Until now, as a writer, all you've focused on is the Craft of writing.
However, your writing is not the same thing as your business.
This book gives you a combination of career and writer/life advice to help you take that next step, and go from being merely a writer to being a professional, from someone who has had to learn all this the hard way.
Some of the topics discussed include:
The physicality of writing
What's stopping you from writing

I got this book in the Write Stuff bundle.
I enjoyed this one. It largely summarizes what Dean Wesley Smith writes about on his blog, but it's still written well. The copyright section was worth reading, as was the practice session. However, the biggest failing was that the info was very basic, almost too basic for my tastes.
It could have been a lot more comprehensive, too, but for the value in the bundle, I'm glad I grabbed it.
