**WHAT OTHERS SAY**
"Talk to just about any bigshot writer about how they got started, and you get the same story: months or years of beating their head against the wall, followed by a gradual process of finally “getting it” and their career taking off.
And in my opinion, nothing can change that. You can, however, speed up how fast you “get it.” “Write Your Way Out Of the Rat Race” will help you do that, giving you a blueprint of exactly what you need to do and when to make your dream a reality."
—Jon Morrow of BoostBlogTraffic.com
“Let's be honest: Quitting your day job to freelance full time can be terrifying stuff. Luckily, Linda Formichelli is here to make it all amazingly less so. Equal parts inspiring and practical, this is the book hopeful freelancers have been waiting for.”
—Zachary Petit, Senior Managing Editor, Writer's Digest
"Too many writers waste their time living a 'feast or famine' lifestyle. They hold out for the big break, all the while spinning their wheels. In this book, Linda shows you a way out of the craziness so that you can live the dream of making a living as a writer. Read this book—and then read it again. You won't regret it."
