Gettin' Paid

So one of the things that makes its rounds in my circles is how difficult it is to make a living as a writer of fiction. I once bemoaned that fate to Mr. Sawyer and he, once again, called bullshit on it. It can be done. It takes dedication, hard work, and a few other things (not to mention a dash of luck) and we talk all about it in this conversation.

Let us know what you think, particularly if you disagree and why.

PS – Here’s part one.

  1. Interesting conversation. I find it interesting that the public seems to think that ideas have great value, but the writing, the realization of those ideas, is often sold so very, very cheaply.Also made me realize that I have only one completed work right now. It has been podcast, but I haven't really thought about shopping it around to sell it…Doc

  2. Indeed. If a writer's not careful they can sell all their rights to a work for a song.You should totally start shopping it. What is it?

  4. Agreed. if a writer isn’t careful they can really end up giving things away for all intents and purposes.

    You should totally start shopping it around. What is it?
