If you earn money selling your words to websites and other publishers, the Internal Revenue Service will likely say you’re a small business owner. Freelance income is self-employment income, and so are any royalties you receive for that book you published or self-published. That can be a good thin...

A little podcast love:

""What I love about these podcasts is that I always get at least one treasure--sometimes I learn something new and other times I hear something that reinforces or reminds me of a best writing practice that had slid down the ladder of my active awareness. This was no exception. Thank you so much!"

We made it through summer! I hope it was full of high word counts AND plenty of time with your loved ones. We've got plenty coming up in the next couple of weeks. Until then, happy writing!
