On the sixth day of Author Goodies…business advice and links.
Every author is a business owner. Whether you like it or not, if you’re a writer, you are creating a product for sale, which makes you an entrepreneur. Here’s some links to some great blogs and vlogs about the business of writing, and keeping your most important asset (you!) inspired to create.
Kiffanie Stahle (The Artist’s JD) is a lawyer, a photographer and a small business owner. Her blog posts talk about legal issues facing creative business owners.
Joel Friedlander at thebookdesigner.com shares a list of 52 blogs for self-publishing authors.
Writer Beware® is a blog that looks at the business issues of writing, like contracts and copyright issues. It’s sponsored by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, with additional support from Mystery Writers of America, Horror Writers Association, and American Society of Journalists and Authors.
When I get stuck, I look for inspiration from other creative avenues. CreativeSomething.net is your (almost) daily dose of creative inspiration and encouragement.
Because you are your brand, it’s important that you keep yourself engaged and inspired. Danielle Laporte’s TruthBombs are a daily favorite of mine.
Marie Forleo is another inspiration for me. Her weekly vlog, MarieTV, is energizing.
