Description

Would you like to leave your job and make a living with your writing? This book will show you how.

I spent 13 years working as a cubicle slave in the corporate world. I was miserable in my job and my creativity was stunted by the crushing daily grind. Then I started writing books and blogging, using my words to create products and attract readers.

In September 2011, I left my corporate job to become a full-time author and creative entrepreneur and since then I've grown my business year by year, all based on my writing. More importantly, I'm finally living the happy life I always wanted.

I'm not a Kindle or blogging millionaire and this is not a get rich quick scheme. But I will share with you how I make a multi-six-figure income from writing books, blogging and marketing in an ethical manner. We're living in the best time ever to make a living with your writing!

Book or Ad?

What did you like best about How to Make a Living with Your Writing? What did you like least?

Information is decent, but I couldn't past all the references the author makes to her website and teaching programs. I felt like I was listening to a long advertisement for her web-related business. Next time, just put all that stuff at the end, or reference once, but not throughout the book.

A lot of honest advice

I found Joanna Penn through one of the creative entrepreneur coaches I trust the most, Marc McGuinness. I'd listened to a podcast where he interviewed her and I thought "Oh she sounds like she's won't b s you" I liked her style and felt the info she gave was straight up and not trying to oversell you some formula. So I went and checked out her website and found good solid blog posts and videos on there too.
By the time I listened to this book, I'd listened to quite a few of the 'great' ones out there on writing and some I liked a lot more than others. Too often though, much of the content was slick marketing style stuff that left you still wondering how YOU would achieve your goals. Joanna's book isn't like that - it's a comfy mix of information and personal story that gives you solid suggestions of actions to take, software to use and so on and she doesn't pretend things will happen like magic. She's encouraging and offers sincere advice, ideas and info.
I'd say if you're looking for a good book to get you going, (and one that doesn't break the bank too!) you'll be happy with this buy. I am currently listening for the third time and that is a rare thing for me to do, possibly the first time I've done this.

Great info!

So many authors offer just an overview with no meat on the bones - not the case here. Lots of 'first steps', 'next steps' - a very informative listen !!

Good for ebook

This book is full of useful information. I’m sure it would be excellent as an ebook but for an audible, not so much. Every couple of minutes it follows the same pattern, you can find more information on my blog at dah dah dah dot com backslash dah dah dah. Because if the information and the manner it which it is presented, both from the reader and writer I do recommend this book, it’s a quick listen just be prepared for the constant stream of urls coming your way.

More of what to do please

Most of the authors can’t seem to help talking about themselves & take FOREVER to get to the actual “how to”.

worth listening...buy the companion book!

This is a personal success story from a 'working" author. chock full of recommended leads and additional content at "creative pen " web site.
there are lots of info that would be difficult to write down correctly...certainly worth the few dollars to get the web addresses correct to get the free content.

This book does exactly what the title says!

This is a no nonsense book. It's practical and the author does not waste your time-- she gets to the point and gives you solid information on how to actually make a living writing. I feel like I can get started with my writing now. I am going to The Creative Penn website to download the free companion workbook. I was happy to hear there is a workbook because I was unable to take notes when listening to the book as I was driving. I'm really excited to get started on this writing journey. Thanks for all the good advice Joanna Penn!

Practical Guidance for Those Considering Authoring

What an awesome audio-book! Easy to read with tons of practical information. And the length is perfect. In 2.5 hours, Joanna tells you all the ins and outs of publishing a book and making a living with your writing. She covers traditional publishing and self-publishing as well as podcasting, blogging, and other avenues. And, she gives you a lot of additional tips and tricks that many other authors have missed sharing. One of my favorite tips was when she said "consider writing a short book or a series of shorter books (i.e. 40,000 words or less)." This blew my mind! Here I was thinking I needed to write at least 100,000 words for my first book, but the idea of writing three smaller guides and then ultimately combining them into one work takes my one product and breaks it into four potential income streams. I will most likely go back and listen to this again to make sure I write down all of the important guidance she offers. Definitely pick up this audio book if you're considering writing and the ways you can scale your writing for sale.

Penn-nominal! Thank you! 😀

Between the awesome accent and the excellent author advice, this book is a slam dunk.

Good primer!

This book is a good primer for someone considering writing as a full-time gig. I felt a little frustrated at times because there were too many external link referrals which meant that a lot of critical info was skipped. I still recommend the book but know that you will have to leave the book to get depth.
