how to tell my own story, I’ve come across your tips and I must say, that I’ve enjoyed reading it. I have started and have been encouraged since I was in my early teens to write my life’s story, but I do get cold feet whenever I get started. I also tend to ramble on and loose my focus. Anyhow, lately, I have a burning desire to write my story, I don’t have the means hire professionals or the appetite to read on how to write. I feel like if I do have to read on how to write, I will never write. I might just go with the flow and write cold turkey. I figured since I never read a novel, that I cannot copy from anyone and whatever I write will be coming from me, mine, pulling from way back God knows where. Then I will leave the the rest up to the editors. I mean, I see some crazy stuff out there and the Authors are doing well.
Good luck and happy writing.
