░░░░░ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ░░░░░

How many times have you talked yourself out of writing a
query, submitting a story or completing a writing goal?

Several years ago I sat down and made a list of short and
long term goals. Each goal was based on the end result. I
set out to challenge myself more than I've never done
before.

During the course of trying to meet these goals I suddenly
became filled with doubt, fear and hesitation. I started
thinking more negative thoughts than positive. I envisioned
myself not meeting my goals.

While having lunch with a close friend I told her about
my sudden hesitation with my goals. I vividly remember
saying that perhaps I should quit and redefine my plans
to something more attainable. Setting down her fork, she
looked me straight in the eye and simply said, "Kim,
don't defeat yourself before you've been defeated."

Wow! What a powerful statement.

Every time I had doubts I thought about her words and
shoved the negativity aside and concentrated only on the
current task that would push me forward. I'm happy to say
that with a lot of work, and perseverance I met my goals.

So, the next time you think you can't write an acceptable
query, or you find an excuse not to take on or complete a
project, or you want to give up on your goals, stop and
think about that quote and most importantly don't defeat
yourself before you've been defeated.

I wish you a success-filled, stress-free month.

"Timing: A Hidden Writer's Block"
by Marilyn Freeman

ииииииииииииииииииииииииии

Have you ever heard the saying, "In Real Estate it's about
Location, Location, Location?" Well, I'm here to tell you
in the "World of Submitting" it's all about Timing, Timing,
Timing. I say this with experience. Yes, I lost three or
more sales because of lousy timing. Each time the editor
informed me my submission was good but it was the wrong
time.

* Theme Lists:

With my very first submission, (which was sent out after
much encouragement from my writing instructor) I received a
rejection. Of course, I knew it was more a possibility to
receive a rejection than an acceptance. After all it was my
first time out in the real world of submissions. I was not
upset with the rejection. I was upset because of the
timing. I missed a good chance of being published. I
received a handwritten note from the editor saying,

"We regret we don't have an opening for your manuscript. It
would have fit in with our doll theme issue, but it is
full. Thank you for submitting."

If I had taken the time to write the publisher first and
request the theme list, I would have known when to send in
my doll article. I would have known I didn't have a chance
because of the issue time. In short, the truth is, I did
not do my homework.

1. Take the time to research your market.

2. Write a letter requesting a copy of the theme list and
guidelines.

3. Always include a self addressed stamped envelope.

* Holiday Submissions

I wrote a Christmas article without ever thinking about
when I was submitting. I mailed it in September thinking
they had plenty of time before Christmas. After all it was
a wonderful article. How could I miss? How arrogant of me!
I quickly received this hand written rejection:

"Good idea, but I have Christmas ideas overflowing my files
right now!"

When submitting an article, or story written exclusively
for a certain holiday be sure you send it well in advance.
Always remember, you are not the only writer submitting
wonderful material. You should mail your holiday submission
six to eight months ahead of the holiday. Some publishers
plan their publications a year in advance.

* Study the Publication:

I submitted an article only to discover many other writers
had the same idea for an article. Once again, I had (in my
mind) the perfect article. I submitted my article only to
quickly receive this note from the editor:

"This is a really well written article: well thought out,
well organized, and well written. But I'm afraid that I
recently bought two articles on this subject, and I won't
need another one for quite some time. I'm sorry the timing
was so bad!"

Before you submit to any publication try to read an issue.
Check if your subject matter is possibly over done. If you
see many stories or articles on a particular subject
matter, chances are you will not make the sale. There are
many ways you can do this:

1. Library

2. Book stores

3. Check the publication's Web site.

4. Write to the publication and request a sample issue.
(You may have to pay a small fee and send a self addressed
stamped envelope.)

* Timing...timing...timing:

As writers trying to succeed in the submitting world, we
have so many things to remember. Timing is just one of our
road blocks to conquer, but it's an easy one if we just do
our homework.

" A Little Structure Goes A Long Way"
by Hilary Evans

ииииииииииииииииииииииииии

When my husband was laid off, I was happier than most
people would have been. Although his unemployment wasn't
as much as his paycheck, we'd be okay financially. It would
be tight and we had a baby on the way. But there was a
glimmer of promise too. With hubby home I would have a
helping hand, and a lot more time for writing. Suddenly
fame and fortune seemed close at hand.

Unfortunately more time to write is not always such a good
thing. Soon I discovered that full days could be wasted
clacking away at keys, only to be followed up by deleting
whole pages. Why oh why was writing so difficult? Maybe I
wasn't meant for fame, and fortune just causes trouble
anyway. I found myself writing less and less, and
pretending to write more and more.

