Get A Freelance Life

As you can see from my "What I'm Reading" spot over on the right column, I'm currently reading "Get A Freelance Life" and as someone who has read quite a few books on the subject,I have to say this is an absolute best in class.

This is one of the most honest, straightforward and complete books about being a freelance writer on the shelves. It's a book that will benefit not only a person new to the field, but serve as a refresher for veterans. Every "nut and bolt" is covered, from getting an assignment to research to writing to editing and working with editors to payment to common terms and phrases to record-keeping.

There's no "pie on the sky" fluff in this book. It lays everything out in plain English and where it must use some industry term it fully explains that term.

If, like me, you have an interest in working toward a freelance writing career, this book should be your very first investment in that career.
