The Working Writer’s Guide examines the professional life of those who have chosen to pursue writing as a career. People often believe that either that all published authors earn millions or that it’s impossible to make a living as a writer. It’s certainly possible to make a living based on your writing, but a number of different revenue streams are required.
In reality, most full-time writers have multiple sources of income. These include book sales, royalties, teaching, workshops, coaching, editing, public speaking, events, websites, social media, and business and technical writing.
