Writer? Author? ... Here's an interesting viewpoint on what it takes to make it today.
We know this, but this blog post excerpt, from Cheryl Pickett restates the facts in a direct way.
So, let me ask you.... my friends and clients who've successfully published this year, I'm sure this will resonate with you. She's right... so how many hats are you wearing to keep your book alive?
From Cheryl Pickett, TheNonfictionZone.com
"The biggest rule change? Unless you are writing just for a hobby, you need to wear much more than your writer hat. You’ll need to write, potentially publish, and definitely market. Bottom line, you are a small or micro business owner, not just an author. And that means you need to do all the things that go with running a business."
