I picked up two books about writing, and the underlying message was that writer's must have discipline!
"Write Where You Live | Successful Freelancing at Home Without Driving Yourself and Your Family Crazy" by Elaine Fantle Shimberg (c1999)
"A Writer's Time | A Guide to the Creative Process, from Vision through Revision" by Kenneth Atchity (c1986)
For What It's Worth: This is 2018, so these words were written 20 and 30 years ago. The Internet and the success of print-on-demand (POD) self-publishing are new since those books were written, but I felt these books have perspectives and lessons that are still relevant today.
This post started as a book review but it took an interesting turn when I realized the books I am reviewing were 20 and 30 years old. I was comparing/contrast writing then and now when I realized that...
My mother was born in 1925. On the back cover of her memoir she points out that this was only 6 years after women were given the right to vote. That gave me a first glimpse that history is not so ancient, after all.
I had thought that genealogy was the dry presentation of names and dates: born, married, died, etc.
As I investigated my own genealogy, I discovered much more information was available.
