Thursday, July 10, 2003 ::: Thinking of Writing a Book:::
Scott seems to have done his homework well. If you are thinking of writing a computer book, then this post is a must read for you.
Don't blame me if you decide to give up writing that book you had in mind due to this article. Main thing is don't do it for money...:-)
As Scott also points out:
While magazine writing is definitely more profitable, don't totally discount book writing. There's something cool about being able to stroll into a bookstore and see your book(s) on the shelf. Nothing makes a resume look better than having authored a book or two on the technology that you're being hired to work with. And book writing and book publishers are a great way to move into magazine article writing.
