It's been around 3 weeks since I started this website upgrade and this blog.  It's been a lot of work but some surprises and fun mixed in there, too. 

I notice that the real work so far is in the design of the website and in marketing or learning the market for my freelance skills.  I must spend more time doing that than anything else.  Drafting queries and making pitches for stories is the marketing piece and takes up a lot of time.  I've done more of that than writing lately.

Here's to the next quarter - hearing from queries already sent and writing articles and stories.  I set a goal of writing three short fiction stories for contests in addition to the non-fiction article writing so we'll see how that goes. 

If you visit the site, stop by and say hello on the guest tab.  It's nice to know when people are looking at the site.  Happy Easter and Passover all!
