Until recently I had not known about the "So you'd like to . . ." guides on Amazon. It allows Amazon users to create "how-to" advice, including links to products (Amazon is so smart!).
I created one last night titled, "So you'd like to . . . be a beat." Check it out on Amazon. Yes, it's shameless self-promotion.
While you're there, perhaps the beat writer in you will feel the muse and you'll create your own guide. We've all got something important and interesting to teach!
