EPISODE 5: What life is like as a full-time author

Welcome to the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast. Join me – bestselling indie author Steff Green – as we talk about the highs, the lows, the cat piles, the existential angst... I bare all about what my 2 1/2 years as a full-time author have been like. This podcast is packed with advice if you're dreaming about leaving your day job.

In this episode:

  • The one thing I wasn’t prepared for when I quit my day job.

  • Why you should never use the office calendar to plan your resignation (!!!)

  • How to set, and keep, a daily schedule.

  • How to manage work for multiple streams of income.

  • My list-writing superpowers.

  • Getting shit done with Three Important Things.

  • Planning releases the Steff way (aka, not really planning them at all).

  • How I deal (and am dealing) with author angst.

  • The importance of planning adventures.

    "Right now I’m dealing with a big ole dose of existential angst. Because I wrote a hit series last year, I made nearly $250k. Then that series finished and POOF, all those readers disappeared."
