This article sort of freaked me out. Freelance writing's unfortunate model

But all in all. I think it's an okay time to be doing what I'm doing. I have a paper I write for that I love and that I think pays me pretty fairly. Yes, writing for internet is always going to be a sucktastic job, but it might just be able to fill in some cracks in my budget and give me new adventures. Plus, I'm fortunate to live in a area that gets a lot of great people come and visit, so the Arts & Entertainment dept of my local paper will always have fun things for me to do. Not to mention the books section. *sigh* Books Section.see .. it's sad to see so many of those go away, meanwhile, ours is FLOURISHING!

Meanwhile, the pull of the hospitality industry is calling to me. More specifically, it's ability to mesh together all the things I love. Imagine having a job where you get to meet new people, cook amazing dishes for them, and show them amazing parts of this great country. Also, I'd love to be able to market it towards writers, ala Writers Retreats. I got so many ideas! This HAS to be my year to get some of these things in the works!

This was one of the funnest interviews I've ever done...and not nearly as unprintable as I had thought. :))

David Baldacci: A writer's job is never done

"Being a writer is my job. I have an office that I go to everyday, but that doesn't mean that I write every day. Artificial goals like a certain words or pages a day sound ridiculous to me," said Baldacci.

*meep* Just in time for NaNoWriMo!

Yes, I can see his point. But if you aren't lucky enough to make your living with selling the same book over and over best sellers...you have to do what you have to do to make it and if that means ridiculous self-imposed word counts for one month...then so be it.

Write on NaNoers!

I was wondering why I couldn't find it, turns out my byline is missing from the online version...oh well...here it is anyway...

This is the article I wrote on Lemony Snicket and his newest book for children "The Composer is Dead."

He is an interesting man...but you knew that didn't you?
