The Best Way to Become a Full-Time Writer
“How do you become a full-time writer?” That’s a question I hear all the time.Three years ago, I quit my day job and achieved something most writers only fantasize about: I became a full time writer.
It wasn’t easy though. While I enjoyed the chance to do what I loved, I lived on pennies for the first year. Since then, I’ve talked to NY Times Bestselling authors, editors at major publishing houses, successful freelance journalists, and even a few full-time bloggers. I’ve discovered a few secrets—and started powerful habits—that have helped me support my family and my art.
Whether you want to be a full-time writer or just want to share your art with the world, the Story Cartel Course will help you increase your audience, create industry connections, and build a strong foundation for your writing career.
