Unlike previous volumes which focus on how to earn a living while writing in very specific areas, this anthology accurately describes a wide range of different avenues an aspiring author can pursue, either for profit or for personal fulfillment. Speaking directly to retirees, this book opens doors to many other areas worth pursuing; its chapters vary from the inspirational (the importance of linking to a community with similar interests, reconnecting to oneas dreams, seeking inspirational sources) to the quotidian (everyday writing tips, and how to use oneas experience to find subjects to write about). Writing after Retirement provides a variety of vantage points from published authors and paints a realistic portrayal of what it takes to get started in the industry. This book also includes preparation for the challenges that aspiring writers face, and practical guides for overcoming them. A range of issues are addressed: Linking oneas writing to current activities The nuts and bolts of writing Planning oneas estate New career paths Writing opportunities Practical advice on how to take that first step Whether writing for pleasure or for profit, the reader will find plenty to choose from in this collection.expected date of response (Some publications/contests tell their turn-around times, while many dona#39;t.) ...
