In this show I discuss a decision every writer will need to face at some point. Are you writing just for pleasure or are you writing to make money as part of a business. Even though I have a business (Stoneham Press Ltd), which I originally created for my writing efforts, that part of the business is the part I've most neglected. I don't really have a business mindset for my writing, unlike for example, this podcast.
There are advantages and disadvantages for each mindset. You might hear a lot of people advise that you need to treat self-publishing like a business, but really you don't need to, at least to begin with.
