Synopsis

How to Get a Break as a Writer Making Money from Your Words and Ideas: A Seriously Useful Author's Guide by Neil Nixon

How to Get a Break as a Writer deals with an area of writing for a living that remains virtually untouched by most other titles. This is a book about getting breaks, making your own luck and getting hopeful writers to the stage of being taken seriously. It is not a book that tells you how to write your novel, but instead focusses on the range of paid writing opportunities that exist for budding writers. Honest, insightful and challenging, How To Get a Break as a Writer tells it like it is, pulls no punches and delivers a series of chapters setting out the problems faced by aspiring writers. Packed with examples of success and failure, How to Get a Break as a Writer could be your ticket to a new dimension in your writing life.
