Lots of people ask me how I made the transition from full-time employee to full-time writer. Some want to know the specific steps I took while others are interested in how I continue to sustain a living as a writer (which typically isn’t known for being a lucrative profession).
The truth is I never intended to make any money doing this. I didn’t think it was possible.
At most, I thought I’d be able to publish books (if I was lucky) and collect a few meager royalties while continuing to hold down a day job for the rest of my life.
But in less than two years, I found myself at a crossroads.
