"Becoming discouraged. Working at chicken processing plant. Trying to restart freelance writing service. I've sent out a lot of queries this year, made one sale, unless it falls through because of lack of pix, a few rejections but mostly no…"
"I do comfort poetry. I find that when i am stuck on what to say or wright i just wright about how i cant wright. That unblocks my thoughts and lets stuff i did not know i had in mind flow. Just a thought."
I'm best at expressing thought in written words. Lately though, it's been hard for me to write anything.I'm sure that'll change.Mainly I write fantasy and I'm trying to do some freelance non-fiction writing, once those editors start responding to my query letters.See More
"David, I think you should post samples of your work that you have done professionally instead of listing them at the top of your page. A picture says a thousand words. Look at other peoples portfolios online and see what works for them. There are…"

I saw your note in the Encouragement Group regarding the weather affecting your moods and making you depressed. There is a very real condition called S.A.D. - Seasonal Affective Disorder - and people that have it get depressed when there is a lack of sunlight. There are special lamps you can buy that mimic natural sunlight to treat this condition. Just wanted to share that info with you - I don't have any more details but I'm sure you can find them on the web if you're interested.

Welcome David. My name is Susie D. and I've only been a member of this group and this network since yesterday. Am currently unemployed due to layoff from the automobile industry. Looking to follow my dreams, which seem to be about the same as what you already do. Would really appreciate it, if you could find some time to share your experience with me. One of the things I am looking to do is to go back to school for my associates in graphic design. Have never tried my hand at it, but feel very driven that direction. But, recently became quite disheartened when most of the online schools I was considering came up with very bad rap on "RipOff Report.com". Anyway - any feedback you could provide would certainly help. Thanks, Suz D.
