Make a writing career out of your hobby or day job – Ep 22 FREE podcast for writers

Write what you know. While I’d disagree that this is an absolute rule (let’s not get into that right now), it is nevertheless a sound strategy for developing a writing career.

Your profession could keep you well supplied with material for books.
