Complemented with links to videos, tutorials, articles and templates, Rise Of The Writer breaks down technical aspects of building a writing platform into simple steps, while encouraging scribes of all skill levels to push on for the love of their craft.
It’s a journey, and every writer needs a little help when setting off.
When reading this non-fiction book I was glad to do so on my laptop. Considering the topic it is practical and easy to understand that it contains various useful links (you want to immediately follow) to elaborate the topic on how to getting started as a blogger and/or writer. Rise Of The Writer is well structured and so are the links leading you to more detailed information like tools & techniques, tutorials, and samples. Joe does not embellish; instead he provides you with facts as well as useful hints and tips.
