    Before she fled the corporate world to freelance, Abigail Green wrote an essay on work/life balance. It appeared in the Boston Globe on Sunday, June 10: http://www.boston.com/jobs/news/articles/2007/06/10/finding_personal_space_at_work_can_be_tough/?page=1

    Hi All,
    I’ve just published my first novel, Out of the Ordinary, through booklocker.com and it has been a surprisingly easy, wonderfully professional and helpful experience. Not at all what I was expecting.

    Now that I’m holding the finished novel, printed, bound and ready to sell in my hand it’s the strangest feeling. A wonderful sense of accomplishment… pride in a job well done… and absolute terror that everyone will hate it and tell me I;m a talentless hack.

    I’m having the hardest time telling my friends and family about the new book… does anyone else struggle with this?

    Thanks for the chance to share, and congratulations to all the other budding (or established) authors out there!

    Take good care,

    Columnist Susan Clark reporting in. (Wonder what happened to my prior post? Maybe cyber-gremlins.) My first check from the Portland Tribune arrived for an article based on my last year’s column in WOTR. Yippee!

    I have a new wordpress blog (http://susanwclark.wordpress.com) and have articles coming out in the next issues of both In Good Tilth and Touch the Soil (due out any day in health food stores, coops, etc).

    I plan to pitch a gardening book at the Willamette Writers conference. Putting it here is a step toward making that real!

    Did I mention that my last article for In Good Tilth was mentioned by the Utne Reader – me by name, and my article as world-changing. What a boost!

    I’m having a good time. Maybe not the money kind, but still, good results this past month. I submitted my novel to 18 agents and have had three request to read the manuscript. The positive feedback has prompted me to outline the sequel and start Book 2 to my Carolina Slade agricultural mysteries.

    Also, I’m the feature in Byline Magazine this month – Self-Promotion From a Shy Writer. It looks great.

    Keep writing!

    Lisa Gates: On June 2 I had a short story/personal essay published with Literary Mama–http://www.literarymama.com/litreflections/

    The same story is in the editing stage with a print literary mag (I’ll be able to name them next month, I hope).

    Thanks to all who stop by to read about writing and coaching writers at Design Your Writing Life. It is a pleasure to be in your company!

    Christina Katz has written (and published) so much in the past three years that her computer is about to explode! She just finished a holiday feature for Country Sampler Magazine, completed the first leg of her Writer Mama Book Tour (which ended with a bang! in NYC), wrapped up two amazing classes, and is gearing up to pitch her next two books. The best word to describe how she feels about having graduated from the first-time-published-author phase is relieved. She cannot wait for a week-long summer vacation with her family at the end of this month. Happy summer!

    I sold a piece to Chicken Soup for the Chocolate Lover’s Soul. It will be out in November, I think.

    Hi! I just started freelancing in January. I’ve had about 5 articles accepted by Next Step Magazine, and I’ve also completed two freelance assignments for the Augsburg Fortress publishing house.

    Anyway, thanks for the motivating newsletter–it helps keep me going. I have two little boys (5 and 2), so your content is perfect for me…I do all of my writing during naps & preschool.

    What a terrific forum to hear of others’ successes. I am looking forward to personal essays in Cup of Comfort for Writers and Cup of Comfort for Dog-Lovers coming out late summer, Chicken Soup for Tea-Lovers and Chicken Soup for Chocolate Lovers out in November, and Cup of Comfort for Single Moms and Cup of Comfort for Horse Lovers out next Spring. How lucky I feel to share all this good news.
