If you have answered yes to any of the questions above, are you ever going to love Writing on the Run!
If you're like us, you have to write through a busy schedule, a full household, and loads of self-doubt.
When our children were young, Allen worked the "graveyard" shift as a police officer. Linda had the demanding responsibility of being the literary manager for a regional theater. In addition to chauffeuring our children and pets to appointments and trying to have quality family time, we wrote in the early morning and late evening hours.
In 1996, we formed ourselves into a writing team and began to write, publish, and promote our first Website, printed newsletter, book proposal, and book. To work as a team, we had to become even more proficient at Writing on the Run. (See About Allen & Linda Anderson and About Our Books for a couple pages of shameless self-promotion. Visit our Bookstore to purchase our autographed books. Our other websites are located at www.angelanimals.net, www.rescuedsavinganimals.net, www.allenandlindaanderson.com, and www.angelanimals.net.)
Sickness and health challenges,
Lean financial times,
Less than ideal circumstances.
Because writing is how many of us understand and complete the experiences of our lives.
Because studies have proven that writing is an antidote to DEPRESSION; people who write about their painful life experiences recover from them more easily and quickly.
Because writing is a lifeline of communication to people all over the world.
Because writing can provide additional, even full-time, INCOME.
Because writing is a FUN and enjoyable way to express your thoughts, feelings, and insights - even if it's only to yourself.
Most of all, KEEP WRITING in 2012.
