If you aspire to becoming a professional freelance writer  Jun 10, 2007
David Trottier is a successful freelance writer and writing teacher who since 1998 has had hundreds of his articles published in magazines ranging from 'Writer's Digest' to 'Road and Track'. he has also authored several successful books (including "The Screenwriter's Bible"), written and sold several featured film scripts, worked as a business writer, copywriter, and newsletter editor. In "The Freelance Writer's Bible", David draws upon his considerable experience and expertise to create an invaluable compendium of information, advice, instruction, tips, techniques, illustrations, anecdotes, and more about just what aspiring writers seeking freelance careers must know and be able to do if they are to be successful in their chosen field. from discovering and developing a creative vision, to achieving higher and higher levels of creativity and improved writing excellent, to selling in seventeen key writing markets, to creating a strategic marketing plan, "The Freelance Writer's Bible" will prove to be a reliable instructional guide and 'user friendly' manual. Readers will learn how to set up a writing business, make that business profitable, deal with writing bocks, write effective query and proposal letters, enhance their writing income, and so much more. With a great deal of 'fill in the blank' forms, this must be considered something of a 'consumable' title and therefore not a good selection for a public library collection. But if you aspire to becoming a professional freelance writer, regardless of the genres or media you intend to work in, then you need to give a careful and personal reading to your very own copy of "The Freelance Writer's Bible" by David Trottier.
Recommended for Writers Looking for Markets -- but not for brand new writers  Jan 15, 2007
The first part of the book is mostly about the mechanics of writing and dealing with the basic questions of how to write, why you write, and so on. In my opinion, the first part could have been easily left out or made into a separate publication. The rest of the book is primarily about marketing. The book really does give a lot of helpful and unique suggestions for finding a market for your already written work. If you're a new freelancer or a writer who hasn't already written much, I'd skip it. If you're a writer with a lot of already written material you want to know how to market, I'd say this book is at least worth what you'd pay on this site.
Wow -- yay, yippy  Nov 12, 2006
Impersonation of Trottier: "Wow I'm so excited! I'm going to pretend to be full of enthusiasm so that you'll have a good impression the book you've purchased. This way, you'll ignore the fact that the first quarter of this book has no substance. In fact, I'll ask you stupid questions like: 'Why do you write?' and 'What's important to you' and 'If you had to write a letter to your son and you knew you'd never see him again -- what would write to him?'"

There are so many pointless littls sessions throughout the first quarter of the book... it's just FLUFF!

He asks you all sorts of questions and you're supposed to answer them -- then he says: "Those questions are specifically designed so that you can see what your most important values are."

But what he doesn't realize is that most people already KNOW what their values are and already KNOW what sorts of things they're going to be writing about, based off of those important values.

If you don't know what you're going to write about, and why your writing it, then you have no business trying to write!

I like Trottier's book on script writing, but man! ... this book irritates the hell out of me.

Granted, after the first quarter of the book -- it FINALLY has substance, but if you're going to start a book out with poinlessness then you're going to piss off your readers -- I happen to know that -- MOST PEOPLE know that -- so what quallifies him to be teaching us anything?

I don't care if he has a good writing career -- if he's going to "teach" none-substance material, then he's not teaching.

I'm sorry -- but I can't stand books like this. It's as if the excitement in the wording is going to inspire you, motivate you, and get you to do all sorts of things even though you haven't read a single word of substance.

For the first two pages, the excitement it contagouse -- it's a good hook, but that "hook" lasts and entire quarter of the damn book. How long can you possibly be expected to tollerate that garbage?

This book could have been brilliant without that first quarter. That's not just an opinion. That's a damn fact.

This is one of the worst "How to improve your writing" book I've ever seen.
Great advice.  Jul 24, 2006
Marketing is the part of a writing career that is often overlooked and yet is one of the most important job requirements. This book offers helpful insight.
Great first step into writing.  Jul 16, 2006
Writing is an excellent way to build a career working from home. The Freelance Writer's Bible is a great first step into discovering the type of writer in you and how to make money at it within 1 year. It guides you through setting your goals, learning about the different ways to earn a living at writing, and creating a plan. You'll probably still want to invest in books that target your specific writing type (magazines, copywriting, books, etc), but in terms of getting focused and organized to start a writing career, this is a good resource.
