In general, most writers publish their work with the intent of earning some income.  The idea is that over time they publish more and there will be a snowball effect that happens to them.

Inertia: is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion, including changes to its speed and direction.

Wouldn’t we all like to have a blog that impacts peoples’ lives.  We’d love to write ‘THE’ book that changes the game around, and makes us into something more. Except we have to contend with the rat-race, and nobody really cares about us.  Or, we’d like to assume that no one cares. To others, we …

Today is the day- Living a Life of Writing just turned six.  A lot of other blogs have celebrated sixth birthdays this year, so this probably makes us “old”- but given that this blog became a website, we’d like to think that this isn’t the case, there is still a lot more juice left in …
