This cold weather has kept me inside for days, so cabin fever is in full effect. To remedy this I will be heading out for a change of scenery, either at a new cafe in the next town (Lawd, help me stay away from the pastries!) or the library. Where do you write and how do you deal with the isolation of writing?
Today’s list of freelance writing jobs includes a couple of very well-paying calls for submissions. Good luck!
