Writing is an amazing art or skill and more than them, it could be a therapy. But that’s not all, in 2022; writing has also become a great profession to pursue. Gone are the days where people used to say, “Writers don’t earn money”, or “Writing isn’t a real profession”. Now is the best of time for you to be in the writing market because guess what? Writers do make money and writing is a real profession.

The world is going digital and coming into screens of our smart phones, tablets and computers. We’re doing everything online, be it shopping, paying bills, booking tickets and placing reservations, planning holidays, looking for services, starting and promoting their business, earning money, doing trading and investing, whatever you say is now available on your screens. 

And to bridge the gap between the consumers and the service providers, writing makes a powerful tool to connect, and that is why, almost each company and enterprise today needs the professional services of writers to showcase their product. The better the write-ups, the better the sales and the traffic. Blog-writing, big write-ups on almost every website, words today literally have the power in every industry. It’s the content writers of all these industries who’s words are making a huge impact on the minds of the people reading them.

Apart from the obvious professional corporate sector opportunities and needs of a writer, there are the creative aspects too that comes with writing, like writing books, writing for series, writing novels or short stories or doing poetry. Creative writing is another facet in the world of words, one that can make you the next J.K Rowling or Ruskin Bond. And adding to the humor, creative writing can bring you ample of opportunities in the corporate sector too. 

So now, when we know what wonders can a writing profession bring in our life, and how writing can impact the world and change the game, we now come to the more important part, learning about how to write, everything about publishing, or the other jobs that people good with languages and words and writing can look for, all about social media marketing and using internet to look out for writing career opportunities. 

A successful and full time writing career in India is still not as mainstream as let's say, law or accountancy or engineering or medical or adminstrative services are, there are no proper writing colleges or universities, no proper degrees, no proper path how to make a career in writing successfully. There are even no proper working industry for writers, yet they're everywhere. No proper payscale parameters and no proper guiding mentors. 

And that's why we at Shabd decided to bring a book for you that talks about every aspect of writing that you can think of. From covering how reading impacts your writing, to how you can find an idea for your book to how to actually write it as a novel and develop characters and sub plots and situations or how to find full time jobs or become a freelancer or different styles of writing to promotion and marketing of your books using internet and social media to finding traditional publishers or going for self publishing of your book. 

We will cover it all in this book together chapter after chapter, every topic explained in detail. 

This book intends to serve you as a guiding light, to enable you how to brush up your writing skill and talent, how to gain fame, money and recognition from this amazing weapon of words that you possess without letting it go waste. 

So with this zeal and passion, let's embark the journey and understand all about the writing world to the best of our abilities.
