Comments from the author about writing: Beside my desk is my writing credo. Writing is a vital and vibrant part of

    • my identity

    • my wellbeing

    • how God wired me

    • how I give back to him

I write every day by

    • reading

    • listing

    • organizing

    • freewriting

    • drafting

    • editing

    • proofreading

I structure my life to nurture writing by

    • organizing

    • simplifying

    • eliminating

    • collaborating

I write

    • to heal

    • to learn

    • to create

    • to share

I don't always live up to this, but it provides a beacon.
