A Review of Peter Bowerman’s — The Well-Fed Writer

In 2003 my life changed dramatically. I made some BIG decisions and one of these decisions was starting Write On ~ Creative Writing Services, LLC.

I had always dreamed of being a writer and I’d written in some capacity in all facets of my career. I read The Well-Fed Writer by Peter Bowerman and my passion for writing was reignited. The book was one of the catalysts to making the best career moves I’ve ever made.

Eventually Peter Bowerman released The Well-Fed Writer Back for Seconds. I devoured that book, too.

He also released a second edition of The Well-Fed Writer ~ Financial Self-Sufficiency as a Commercial Freelancer in Six Months or Less. This book is chockfull of updated content from both of his original titles. It includes new information and tried and true tactics to truly succeed as a freelance writer. If you’ve been dreaming of the writer’s lifestyle but you’re afraid of the “starving writer” myths, you must grab a copy of this book.

Peter skillfully outlines his proven techniques, methods and systems to freelance success.

The book includes:

  • A realistic look at the life of a FLCW (FreeLance Commercial Writer)
  • Reasons to live the writers dream
  • Tips to be successful
  • First steps when starting out
  • Sales and marketing strategies
  • Templates, letters and proven marketing materials to get clients
  • Well Fed Resources and connections to fast-track success

There are also several appendixes including Well-Fed Success Stories. I’m proud to say from the time I read the first edition of The Well-Fed Writer till now; I’ve become one of the featured success stories. I only mention this because if I can do it, so can you and this book will give you a solid foundation to determine if you really want to live the writers life.

I’ll admit there are a few areas where Peter and I agree to disagree but nothing major and really it’s all about finding your own groove. You’ll do that with the guidance of The Well-Fed Writer.
