░░░░░ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ░░░░░

Dear Writers,

I'm happy to announce I am once again married to a
civilian. (No, I didn't get divorced and remarried since
the last issue.) As you may recall my husband is an MP in the
Army Reserves and on October 1, 2001 his unit was activated.

A few days ago, On September 28 my husband's unit was
demobilized and he returned home for good (or until he gets
activated again).

This past year has given me an even greater appreciation
and respect for spouses of active duty soldiers, especially
those on Rapid Deployment Forces.

FYI: I will be out of the office on a nonworking vacation
October 3-6. If you e-mail me during this time please be
patient as I will respond to all e-mails when I return
to the office.

Speaking of e-mailing me, I want your feedback. Do you have
any suggestions on how I can improve this publication? I
value your opinion and look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful, safe and prosperous month.

Kim Wilson

"Journaling: Saving the Stories of Your Life"
by Christine Collier

ииииииииииииииииииииииииии

How valuable is a journal to a writer? I say very valuable.

It's a book full of story ideas just waiting to be written.
I kept a diary as young as ten-years-old. That little book
without a cover floated around for years. I now keep it
with the rest of my journals. It tells of the birth of
brothers and sisters, the excitement of moving and the
first day of school. I kept one all through junior high and
high school. My mundane school years are written in just a
few lines each day. However, from these everyday remarks I
remember how it felt to get an A in Algebra and how icky it
was to dissect a crayfish in Biology. What it felt like at
school the day JFK was assassinated. How about when the
Beatles came to America and sang on the Ed Sullivan show?

It's also fun to hear what things cost years ago.
I didn't keep one all the years I raised my kids, I wish I
had. I started writing again almost ten years ago. Now I
treat my journals as books of life memories to pass down to
my children. I don't write everyday. Sometimes it will be
close to a month. However, I make a note if something is
valuable and should be remembered. Then I will write it the
next time I make an entry.

Of course the entire year before 2000 was packed with news
items of Y2K. What would happen at the stroke of midnight?
It's already fascinating to read back on this subject. The
hype was incredible! Any major news item or interesting
stories in our newspaper is cut and taped in my journal
with my personal reaction. I add little invitation cards
and thank you notes, small pictures, cartoons, and the
stuff of life!

Last summer a meteor went over our house; our house shook
so much I thought there had been an explosion. The dog's
bark sounded unusual. I described this in my journal. The
newspapers were filled with articles about it the next day.
I cut out the ones that most interested me. Now I have a
description of this real event to draw from if I ever want
to write an article or even a fiction story.

So many things happen everyday that we can't possibly
remember them all. However, it doesn't have to be a major
news story to generate a story. Most fiction for children
comes from everyday happenings.

I think journaling is wonderful for anyone but if you're a
writer it's almost a must. It could only improve your
writing skills. You're writing a living history for your
family to pass down. Don't worry if it seems like a boring
entry, it won't be in a few years.

Maybe keeping a journal of your life doesn't interest you.
What about a writer's journal, filled with writing tips,
descriptions of characters and scenery, outlines of
possible stories, or potential plots? You'll be very happy
you did the next time you sit down to write the great
American novel!

NEW COLUMN-----> REGIONAL REVIEWS

by Hilary Evans

...................................

The publishing world changes quickly. This is especially
true at regional magazines where staffs are smaller, and
the magazines beat to the rhythm of the local drum. Pay
special attention to these markets' recent changes.

County Families
http://www.countyfamilies.com/guidelines.html

P.O. Box 29
Merritt, MI 49667
Attn: Linda Sherwood, Editor
E-mail: editor@countyfamilies.com

County Families Magazine covers northern Michigan. The
"Travelin," "Laugh Lines," "Teen Scene," and "Parent
Talk" departments are open to freelancers, and should fall
between 600-800 words. Features are also needed, and are
expected to be 1200-1800 words.

It's especially important, as it is with most regional
markets, that articles be tailored to parents in the area.
This can be done using local experts, or highlighting
community events and resources.

Linda Sherwood is a wonderful woman to deal with, and as
such, demands appropriate respect. "Submissions and/or
queries sent by e-mail using bcc may not receive a
response," she states candidly.

"I've found that many of the submissions I receive using
blind carbon copy are from people that don't even know
what publications they are sending the submission out to.
I don't have a problem with simultaneous submissions as
long as people who are sending 'know' they are sending it
to me."

Articles may be sent online in the body of an e-mail.
Viruses prevent many editors from opening attachments.
(When in doubt, check it out by asking.) You may also send
your query and clips, or submission by postal mail. Just
remember to include a SASE.

A feature for County Families will bring in $100 to $200.
Department articles and reprints top out at $50. For those
who plan on rewriting a previously printed article to sell
for first rights, Mrs. Sherwood expects at least half of
the story to be rewritten.

Previously, County Families paid 10 days after
publication. That has now moved to 30 days, and the editor
appreciates at least two weeks between the end of the
month and receiving an invoice. In other words, if your
article appeared in the November issue, you should wait
until December 14 before sending an invoice.

