Writing, editing, and publishing can be overwhelming. Finally being "done" is a great feeling. Of course, I put "done" in quotes because marketing never really ends, but at least the project itself is officially done.(less)
Amanda Roberts Write. That was the best advice given to me by my writing teacher in college, and it still rings true today.

No, we’re not moving, but the blog is. Since I became a serious author, I have been considering re-branding, and I ended up putting it off for far too long. The new website will be AmandaRobertsWrites.com, and you’ll still be able to find all the great China-related content you love, but I will also be sharing a lot more about our daily lives living and raising our children here in China, my bo...

“If you are a reader, you are already halfway to being a writer,” she says. “For you have a love of words and pleasure from seeing them on a page. And if you are a writer, then you will find that you are driven to write. It is a gift that demands to be shared. You cannot be a silent singer.”
Philippa Gregory, The Taming of the Queen

“But seeing those words that were first written, and scratched out, and rewritten again in print and bound into a book, I know that I love the process of writing and publishing. To take a thought and work on it, to render it into the clearest form possible, and then to send it out into the world—this is work so precious and so joyful that I am not surprised that men have kept it to themselves.”
Philippa Gregory, The Taming of the Queen

“I feel as if I can think only when I see the words flowing from the nib of my quill, that my thoughts make sense only when they are black ink on cream paper. I love the sensation of a thought in my head and the vision of the word on the page.”
Philippa Gregory, The Taming of the Queen
