This is going to come as no surprise to most of you: I am a nerd. I have many interests and writing is one of them. A related interest, which Sarah likes to tease me mercilessly about, is reading about writing, learning about writing, writing about writing or anything, really, to do with writing. For example, I get help from my therapist, William Zinsser. We meet periodically and he inspires me ... to write more and to write better. I’ve never met him face to face.
