At the suggestion of Ms Siegel, I am starting to use this blog by listing some things I learned about writing this year:
1. It helps to protect your most productive writing time (afternoon for me) and do other work during other time.
2. Revising is really hard, sometimes it's easier to start over and import parts from your previous draft.
3. The best way to get better at writing is to write. The second best way is to read good writers.
4. An attentive editor is a writers best friend.
