I schedule time to write and I write. I have trained my muse to show up at regular times. Years of working on deadlines as a journalist taught me to use time as if it is running out. After a dear friend died before her book was published, I don't allow myself to put off writing. Time is precious. We only get so much of it.(less)

Writers can write anywhere--low tech pen and paper, high-tech dictation to text, wherever we are we can work. We aren't trapped in cubicles or stuck producing work at times dictated by others. In the research stage, we meet fascinating experts and learn new things. Writing is capturing life, recording the human condition, and trying to glean meaning from it. What's not to love?(less)

“Writing is capturing life, recording the human condition, and trying to glean meaning from it.”
Joni M. Fisher

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Mae West

“I think your work likes you. You find beauty where others don’t see it. Or rather, they choose to ignore.”
Kerry Lonsdale, Everything We Keep

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
