If You Absolutely Must – An ebook About Making It As a Writer

This ebook is a collection of practical, practicable advice for inexperienced writers, in the hopes that their journeys might be a little smoother than mine has been. Much of the content here is previously-published material, but there is a good deal of new stuff too, and it has been extensively reworked. This project stemmed from a simple love of writing and writers and a sincere desire to make life a little easier for people who want to pursue the craft. It is available in .pdf, .epub, and .mobi formats. WordPress does not permit hosting .epub files but you can easily find a conversion tool with a Google search. Edit: Fixed typo and added stable .epub and .mobi links.

The ebook is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International Public License, which means that you may download it and share it as you see fit, but may not alter or use it for commercial purposes. The ebook is free, but if you would like to tip me for my efforts, you may do so here.

But I think the paper has a lot of important information regardless and draws heavily on my dissertation, which also inspired my first book.
