Get Published in 2013

Imagine ... seeing a book you've written on display at a local bookstore ... flipping through the pages of your favorite magazine to find an article written by you ... reading your poetry in a respected publication ... noticing your name in the credits of a movie or television show ... watching a performance of a play you've written ... or finding your personal essay in a popular book. 

While a fortunate few writers can become bestselling authors earning millions of dollars a year from their writing, it is possible to enjoy success as a published writer in many other ways.
"The best fame is a writer's fame. It's enough to get a table at a good restaurant, but not enough to get you interrupted when you eat."
          - Fran Leibowitz

"Recently, an 82-year-old woman had her first play produced in California--an adaptation of Great Expectations. She'd been a high school teacher for 60 years, and her love for Dickens never waned. Stories like that inspire me." 
          - Lenore Wright, Screenwriter

A small sampling of the advice you'll find in this guide from successful published writers:

"The most important thing I ever learned about writing is this: you don't have to have an idea big enough to fill a book in order to start planning a book. All it takes is a tiny nugget of an idea. Often a "what if?".  What if there really was a perfume that made a woman irresistible? What if a body got tossed up in someone's garden by an earthquake? What you have to do is prod and poke this nugget, ask it questions, research its components, play with it, and give it time to generate more ideas."
- Margaret Chittenden
Published writer of over 100 short stories and articles, three children's books, and 30 novels

"I read my dialogue out loud to make it believable."
- Madeline Baker
Published author of 36 books and 7 novellas

"Set reachable goals--finishing the next chapter, the first draft, the first agent's letter--and reward yourself for achieving them. This will help maintain your momentum, and reinforce a sense of ongoing progress."
- T. Davis Bunn
Best-selling author of 14 novels

"I once sent a query to a magazine that accepted queries and completed articles from writers. They rejected my query, but I still believed in the match. So, a year later, I wrote the article and sent it to the same magazine. Published!"
- Kelly Boyer Sagert
Managing editor of a publishing company and published writer of over 1,000 articles

Excerpt from a Sample Exercise 

by Wendy Bishop
Florida State University
nonfiction writer/editor

One way to find significance is to invent your own hurricane or other natural disaster (earthquake, fire, flash flood, tornado, etc.). Once invented, answer the following questions:

1. If you were given 24-hour notice before the big one arrives, what would you save from your home? 

2.  What would you save from your parent's home when you were ____ (choose an age)? 

3.  What would you choose with just thirty minutes notice? 

Do any items appear in more than one scenario? What does it mean that you have kept (or would save) these items over time? Explore their significance in an essay.

"My dad told me before he died, 'Debbie, if other people can write books then so can you.' I had to prove him right."

Co-author of over 80 books for children

"Make more money.
Look to your strengths to come up with ways to make extra money at"
