I hear it all the time, “I wish I could write.” What the person actually means: “I write all the time, but I haven’t a clue about what it takes to be a writer.”
There are countless books on becoming a better author – but there are few on the actual business of writing. You may have never considered the importance of treating your writing career as a business. When you think of writing as your job, you begin to realize that managing a writing career involves the same steps as planning and creating a start-up business.
Building a writing business requires intentional steps to get the project from the brain to the pen and then, to print. This book offers you a process for creating a writing career and business by working through questions and exercises designed to focus beyond the creative aspects of writing to the business.
You will become a successful author if you treat writing as a business – purposefully holding yourself accountable for goals and your efforts. I know what you’re thinking, “I know how to write, what do I know about running a business?”
This book is for you! If you find it easy to put words to paper, but dread managing a business, this book will teach you how to form a business around your writing to get your book published and on the shelves of bookstores nationwide.
Your Success as a Writer is Dependent on Your Writing Skill and Attitude.

She was honest about what it takes to write a book. She broke it down into steps and made sure understood that you weren't just going to submit and magically money would appear. Like any job you have to work at it.
