    Read this, and you'll be convinced

    Wonderful book. Bly makes the business of freelance writing accessable and possible for even the most reserved. I've made notes on every page of this book, and dog-eared most of it for reference. Bly convinces you that you don't have to be an expert in anything to write for a living... You just have to be dedicated to learning and meeting challenges. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in copy writing for a living.
