"Motivation." Like so many of us, I know how and what to write about, but the discipline to sit down and write does not come easily. I've done most of my writing when I have other writers to write for. And I'm a professional editor. Go figure.

What is your favorite writing saying?
I hate writing, but I love having written. -Dorothy Parker

Tell me something else about yourself, please?
