Don’t Talk Just Write

What I’m about to write is antithetical to the existence of this post, but… When I was penning my first book, I routinely tweeted my progress, angst, tips, etc. about anything writing or publishing related.

Landlines Should Be Cheaper

We are trimming the unnecessary fat in our fiscal house. As one of the dwindling numbers of consumers who still have landlines, I examined the phone bill to see where we could save a couple of pennies.
