Artist or Entrepreneur by Tracy Krauss

Writers are artists. At least that’s my bottom line and I’m sticking to it. But these days, writers have to think like business-people, too. It’s a reality we’ve all had to come to terms with, like it or not. There is no more holing oneself in an attic somewhere with one’s muse while an agent,… Read more »
