Chances are you're online right now because you're looking for a recipe. Or you're checking directions to the house or apartment or restaurant you're going to tomorrow to eat yourself silly. Admit it: you only made it to Grub's blog today because a) you got the email reminder and clicked out of habit or b) you thought you would bone up on all things publishing so you could better answer those pesky questions from family members around the Thanksgiving fowl, like "How come James Patterson sells so many books but you don't?"

 “How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”

 – Dr. Seuss

 Most creative writers support themselves by either teaching or freelance work – technical writing, advertising copy, journalism

Have you ever written the ultimate idea for your book on a scrap of paper, only to lose it later? 

Have you ever misfiled an important citation or research file for your book or article project?
