Getting Started as a Home-based Writer (chap 1)

In chapter 1, Parker discusses a number of important ideas – but many of them are ones I’ve heard before. Namely, “Until you make it, fake it,” the idea that corporate writing is the best way to pay the bills, and networking. However, there were also quite a few new useful tidbits.

She discusses:
-How to gain skills you don’t have
-How to gain professional associations
-The importance writers writing a business plan & looking into legal requirements

I’ve used this first chapter to set myself a series of goals (see my goals page, which will be updated regularly).

I’m going to continue applying to freelance jobs that have been posted online and work on a business plan outline. I’ll keep you (and whoever reads this) up-to-date on my progress and what’s going on!
