    • 7. Having another job would be a good idea in order to provide for yourself while writing, publishing, editing, and selling your first book.
  • Education and Training Requirements
    • Requirements vary.
    • 8. If planning to write professionally and be hired by a publisher, criteria differs from employer to employer.
    • 9. Some require an undergraduates degree, some may require a Bachelor's degree, or some may not require any degree.
    • 10. Some may require degrees in communications, journalism, or English.
    • 11. If planning to work alone, college degrees are useful, but not required.
  • Salary
    • Salaries vary.
    • 12. You have to get your book published (which might take a while), and people have to buy it.
    • 13. Most of the time there is no set salary, you get a certain percentage from every book sold. So, if no one buys the book, you don’t get anything. If many, many people buy it, you get a lot.
    • 14. It would be best to have a side job or have writing be your side job.
  • Places to Get the Training
    Some of the courses you could take to become a author are English, English Literature, Journalism, Creative Writing, and other writing classes. You could go almost anywhere for those.
    University of Evansville, University of Southern Indiana, Purdue, Indiana University, University of Kentucky.
  • 15. Skills and Interests Needed
    Reading. You need to have good reading skills, to like to read, and to read a lot.
    You need interpersonal skills so you can talk to editors and publishers.
    You could take classes in college like: Journalism, English, Creative writing, and English Literature, or you could get a degree in Fine Arts.
    Perseverance, patience, hard work, motivation, and dedication.
    Creativity.
  • 16. Why It Interests Me
    I love to read and I’ve already tried (not succeeding) to write books.
    The first personality I was most like on the Personality Test was a Creator and the third was a Doer. So, I’m creative and can work hard and persevere.
    When I read a good book and love it when I’m through, I’m just admiring someone else’s work. I feel a small sense of accomplishment when I finish yet another book, but I’d feel a whole lot more if I actually wrote one!
