"We need to learn to value amateurs again." Anne R. Allen

 Consider this quote from Alexandra A. Palmer, who blogs as "The Happy Amateur"

"I want to engage in life as a favorite pastime, not a profession. I want to remain… a novice who is hungry for knowledge and humble at the same time. I want to be a constant devotee and admirer of life. In other words, I want to be an amateur."

Anne R. Allen quotes your humble servant and even says that my blog is partly what inspired her post that focuses on professional and amateur writing, exploring their differences and similarities, pros and cons, etc.
I’m very happy and honored.  Anne R. Allen’s Blog (with Ruth Harris) is a very special place.  A great source of advice, encouragement and support for writers.  All are welcome.  And it’s lots of fun.  
Thank you, Anne. 

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
