Simon Rose has published quite a few books, mostly for children, both fiction and nonfiction. He has also written numerous articles and several self-help guides to assist the fledgling and the established writer hone their skills as a writer and actually make some money from it. In his book, “The Working Writer’s Guide: Making a Living as a Published Author and Professional Writer”, Simon takes the reader/writer through many possible means of making money and making a career out of writing. There are the obvious suggestions: doing paid speaking engagements in various public venues (including schools if your book is directed to a young audience), and writing articles for paying publications (both print and online). Then he suggests other possible income generating sources: writing content for advertising material for different companies, content editing, proofreading and copy editing the works of other writers as well as documents for various companies. There’s also money to be made giving writing workshops, teaching writing to students of all ages and running summer writing camps for young people.
The bottom line is that there are means to make a writing career feasible even if you never do become a best selling author. But, like Simon says, “You may of course become very successful and not need this advice, but most authors engage in some or all of the activities described above in order to earn a living. Enjoy the journey.” And that’s what’s most important: we as writers must enjoy our writer’s journey.
A great resource for beginning and established writers.
