The dictionary defines ‘business’ as ‘work relating to the production, buying, and selling of goods or services.’ So if you’re writing a book that you’re planning to make available for sale, rather than simply writing a manuscript that’s going to stay in your bottom drawer, you’re in business. And thinking of your writing as a business is a really helpful way of thinking about what you’re doing and how you’re doing it, and taking yourself and what you’re doing seriously. Because honestly – if you don’t take yourself seriously, who will?
In this week’s podcast I share a sneak preview of my upcoming talk at the London Book Fair’s Writers’ Summit, and I’d welcome your thoughts and ideas on how to develop it!
