    As an experienced healthcare journalist jumping into a freelance career, I found this was the one book that I needed to read. Hitt Nichols is already well known for her generosity to fellow writers through the HittList, a weekly email about job openings. In this book, Hitt Nichols engagingly mixes practical tips about the mechanics of freelancing and covering medical beats with more philosophical musings on writing.
