How to Become a Fulltime Freelance Writer
The Writer Books, April, 2003.
Paperback, 223 pages.
Many people desire to become a fulltime freelance writer; the thought of being able to work for yourself from your own home is compelling. In this book, Michael A. Banks, a successful freelance writer himself, helps writers understand what it takes to become a fulltime freelance writer. Banks covers everything the freelance writer will need to know -- from what it takes to be a freelance writer (including writing ability and attitude) to how to set up your freelance business and manage budgets and taxes. Other topics covered in the book include keeping records and tracking submissions, finding time to write, writer's block, finding markets and agent-writer and editor-writer relationships. Banks doesn't sugar coat it for would-be freelancers; he explains how freelancing can be an arduous and unusual occupation. But if you have what it takes to stick with it, then Banks has provided the road map for you. Highly recommended.
