Who wants to join me for my latest query and submission blitz?
I love seeing everyone's successes. When people join me, it inspires me.

I've been doing this almost every month, but decided to move the category down here. I love posting my goals for all to see. I have this thing where I shoot for 25 queries or submissions sent out a month. I started this back in May and only really made 25 once. But from all my efforts, here is what I've actually accomplished:

-- Corresponding Editor, All Info About Germany (http"//germany.allinfoabout.com)
-- City Reporter, Girls Guide to Boston (new site launching this week- http://www.girlsguidetola.com (http://www.girlsguidetola.com/))
-- articles set to appear in Fiery Foods, Herb Quarterly, and Herbs for Health

In these months, I realized that I want to specialize instead of generalize. Now I am a freelance food and travel writer as well as recipe tester and menu developer. I am passionate about food and travel, so this is natural for me.

Now, my goals for this month

Update All Info About Germany
Write more reviews for Girls Guide to Boston
write and send 25 submissions or queries
Put together my website
Do one writing exercise each day

I have one big goal--a complete first draft of a novella promised to Loose Id by Nov 1st.

I also need to write two encyclopedia articles, one non-fiction chapter and revise a pamphlet.
