How To Start Your Freelance Writing Career From Scratch: No money, No contacts, No problem Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Another thing I really liked about this book were the extra resources that the author has shared, such as some free online writing courses which are definitely going to help me out a lot. Overall I am very happy, definitely worth the investment - I know I will save a lot of time and money now that I have read this
That said, I'll review its style and presentation first. From the first paragraph of the introduction, it's obvious a professional wrote this book. I've recently read other works where reading the material was painful; not so with this, it's crafted by someone skilled in the art of writing!
Secondly, it has a great deal of helpful information presented in a matter of fact manner: no hyperbole here! Instead she simply lets her words speak and they speak with the clarity and power of experience. While talking with a few other software engineers several months ago, we talked about where we wanted to work. Someone quipped he didn't want to work where he was the best engineer in the company. I agreed with him. I'm inherently lazy and selfish in that regard, I like having someone around more knowledgeable than me on a given topic. While I would never write a book on writing because I'm not a good writer, Karen is, she's doing what I aspire to do. For that reason alone, her book is worth reading.
It's short, as long as a novella, but don't let that dissuade you from buying it. Like Shakespeare, I aspire to the saying, "brevity is the soul of wit." You'll read the book in an afternoon and spend years mastering the material. If you are a writer or an aspiring writer, you deserve and need to have it in your library.
Karen explains in a plain and concise language the steps you have to take, the resources you
have available for you to use, the pitfalls to avoid, so you can consistently start and grow as
a freelance writer.
I always liked writing but never thought I could make a living with it. After reading Karen's book,
I feel enthusiastic and motivated to start. Thank you Karen for sharing your experience and
advises with us.
