Sure, you know you won't go into an office, but it will be so nice to have no demands on your time, except writing. Yeah ... so, about that. As someone who has spent most of her adult life as a freelancer, let me speak to those of you who have conventional day jobs.

How NOT to sell books: Top 10 social media marketing no-nos for authors
Anne R. Allen's Blog
Let's face it. Authors do a lot of obnoxious things online in the name of "marketing." I think that's because the average author isn't educated in the field and we don't realize that not all marketing is created equal. Good marketing is not about bullying your customers. It's about enticing them. A lot of online groups badmouth authors, especially indies, because of iffy social media marketing practices.

Fringe factor: Small presses and self-publishing
School Library Journal
Beth Revis, author of the New York Times bestselling YA "Across the Universe" series (Penguin), joined a wave of established authors when she decided to self-publish her most recent book, The Body Electric. "I wrote a book.

10 things to say to a writer who's on the ledge
Novel Rocket
Writing often feels like a solitary pursuit. Truthfully, it's the successful writers who know better than to try to go it alone. Writing in a vacuum is not a good idea — for a lot of reasons. It's easy to lose perspective and either believe what you're writing is perfect, or worse, that it's junk. Having others who share the same struggles make us stronger.

This 1956 gardening advice book was a feminist manifesto
Slate
In 1956 Vita Sackville-West reviewed a new gardening book for the Observer. All stirred up, she was unstinting in her praise. "It is," she said, "by a woman who, with her husband, created out of nothing the sort of garden we should all like to have: a cottage garden on a slightly larger scale. ... Crammed with good advice ... I defy any amateur gardener not to find pleasure, encouragement and profit from [it]."
