SIDEUGHTS: Linda H. Schumacher told CA: "I first became interested in writing as a way to share my expertise with people who need simple and easy-to-use tools for managing projects. The book uses tools and techniques used to manage large, multi-year projects but scales them down for the entrepreneur and small business owner.

"I write best first thing in the morning when I'm fresh. I tend to write quickly and get my thoughts on paper in big chunks. I spend time revising and reformulating later, after I let a passage sit. This allows me to gain perspective and distance in order to better organize and express my thoughts.

"It's been a continual revelation learning how people have used what they've learned from the book. Feedback from readers has revealed that portions of the book gave a big 'ah-ha' moment where I least expected it. It's been gratifying to hear this feedback and build upon it with articles in my newsletter and on my Web site."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
