This week’s recommended reading is a non-fiction title, The Enemy Within: A History of Espionage, by Terry Crowdy.
Check out my book review in the video below.
Many people think that it is awesome to write for a living. I won’t say it’s a bad way to live, but making a career in writing takes time and effort. And making money at it also takes time and effort.
There is an awful lot of advice out there (you know, “out there” 🙂 ) about what it takes to make a living as a writer. For my own part, luck has played a huge role in my own writing journey. However, you know what they say about making your own luck. The answer is, “Yes, you can!”
Part of deciding what to write and publish involves thinking about who you’re writing for. Even though writing is a personal process, a professional writer doesn’t create work in a vacuum. The whole point is to develop a readership or what many would refer to as your tribe.
This week’s video is the third I’ve done about writing tips. In this case, I focus on whether one should write for “the market” or focus more on developing your own tribe or readership.
