Hugh Howey - So You Want to be a Writer


quote:

Sitting in your underwear, hearing voices, talking to people who are not there, mumbling to yourself, Googling how to dispose of bodies and the firing rate of an uzi submachine gun.
Assuming this sounds like the ideal life for you—and you don’t want to be certifiably crazy but only a little crazy—then the life of the professional writer is what you’re after. And I’m going to tell you how to make it happen.



That's the start of a long blog post that really goes into the nitty gritty on how to make it as author.

It's not pretty. It's ripping away illusions.

And I know I'm not putting in enough work... but then, I'm still not giving up, and that takes me half-way.

Another awesome post by him, this time about the State of the Industry.

And if anyone knows the ins and outs of the publishing industry, it's Hugh. Plus he has friends in trad pub houses...

So here you go:

The short of it: Indie authors are doing even better than ever.
