“I hate writing. But I love having written.”

— Paraphrased from various sources, including sportswriter Oscar Madison, played by Jack Klugman in the television series “The Odd Couple”

It has been said that writing is the art of re-writing. Anyone who has spent much time at this craft knows it is often a messy business, mentally and physically. (Picture crumpled balls of paper scattered around a wastebasket.) A writer’s source material, when pulled from a drawer or off a shelf, can overrun an otherwise tidy desk surface, making it look more like a workbench than a piece of office furniture. But there are ways to make the chore less arduous and the result more rewarding. That is what this website tries to show.
