I've been a professional freelance writer for twenty years -- traditionally published a bunch of nonfiction books, plus blog posts, magazine articles, how-tos, interviews, essays, columns, educational curriculum, picture books, biographies, devotionals -- and I hope, one day -- a novel. Maybe an eBook, might try indie publishing some of my out-of-print or more outside-the-box titles. Here I'm collecting all kinds of helpful quotes and links to books, articles, and blog posts on the writing life!
