This book has a practical guide with lots of great information for those who want to transition from a 9-5 career to freelance writing.

The format is especially well done. At the end of most chapters, you are encouraged to add to your freelance business plan. I strongly recommend you do this work. By the end of the book you will have a list of steps to take towards fulltime writing.

Most chapters also have a list of resources so you can do extra research on your own. The resources are very helpful and range from websites to books.

While you can find a lot of this information on The Renegade Writer website, this is a much easier format to use. Putting the necessary steps, the resources, and the business plan exercises in one place is a huge benefit.

All new freelancers will find something of benefit in this easy-to-read book.

This is a great resource guide for people looking to break into writing and for those who write that might want to branch out. Each chapter follows the same pattern and has explanations, examples, and resources to get you started in that writing genre. What I really love are the additional writing voices at the end of every chapter that showcase how other working writers managed to overcome similar obstacles or break into a market.

My review title really should be "Resources, Resources, Resources." This book is really more than what is between the digital covers. Each chapter has links to free downloads and websites for more information on the individual topic. She also gives practical advice about financing this career move, working with (or circumventing) current bosses, and making a simple business plan.

Overall, I was very pleased with the book and can't wait to put it to use.

Looking for a detailed road map to show you how to get out of the 9-5 rat race into the lucrative field of freelance writing? Meet Linda Formichelli, a successful freelance writer who can shorten your learning curve about how to get paid (and paid well) for your writing. Formichelli has written a practical how-to guide packed with her own insights, suggestions, and comments from 20 other successful freelance writers plus a ton resources. She writes, "If you're a good writer, persistent, and professional, you can earn $50,000, $100,000, $200,000 per year and more. And yes, I do know someone who earns over $200,000 per year writing magazine articles and corporate communications." This kind of sustainable income takes a business plan, a willingness to work hard, a road map, and a mentor.This book is an excellent springboard for all of that. Highly recommended!

I'm a huge fan of Linda Formichelli's first Renegade Writer book The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success (The Renegade Writer's Freelance Writing series) and her daily e-mails, so I was ecstatic to read her new book. This is the book I wish I'd had when I first started my freelance writing career. The book is a step-by-step guide to how to start or improve your freelance career. It is an honest, open portrayal of freelance writing and indicators about when and how to know if you're ready for a freelancing career.

What many freelance writers (myself included) experience difficulty with confidence about the types of articles and clients you can write when starting out. Linda gives the reader the confidence to believe in his or her skills and reach for clients and jobs.

Chapters I found most helpful were the ones addressing how to structure a day, what to do if you interact with an editor you just can't please and how to find and pitch to the right editors. The book is like a roadmap to a rewarding career as a freelancer. I highly recommend it!

This is one of the most valuable books either a freelance writer or aspiring freelance writer could purchase. I've been freelancing fulltime for just over 7 years and can verify that Linda Formichelli has packed this book with down-to-earth guidance and insight on what it takes to be a successful freelance writer. I used her other books when I first started building my fulltime writing business. Excellent insight - awesome resources in the book, too!

What I appreciated most about this book are the details of each stage of the business, and the tone. Linda has tremendous expertise, but she doesn't come off as pretentious. In fact, Linda is authoritative yet welcoming; straightforward yet encouraging. "Write Your Way . . ." has benefitted me in three ways. For one I now have a more solid and expanded business plan thanks to the outline Linda provides. Secondly, I've land two new assignments since reading this book. Thirdly and most importantly, I have more self confidence. I highly recommend it for anyone in need of solid instruction and direction with a side of genuine encouragement in their career as a freelance writer. Thanks Linda!!!

Linda outlines the reasons why many of us are afraid to chase what we know we should be doing with ourselves. This book gives concrete, tangible ways to forge a new path, one that we should be marching on all along.

This is a solid resource - and a good kick in the pants for anyone dreaming about writing professionally.

One thing that would make this book five stars, however, (at least from me) is if the author would talk more about how specifically clips can be most effectively organized and presented. Is it best to have a hub page that links to posts online, host the articles as PDFs, etc. Is there a way to be more successful at this part of the game or some definite no-nos? Such info would be useful.
