All of us wannabes want to know how to make it as an author.
We want to know how to make ourselves do the work when we’re not motivated (just suck it up and do it is still the best answer I’ve heard to this), how to do the mechanics of writing, how to get an agent and get published, and how to market the thing once it’s out there.
A big thing you have to do these days is make an “author platform,” basically build a base of people who’ll read your stuff once it’s out there because marketing, whether you’re in a big 6 publishing house or self-pubing it, is up to you when you’re starting out.
