This is a manual about freelance writing with a difference. It won’t tell you how to write or what to write. It assumes you know these things already. It doesn’t set out to equip you for a brief period of freelancing. It will, on the other hand, tell you how to go about living a writer’s life in a practical way – how to plan ahead, how to shape your career, how to find clients and how to deal with the money. It will tell you how to make a life out of writing without falling into the many little traps that are set for us once we embark on the idea.
If you are thinking of changing your life, you may be tempted to buy many other books about how to write, or taking the first technical steps into becoming a freelancer – but this book will set you on the path to live that life.
