Here are my posts about writing this week, along with some posts about writing from others. I posted on writing your book, the 125th anniversary of the Wall Street Journal, writing advice from William E. Blundell and why people read business books. I’m also pointing you to posts by Jeff Bullas and Michael Wade.
