FOREWORD BY TONY JORDAN - "Tim and Danny have put together some great tips for surviving the (writing) process.

Want to get out there and start earning a living as a writer? Sure, we all have dreams of selling a script for big bucks. But what can we do while we wait for that to happen? How do we give up the day job and be a working writer? That's what this book covers.

To make it as a scriptwriter, a working writer, a writer who gets paid, you need to have the right attitude and approach. This guide is going to break down practical and proactive techniques to help you get started, and show you how to maintain a career once you’re up and running.

It’s a guide that’s less about the craft of scriptwriting and more about being a working writer. 

There are lots of books about rare occurrences of someone  ”selling it big”. This book is about being part of the hard-working majority, not a one-off fluke. If you picked up a book about investing your money, you’d be rightly disappointed if the advice inside was “win the lottery”. There’ll be no “sell a script for a million dollars on your first go” nonsense here. This book is about long-term success through graft. How do you survive as a writer?

 

"What a great book, I wish there'd been something like this around five years ago." - Michelle Lipton (Hollyoaks, Rocket Island)

"This is awesome. I'm so glad I have it!" - Sophie Petzal (Wolfblood, Danger Mouse)
