-- Quote of the Day --

“ …Writing is very difficult, it is an extraordinarily complex task that demands every bit of us & also that most of us have not been trained in. Even people who have training have to deal with all kinds of problems that come up in their writing. …Writing is a creative act, & there are no hard & fast rules. ”

This quote was taken from an interview with Cindy on the Consicous Discussions talk radio show on November 2, 2007 This interview consisted of Part 1 of our discussion on the World of Writing. In this 2-part discussion we uncovered the behind-the-scenes activities of what it takes to run your career in writing as a business. To access this interview simply head over to the Consicous Discussions show via the hyper-linked show title in this post or the link on the right of this blog. Look for the archived episode that aired on Nov, 2 - 2007 for Part 1. Part 2 of this discussion aired on Jan 4, 2008.
