Word Hustler

There is a great little post over at Tobias Buckel’s blog about hustling for freelance work to support a writing career. I’m not sure I’d advise taking out a six month loan (thats about 10 – 12k!) unless you are uber serious, totally confidant in your writing skills and have at least a few publications under your belt. Even then its a huge risk. But Tobias shows the level of gritty determination, some might say obsession, it takes to break through as a writer.
