How do you know you've made it as a writer? What are the signs of success? And how do you know when you've really made it as a writer - someone who's reached the rarified heights of publishing success? If you know what to look for, you can plan accordingly. This book contains fifty signs of writing success. Each sign has two parts. The first part tells you that you've made it as a writer, but you're probably still at the early stages of your career. The second part tells you that you've really made it as a writer, because you've grown to appreciate the truths of modern publishing.
