When to take a risk in your writing career
Taking a risk can pay off handsomely, but how do you know when it's the right time?
Writer's Digest talked to several writers who had made big changes — and reaped the rewards — and shared their insights on the following questions:
How did you know that it was time to pursue freelance full time?
What was the first step you took in preparing to support yourself?
What gave you the courage to make the leap?
What aspects of being a full-time writer surprised you the most?
What advice would you offer writers considering a fresh start?
Head to Writer's Digest to see their answers. (You can also see what C.J. Lyons, a doctor-turned-author, told us a few years ago about her own huge leap here.)