As if this frustration wasn't bad enough, the house was
falling apart around me and my family was getting restless
of staying inside. They wanted to be outdoors playing in
the crisp, warm-winter air. Dragging myself from the
computer was almost painful. I was lost sitting at the
screen, but when away all I could think of was getting back
to it. I kept thinking, maybe something would
change. It never did.

Shortly our son was born. This is where the benefit of my
husband being home really kicked in. Every minute of the
day our preschooler and toddler spent harassing him with
games, tantrums and questions. "Who is that guy daddy? Who
is him? That guy right there? Oh, that's him" On and on,
while I sat quietly bonding with our newborn. Feeding him
and making him feel loved, and of course, sitting up with
him at night. So we were both saints in our own right.
In the beginning there wasn't time for anything else but
the baby, but quickly a pattern presented itself. A nightly
routine began to take shape, and although it wasn't the
most convenient one imaginable, it gave me enough structure
to fit writing in. At 11 p.m. Lian would have his first
nightly nip, again at 2 and by 4:30 he was ready to eat and
get up for the morning. Seeing as our older children (along
with my brain) didn't regularly get up before 7, I had 2+
hours to get a leg up on my career.

Surprisingly I was getting more accomplished in these few
hours a week than I had previously, while investing entire
days to the trade. No longer was my writing rambling and
unfocused. No more did I keep my pinky queued for the
delete key. I was making real progress...and getting
published. It's amazing what a little restriction can do.

Working from home with young children is an easy choice to
make and a difficult task to accomplish. Most parents work
at home for a reason, and sacrifice a little salary in the
bargain. Hiring a sitter while you work eight hours a day
isn't an option for most. Anyway, what is the fun of
staying home if it means staying away from your family?

No, one of my goals when I decided to stay home was to
provide a learning environment for my children. Watching me
sit and scream at the computer wasn't teaching them
anything productive. Having them sit and stare at the TV
would be teaching them even less. The only thing to do was
to rearrange my work around their play, and amazingly it's
worked.

Lian and I still wake up everyday at 4:30. I turn the
computer on and feed him, and off starts our day. I work
feverishly, watching the clock and listening for tiny feet
and morning voices. Soon enough our son comes hopping down
each stair at a time and his sister slides down right
behind him. My writing day is over, by my mommy day has
just begun.

"What Shall I Write About?"
by Nadia Ali

ииииииииииииииииииииииии

There is peace at last in your writers' home office. The
little ones have fallen asleep or the bigger ones have
left for school and at last you have the time to write.

Your eyes are fixed to the blank page on your computer
screen and your fingers lay in wait ready to whip out your
best article yet. But nothing happens. Your mind is a
flutter as you run up and its corridors desperate to
find something...anything to write about!

It's a difficult place to be, not to mention frustrating.

So what should you write about? Well, there's always that
article on the do-it-yourself project that you would like
to share with readers or even those writer's guidelines
you've got on the animal kingdom that may be of interest
to write, but will take a lot of research. Not knowing
how long you have again until the next interruption, try a
topic you know about, one that you can write with
experience. Hmmm? Still thinking?

It's parenting! There are many Internet sites and
magazines that will pay for your words of wisdom. Think
about possible titles for things you have learned as a
parent, let's see:

10 Tips for Traveling with a Toddler

Encouraging your Child's Development

Making Homework Fun

Coping with your Child's Behavior

Make Your Own Nutritional Baby Food

10 Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy

As you can see, there are numerous topics you can
write about. You don't need to be an expert in the field of
parenting to submit articles to parenting magazines or
Internet sites. Just speak with authority, confidence and
personalize it. You can also get some quotes to back up
your statements, statistics and even some suggested
further reading material or related Web sites to show the
editor that you know what you are talking about. Keep track
of all your source information, just in case an editor
wants to know where you got your supporting information
from.

Male writers can contribute to the topic of parenting:

Dads are Parents Too

Introducing Sports to your Kids

Ways to Spoil-proof your Kids

10 Ways to Make a Mom's Day

Teaching Your Child Manners

So now that you have some ideas to think over where do you
find parenting writer's guidelines? The best way to find
them is by going to your favorite search engine and
searching for "parenting magazines writer's guidelines." My
search engine came up with 3,240. Some of the guidelines
appear to be out of date, so use the e-mail contact address
to ask the editor if the guidelines you found are present.
Try local parenting magazines first. You can get a good
idea of what is available locally by clicking on the
following link:

http://www.newsdirectory.com

You can also search through the writer guidelines
database sites that feature mostly national markets. Select
the parenting and family category, if applicable.

http://www.awoc.com/guidelines.cfm

http://www.writersdatabase.com/family.shtml

Also if you have a favorite parenting magazine, you can
always check for their writer's guidelines, be it by
contacting the editor via postal mail or by checking their
"about us" or "contact us" on their Web site, if
applicable. Make sure in all avenues that you are familiar
with the style, format and language of the magazine. Don't
send articles that are specifically written by their
in-house staff or resident professional.

