Thanks, Liz. There's some great stuff here for me. I'm totally with you on developing a platform and a specialty, by the way. I want to be a food writer, but I also like to incorporate nutrition and travel pieces under that umbrella.

I have been wondering if the Enger book is worth buying. Does it really have a lot of solid advice that hasn't been written everywhere else? Do you think it's useful for a beginning freelancer?


Hi Julie,

It's hard to say where someone should buy a book or not. Have you checked down at the local bookshops to see if they have it - then you could flick through it and decide for yourself.

I decided to buy a number of books on writing simply because I could't find them here in New Zealand - and I have found all of the ones I choose very useful - and probably there is a lot of repetition in some of the books but that just reinforces things.

If you haven't already, you should read Renegade Writer for a different angle on things. Liz
