the busness of writing – 3by3 writing method

We take side trips on the 3by3 writing method. There are a few suggestions about money.
It is strongly suggested that a spread sheet is kept for writing expenses. Research, conferences, travel including driving miles, paper, technical editing, can be often written off against writing income.
This is not tax advice, please consult a your own tax expert.
Some writers separate their writing income from their “day job” income as a separate business and then deduct their writing costs from their writing income.
If you are lucky enough to land a paying job and have an agent, and the payment is close to the end of the year sometimes you can ask to be paid in two checks, one at the end of the year, one at the beginning, that way the income is spread over two years.
Just as organizing a story is important to a writer, organizing writing income and expenses is equally important.
