Additional Information

Hi Reader,
 

Greetings, my fellow foodophile-wordsmith!

Let me tell you why I wrote this book and how you can start a writing career through your excitement for food and desire to help others enjoy life.
 
I love food. To me, it defines important events, the course of travels and cultural experiences. I wanted to tell the story of food and share it with others so they could grow their own memories and passions. I began devouring books on food (get it?) to see how others told the story. The great Julia Child was not just a food expert; she was a word expert who taught and entertained generations with her marvelous writings.


I knew I wanted to be a food writer, but I didn't know how to get started. Fortunately, chat rooms on the Internet were a growing phenomenon at the time, so I was able talk, share and listen in food communities. It was a slow learning process. Fortunately as well, I met the food editor of a major magazine who gave me invaluable advice about the business of food writing. Note the word "fortunately" in my account, as in "I was lucky..." or "I stumbled across..." Forget luck and stumbling. I want you to have a faster and smarter start to your food writing career.


My book will show you how to become a food writer. As I mentioned, you'll read about my dumb luck and stumbles. You'll also see the things I got right and the techniques I use today as a professional food writer and publisher of eatquestnyc.com. You'll understand how to translate a great meal into great writing by crafting your authentic voice and avoiding clichéd and vague language. Step-by-step checklists will make sure you don't miss a single crucial detail about meals and restaurants. You'll learn how to use social media and blogging to spot trends and increase your influence. And you'll find out where the job opportunities are, how much they pay and what you have to do to win over editors and get assignments.


Combining food and writing is a recipe (couldn't help it) for a unique career and one heck of a good time.


Good luck!

Apparently, "best book" is just a title and has no relation to being the actual best book about anything. I was suckered into buying this book by a few positive reviews, against my better judgement I didn't wait until there were more reviews. I think I got the sister and brother of the author reviews. This book lacked substance, it was so lacking there really isn't anything to review.
...or at least spring for a decent editor. I could barely move forward with this horrifying, poor use of language and disregard for proper English. This was the least productive $2.99 expenditure EVER and I am offended.
This book is very poorly written and shares only the most basic knowledge about food writing. I recommend Will Write For Food.
