One of the best interviews I've read on the writing life by someone who made it on their own. (His book Wool is worth the read, too.)

Howey's craft is good, and my hat is off to him for making it on his own. (Something I'd like to do myself.) For those writers interested, he is the keynote speaker at a writer's conference coming up April 16-18 in Charleston, SC. You can read about it here: http://janefriedman.com/2013/11/14/writing-on-the-ether-116

In the cockpit at sunrise; best seat in the house.

As occasionally happens during the winter months, I must fly someone to Miami, where I'll probably fret about the heat. Alas.

We've all had mentors who helped us. Now, for many of us, it's time to be one:

Unlike Matt, the author of this article, I enjoy flying, which will be obvious to those who examine my picture. Still, when I'm not in the cockpit but riding in coach, I enjoy listening to those seated next to me. It opens the door for the gospel and often provides great material for writing.

Introduction
