Howdy Zonie. I can see Peoria from my home, kinda' up on the side of a hill here in New River. I can also see I-17, about a half-mile from here as the vulture flies. Depending on the wind, I can sometimes hear the drone of traffic, but it's usually pretty quiet out here ... great for writing.

Mostly I write about writing, freelancing and websites. I spend more of my work time now editing others' writing, ghostwriting,and helping beginners get their books published. Over the last four decades, I've written in just about all media and on many, many subjects, never really specializing. Most of my pieces are nonfiction, although I have a few poems published and wrote a couple of unpublished novels. I also create websites for other writers and help them with Internet marketing.

Howdy! Just adding my intro to the list:

I started working in a documentation production studio in Seattle a few years ago, formatting translated books for print and taking whatever assignments I could. Now, I write whatever is needed, switching between tech writing, articles, corporate ghostwriting, training materials, presentations and copywriting.

Before writing, I ran a graphic design company.
Before graphics, I ran a theatrical production company.
Before theatre, I was a classical musician.

The whole time, I've been an avid roadtripper, nature enthusiast, organization freak, office supply addict... and a bit of an eccentric. Really.

Anyway, after reading this forum for several months, I thought it was about time to actually log in and participate!

Welcome! It's a great group (as you've already noticed). Are you still in the Seattle area?

Hi, all. I've been away from this forum for a long while. I don't even know that I've ever participated that much, to be honest, but I love Writer's Weekly!

I'm Jen, and I'm a freelance writer/editor. I have worked as a stringer for a few local publications, I've done some online writing, and I was once a section editor for an ezine geared toward creative women.

I was absent from my writing career for about a year or a year and a half, due to personal problems and being in "survival" mode. (My freelancing has been a side gig for me, though I sincerely want to grow it into THE gig.) I'm just now starting to put myself back out there for freelance work.

In addition to seeking freelance writing assignments, however, I am also gearing up to get two chapbooks published in 2008. Anyone have any advice? Do I need to write book proposals for chapbooks? I have an idea for a third book, as well--a prose project--but I'm going to wait until after the chapbooks are completed and working their way through the pipeline.

Examples of my work--by no means a complete collection--can be seen at:

http://paper_clip.livejournal.com
http://cyberhippi.blogspot.com

Clips are provided to prospective employers and clients upon request. These 3 links are simply places online I've put some samples. I intend to add to them over time.

It's nice to meet everyone.

Hi Jen!

I can't help you -I don't even know what a chapbook is, but here are some extremely yummy virtual brownies. My mom made them for my birthday.

If I eat any more sweets I won't be ON the forum, I will BE the forum!

*BUMP*

Do the bump.

Oh-oh-oh

Do the Bump!

If you're new, fill us in on who you are and what you write and your goals, dreams, and aspirations. We'll also like you better if you give us all some chocolate.

Just kidding. (well, maybe not)
