About the Author
There are times when life doesn’t turn out as you expected. Then there are times when life punches you in the gut, takes your wallet, and
leaves you hanging upside down by your toenails.
2009 was one of
those times for me (the gut-punching kind). My construction business
faltered after the housing bubble burst, and my wife and I found
ourselves in $50,000 worth of debt. Then came the toughest decision of
our young lives: we left the community we loved and moved into my
parents' basement in search of a simpler life.
Part of the change
included laying aside my aspirations for wealth and taking up the
vocation of my dreams: I would try to make money writing full time. This
is the story of my first year doing exactly that.
I would try to build a life out of words.
included in the book are nine essays from folks who make money writing –
they share unique tips on how to find writing work and how to improve
your craft. Contributors include Andi Cumbo, Bryan Allain, Ed Cyzewski,
Jason Boyett, Jeff Goins, Jennifer Luitwieler, Ken Mueller, Kristin
Tennant, and Stacy Barton.
