How do I receive Bitcoins from my clients who owe me money? I do not have a web site. Currently I send my clients an invoice. They discharge the invoice by sending me a check drawn on their bank checking account. Do I have to send them a Bitcoin "key" or account number of some kind?

You send them a bitcoin address along with the invoice. Use a different address each time, so that you can tell who paid you.

There are do-it-yourself methods (e.g., generate addresses using the bulk mode of BitAddress.org and send those out as payment addresses) but that requires a fair amount of tracking and manual effort.

You can instead use a payment processor to send out invoices. For instance, Coinbase offers e-mail invoices as well as payment pages, and BitPay offers a similar payment page as well.
