• *It’s* the T-shirt, Stupid

    by Michelle Hutchinson Paraphrasing a quote from the 1992 presidential campaign felt so right for the title of this blog post. Why?

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.

While a good deal of this blog will be devoted to writing, editing, and resumes, I'll also explore topics in health, science, education, and a smattering of other areas. 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.
