Live: The Barefoot Writer May Issue

“The truth is, our lifestyle did change — it got better.”

That’s one of my favorite lines from this month’s issue of Barefoot Writer. It’s on page 33, where Cindy Cyr writes about the surprising changes she faced when she quit her job to become a writer.

She did it for the love of writing, and for the flexibility. But instead of having to sacrifice other things, like money and vacation, she ended up having both in spades.

That’s the ongoing message we hear from successful writers across the globe. Sure, a profitable Barefoot Writing career calls for consistent, diligent effort. But the payoff? Unlimited.

Enjoy this month’s round of tips on how to triumph in your own Barefoot Writing career. You’ll discover:

  • How small steps outside your comfort zone bring big rewards
  • The secret to profitable writing without clients
  • 4 tips to help you become a published writer
  • The letter everyone should write to their loved ones
  • Free online tools to make writing easier

Along with that, don’t miss our exclusive interview with WritersDigest.com editor Brian Klems, who shares tips on how to be the best (and happiest!) writer you can be.