So, now that you know you are a wealth of information and
there are editors out there who are willing to buy your
written words of experience, concentrate, think of
something specific and get typing. You never know,
parenting could just be your niche market.

"The Writing Mom: A guide to juggling writing and parenting"
by Gwen Morrison

ииииииииииииииииииииииии

Being a writer, and being a mom has its advantages, but it
can also have its downfalls. It isn't always the easiest
thing to do--working at home. Home is where busy families
gather and sometimes that core becomes chaos, interfering
with the creative processes of a writer.

Cindy LaFerle, freelance writer and mom of a 16-year-old
boy, has been doing it a while and has some tips to share.

"I have my own place in the house, with a door that I can
close. It's my own sacred place with my favorite books,
writing tools, computer and all my published articles,"
says Cindy of the room in her house that she uses as an
office.

It is important to have a place in the house to call your
own. It can be a kitchen table, a corner of the family
room, or a spare room turned home office--wherever it is,
make it yours. Surround yourself with writing
paraphernalia--writing tools, books, stamps, scribble pads,
pens of all kinds--and have a little fun with it. Add a
personal touch to the room to make it more your own. It
might be a favorite picture on the wall, family
photographs, or a wonderful scented candle--whatever makes
it a pleasant place to work.

Setting up the office is the first step in the art of
juggling a career in writing and keeping in touch with
family responsibilities. Both jobs are huge. Starting out
on the right track can make the transition from one job to
the next a lot easier. Some ways to help ease the
adjustments are outlined below:

* Be organized

* Delegate household duties

* Treat your writing as it is...a career

* Keep a schedule each day of what needs to be done at both
jobs.

* Set the rules for kids (and spouses) up front so there is
no confusion.

* Keep your sense of humor (after all they are just kids...)

* Involve kids in helping you where it is possible.

"Like so many other moms, I suffer from mom guilt--a worry
that I am either not doing enough for my family, or not
achieving enough in my career," says Ms. LaFerle of her own
experiences in balancing both parts of her day.

Stop feeling guilty! To be a good parent, you have to be a
whole person. Following your dreams of being a writer is a
commendable pursuit. It is definitely sending your children
a wonderful message. In the end, your kids will be proud of
you for following your heart and building a career. Besides,
a few extra chores handed out to a 10-year-old will not
harm him, and I do believe that most adults know how to run
a dishwasher!

Try to keep an even balance of both parts of your daily
schedule. When kids are younger, this will not be an easy
undertaking. Carve out times of the day when your kids are
napping and write. Don't scrub the floor (unless they are
really disgusting), don't call a friend, use this break in
the day and write. But make sure you write every day, even
if it's a letter to a friend. It is habit forming, and you
will find the time when you fall into that habit. Taking
time for you is really ok.

It does become a little easier to balance being a writer
and a parent as the children enter the school age years.
This opens up a whole new feeling of independence for the
writer. This is the perfect opportunity to set up an
effective schedule that allows you to write during part of
the day, and take care of other family needs another part
of the day. Don't forget to delegate, even when you feel
you have more time. Being a writer is a business that you
want to grow...and you will benefit from time spent on
perfecting it.

Speaking of delegation--kids hate the word once they learn
the meaning, and parents can't use it enough. There are
many ways a family can work together to accomplish all that
needs to be done. This way makes mom and dad feel less
pressured to "do it all," and it builds great values of
hard work in growing children. Truly a win-win situation!

Through it all try to keep a realistic expectation of what
you can accomplish in a day. If a deadline is looming at
the end of the week, then don't make the beds for a few
days--the house will not fall apart for lack of clean
sheets! Don't' overdo it; nobody wins when you are too tired
to be with them. When given the choice between cooking a
gourmet meal and taking the kids for a bike ride--always
opt for fun. Kids don't really care that much whether
they eat peanut butter sandwiches or stuffed cannelloni,
they will benefit more from your undivided attention.

Juggling parenting and a writing career is not as daunting
as it sounds. With a little planning, a supportive family,
and a lot of give and take, it is possible to be successful
in both areas of your life. Generally, children are very
flexible as long as they are not feeling like they are
being put on the back burner. Keep the communication going,
be there for your family but allow yourself to take time
out for your own passions and pursuits.

So the next time you are scrubbing crayon off the
wall, or printing out another copy of your article because
your child has spilled grape juice on the original--smile--
at the very least all of these obstacles you are facing
will make great storylines!
