I've never been one to follow conventional wisdom—at least when it doesn't make sense to me—and I'm not about to start now. Conventional wisdom says to limit your blog to one topic (e.g., writing) or to related topics (e.g., writing, reading, publishing), but my interests are too diverse.

After all, I'm not only an editor and writer, but I am or have been a dentist, teacher, naval officer, environmental researcher, wife, parent, and pet owner.

I hope you'll take some time to provide comments on the posts.
