“The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success” by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell is a motivating book about breaking the traditional “rules” of freelance writing to prosper and do it your own way.
Both authors are freelance writers and they share examples of how they broke the traditional “rules” of freelance writing to gain more assignment and make more money in a career they are passionate about. The 200 page plus book is easy to read and contains many tips for the aspiring freelancer as well as the seasoned pro.
There are chapters on breaking into the business, generating ideas, sending queries without fear, contracts, how to find information, doing interviews, breaking grammar rules, getting paid, and your renegade attitude and how to thrive and not just survive. There are also some good references in the Appendices.
A number of the chapters concluded with a profile of a freelance writer who shared some of their renegade strategies that had worked for them. A couple of these writers were Melody Warnick, Jennifer Lawler, and Kelly James-Enger. Hearing the perspective of these other writers was not only informative, but also motivational and inspiriting. This would especially be true for the new writer.
There are nuts and bolts about the writing business that are not covered in this book, but that was not the author’s purpose. It would be good for an aspiring writer to read some of the nuts and bolts and traditional rules type books, but then read this to realize that often rules are made to be broken, and when you do break them it is not the end of the world, but sometimes the beginning to bigger and better things.
I’ve recently started to increase the freelance work I do, and I’m glad I read this book. There are some great ideas and examples for any freelance writer. So, all you need to do is read the book and become a Renegade Writer today.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
