You Can’t Make A Living As A Writer Because Being a Writer Isn’t a Job
Ester Bloom

Never take a big advance offer!

That money is a LOAN, not a prize!

Only take as much as you absolutely need to write the book you pitched and/or get to work on your next one.

You don’t get your royalty checks until the publishers earn back the advance they LOANED you, so the smaller the advance, the fewer copies the book has to sell in order for you to become profitable for the rest of your life.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
