Welcome to one of the hardest professions in the world! Well then, what a welcome. They are telling you straight from the hip that this is a demanding profession. Well, why not, better you know before you sink knee-deep in pain and anguish. But there is a caveat that goes beyond this sober warning. It is not necessarily any easier to publish your manuscript today, let alone turn it into a bestseller, but at least you have all the resources now at your fingertips.
Once you have completed your formal qualifications, you will continue to hone your craft by practicing your writing work in different areas where you can at least derive a stable income. No matter how busy you are in the workplace, the financial stability certainly does help when you are able to set aside your quiet time to focus on your manuscript. And many of you have, you believe, already done that!
So, now the work gets really interesting. Now you need to get down to the business end of publishing your work. In order for you to realize your ambition of turning it into a well-read document, you have high ambitions of reaching the relevant bestseller lists. You have learned how to apply yourself in the literary sense. So, now is the time for you to learn how to write a best-selling book, not just any book, a best-selling book.
It can be done. Apart from learning how to revise your work to turn it into a publishable body, you will need to learn how to market your work to the right literary agents. You need to learn how to network effectively with influential publishers to get that foot in the door and them to read your work.
