Every week I point you to one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on monetizing your blog and seven things Jill Kelly has learned about writing, plus a list of thirty business books for people under thirty.

Since then I’ve written four novels and published three of them, and I’ve written two nonfiction books and published one. Here are 7 things I’ve learned so far about building a writing life.”
