Your time is limited. Live your life!

*Given the events of today, this is incredibly timely & on-point wisdom*: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." —Steve Jobs

Fifteen years -- and counting! :-)

This month I'm celebrating my 15th year as a professional author/editor/writing instructor. Proud to say my first editing client (Howie) is still in contact! Also pleased to say I recently worked on a book written by a famous rock star's sister. :-) People either think of me as a writer or an editor, but never both (it seems). That annoys me. I'm able to do both, and I have years of experience. I don't have to be one or the other. I'm also a publisher, most recently with the launch of Triple Crow Publishing. Guess what I'm trying to say is I don't like being put into a box when I do more than one thing. Some people can write, but they can't edit well. Some people can edit, but they can't write well. Fortunately, I can do both. Next time you need a writer OR an editor, please consider working with me. I'd appreciate it. This isn't a hobby for me, it's a career. I take it seriously. Plus, you can bribe me with chocolate! :-)
