I found yet another great way to waste time on the Web and not get a thing done. Damn, all this research has got to help me out someday.

It’s Nextaris and I have no idea how to explain – it’s a search engine, a sharing bookmark, a web page, photo album…enough to keep you from getting your work done for a long time!


With over 20,000 newspapers out there, you are missing out on a goldmine if you are not writing for any of them! They usually need freelance help on a daily or weekly basis. If you have a niche, you could probably even get syndicated.

This is a great group I found that sends a newsletter once a month for information on this and other freelancing tips, articles, links and other helpful info.

Another great web site full of articles, jobs and great information. It’s called SunOasis. Who’d a thunk?

Also, be sure to check in at the web site for regular job postings, art and other great freelancing information. She also does the market update at Writers Market web site.

Um, let’s see. It seems we should all be reading “A Million Little Pieces” (which I offer on this site) – I love the title and the cover art of the book. Also, the author seems genuinly nice and down to earth. But, I won’t be buying it – I am way too jealous of him. Isn’t that horrible. Well, at least I admit it. He writes this book – which is excellent, I know – and gets on Oprah and is now famous. After spending a childhood and young adulthood of being an asshole, which he admits. I spent my whole childhood much the same way – but, girls are considered bitches – and I want to be on Oprah. Waa waa.

Well, I guess I would need to actually get my book finished and sent off before that would happen, right?

But, seriously, I am also afraid to buy it because it is so close to home for me and I am writing a very similiar “memoir” and it is so painful just doing my own. Many times I can’t finish because I start crying. And his famous quote from the book still holds true for me right now…

“Just hold on”.

Here is a newsletter I came across with great articles and books that offer insight and resources for keeping our marriages strong – and we all need that sometimes! I think we are going through the 12 years itch right now and I swear it’s a real thing! All my friends had major issues after 12 years of marriage.

Maybe it’s just because we are 12 years older, pre or full menopausal and are sick of all the BS…we realize how much work it is for how little payoff – ok…I obviously need this newsletter.
