Writer's Resource: The Renegade Writer

Can you believe there's a book out there that tells freelance writers to break all the "rules"? Some writers wouldn't dream of sending simultaneous submissions or letting their queries go over one page in length. How refreshing it was for me to find The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell. It is my all-time favorite book about freelancing because they are very successful freelance writers (their credits include Writer's Digest and Psychology Today among others) and they give other writer's the assurance that you don't have to stress over the minute details.

I would recommend that every writer have this book on their shelves. I try to balance their renegade advice with the more standard views in the writing world. But it is well worth the money!
