Notice I say of thought, because as of yet, I can't say financial independence, although I'm working in that direction. Having the freedom to write what I want and when I want is amazing. When I worked as a journalist, much of my writing was targeted either by story selection of the day or a specific assignment or project, normally not of my choosing. As a fiction writer, I have the freedom to shape my own stories and experiment more with style.(less)

Does a professional athlete become the best at her game by talking about what she's going to do or by actually doing it? Of course the answer is by actually doing something. You improve your craft by writing. You assess your success by submitting your writing to editors and publishers. Then you repeat the process by using their advice, rejection, etc. to improve your craft. If you look at the earlier works of almost any writer and compare them to later writings, you will see there is a metamorphosis in everyone's writing.
I wrote for a long time without submitting anything. My husband compared me to a woodcutter who carefully cut and stacked the trees he chopped down but then simply left the wood to rot where it was. It was his observation that finally spurred me to submit to a publisher.(less)

12 Truths About Life

I came across this TED talk by writer Anne Lamott while I was doing some research on reading and literacy for my work as an instructional coach. The author I was reading had mentioned it in conjunction with making sure we give students enough time and room to DO instead of just passively sit and absorb. However, in listening to Lamott, I discovered a treasure trove of fantastic information that ap Read more of this blog post »
