Many people who follow me here are writers as well as readers. If that applies to you, you'll definitely want to keep reading.
Announcing The 2023 Write Stuff Bundle, brought to you by StoryBundle and curated by multi-award-winning author and editor, Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
Here's Kris on why you should buy this bundle:
These days, anyone can write and publish a book. The rise of electronic books has made publishing easy and quick. However, not everyone can have a writing career.
Writing careers take patience and a willingness to learn. Writers must learn the basics of craft, which they've always needed to know. But now, writers also need to learn how to run a small business. They must also understand that at times, they'll have to try a few other things to keep their writing business afloat.
Through it all, they must maintain their enthusiasm and avoid pitfalls that have prevented promising writers from having actual careers.
This bundle helps with all of that and so much more.
For craft, look no farther than Darcy Pattison's Start Your Novel. That first book always takes a leap of faith. Darcy makes it easy, by breaking the process into six simple steps. Ron Collins gets even more specific with his latest nonfiction writing book, On Creating (And Celebrating) Characters.
Then we have the process books, such as the Bundle on Productivity. That lovely volume is a bundle within a bundle, all geared at helping writers become more productive. Inside the bundle within a bundle, you'll find four books and a lot of examples on how to be productive, even if you have health issues.
Of course, having a writing career assumes that writers make money at their craft. We have two books to help with that directly. Douglas Smith's Playing The Short Game on how to make money at writing short stories has become a classic in the field. Then there is an online workshop that will teach writers effective ways to increase their writing income, called How To Make More Than Coffee Money.
