What is your favorite writing saying?

Talent is like phlogiston,after the fact of fire. Work is its own cure. You have to like it better than being loved. -- Marge Piercy

What is your favorite book on writing?

On Fiction by John Gardner

What do you write?

Everything from 20-word blog squibs to 2000-word features to books. Right now enjoying the peculiar joy/agony of the book space.

What do you read?

Right now, almost exclusively books on my subject and anything that can help me write about history.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

My money gig right not is as news editor of an online women's magazine.


Journalist, blog editor, occasional fictioneer. New in town; working on a book (narrative journalism) and realized I need to connect with others here on this mad path. (For more details, my personal online shop: http://chrislomba...­).
