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)
