This is a brief post to highlight one that Joe Konrath has up over at his blog Joe’s blog is a Newbie’s Guide to Publishing and the post up now is titled “Pushing the Button,” written by author Jude Hardin. It deals with Jude’s struggle about when to quit the day job and write full time.
Yes, Virginia, Jude pushed the button and in this post he explains the struggle to get to this point and how he got the courage to live the dream.
Not only does Jude explain the inner and outer journey that got him to this point, but Joe Konrath gives tips on how a writer knows it’s time to stop dreaming and start writing full time. It’s a great post from Jude and fabu tips from Joe.
Writing full time is my dream too. I’m not at the point where it’s possible yet. I’m still trying to write my way to writing full time. Recently, I’ve made a conscious decision to set aside more time for writing so that I can push out more books for my fans. More books mean more sales and that is the path to paradise – writer style.
Over the weekend I’ll blog and give y’all all the lowdown on my new one that’s out now and I may even toss out a hint about the one I just started. My WIP is the next installment in my Forever Series – it’s Peter’s story. Fans have been asking for that one. And I love hearing from readers. It’s nice to know that there are folks crazy enough to take a trip over the top with the duck lady.
Now, all I need is a mass outbreak of insanity to spawn a horde of new risk-takers ready to live life from the most radical POV – over the top of reality. Trust me, folks, the view from the top is good, but the view from over the top is better.
And each sale brings me one step closer to pushing that button too. In the meantime, pop over to Joe’s place and give Jude’s post a read.