DallasChild
http://www.dallaschild.com

4275 Kellway Circle, #146
Addison, Texas 75001
Attn: Shelly Moon, Editor
E-mail: smoon@dallaschild.com

Shelly Moon is the new editor for DallasChild, and the
change has had an effect on several policies. While
DallasChild doesn't list its guidelines at the Web site,
Shelly was good enough to share the magazines needs of the
last few weeks.

"[Articles] must contain a strong local (Dallas, Fort
Worth or suburban D/FW) angle and be informative in
nature," she says. The former guidelines gave the distinct
impression of "locals only."

However, DallasChild's format is still more about
information than experience. This market is not interested
in essays, but in factual information that parents -
especially those in the Dallas area - can use.

"Queries should contain a clear explanation of the story
your are proposing and a timeline. Also include copies of
previously published work," says Shelly. One thing is for
sure, they shouldn't come over the phone. This editor
accepts queries by letter or e-mail only.

print.

"Coping as a Stay-At-Home Writer"
by Suzanne Willett

ииииииииииииииииииииииии

I am a standup comedian working from home when I'm not on
the road. Nobody takes my writing career seriously, much
less my comedy. However, to make myself look like a
productive member of society, I always round up whatever
I've made for a week of comedy. (Ex: $500 round to $1000.
Hey, I'm the only one doing my taxes.)

The trick to a daily schedule is simple: knowing what are
necessary daily activities and optional activities. These
do not have to follow a chronological sequence. In fact, my
activities follow the path of a superball. I usually start
my day by dropping my kids off to school. Then I search the
Web for places that might have a remote interest in my
writing. Which means I never shower before lunch. I leave
it to you to determine which activities are optional.

The next trick is to combine activities like showering,
lunch and grocery shopping. These can be visualized like a
Venn diagram: the overall mindless activity encompassing
the discrete instances of mindless activities.

Unfortunately, it's not the null set.

In order to streamline my daily schedule, I usually write
lists of things I have to do. Because, as we all know, there
are very few things in life more satisfying than taking
your pen and drawing it commandingly across a page. It's
that primeval ink-slashing urge in all of us. Now, the list
might say, "Things I have to do Today," but again, time can
be rounded up too. (Ex: 5 days rounds to one week.) Do NOT
arrange the list in decreasing order of priority. It looks
like you didn't finish the job. Sprinkle the critical
activities between the trivial, and you'll never be accused
of being a slaggard.

You must also realize that the hours between 3:00 p.m. and
5:00 p.m. are the "blackout" hours for any stay-at-home
writer. This is very similar to AA - at that time we must
admit that our lives have become unmanageable. This step
must NEVER be forgotten. Do it, and you will be unable to
complete a sentence during this period. See? Ok. Right.

Finally, I do most of my creative work in bed. While this
may sound unorthodox, it has typically been quite
effective. It is when I am most relaxed that the stream of
consciousness writing takes over, and takes me to places I
would never dare to go while anticipating my shower.

Besides, when someone knocks at my bedroom door, I can
scream, "I'm sleeping!"

"10 Tips for Making Interviews Easier"
by Tina L. Miller

ииииииииииииииииииииииии

You did it! You really did it! An editor assigned you a
story, and now you need to interview the subject of the
article to write the piece.

If this is the point where you usually panic, you're not
alone. Many writers start to choke up when faced with
conducting an actual interview. If you're afraid you will
find yourself tongue-tied and red-faced when the big day
arrives, this article is for you. Here are 10 tried and
true tips for making interviews easier.

1. Do your research. Find out as much about the potential
interviewee as you can before the interview. Is this person
a local celebrity or business person? Check to see if local
papers have run stories on this person in the past and read
them for background information. Ask your editor to provide
you with all the facts he or she has available. Your editor
may have received a press release or media kit prior to
assigning the story. Ask around and see what's out there.

2. Get a clear concept of what the editor wants. Most
editors have a pretty good idea of what they expect to find
in a story before they even assign it. Talk to your editor
and be sure you understand exactly what he or she is
looking for. Will this be a human interest story? A
business feature? Are facts and figures important? Are you
looking for a little-known angle? Is this a straight up
news feature? Should your piece tie in to something in
particular? Are you trying to get an "inside scoop" on
something? Is it important to cover this person's history
or just recent accomplishments? Etc. Knowing what kind of
information you're fishing for is half the battle.

3. Write a rough draft. Based on what the editor tells you,
you may already be able to formulate an idea of what this
article might sound like - before you've even met the
interviewee. While this doesn't always work, in many
instances it's worked for me. I write a really rough,
sketchy draft of what I expect the interviewee to say or
talk about, leaving out all the details and quotes I don't
yet have. For instance, if I'm writing a piece about a
musician, chances are I may want to start out talking about
where she grew up, how old she was when she started in the
business, how she got started, and her first big break. By
sketching out at least some semblance of how the article
might go - and this is always subject to change based on
what you learn in the actual interview - it helps you feel
better prepared. And incidentally, if you did your homework
in tip one, you'll probably already have half the
information you need to write the piece.

4. Make a list of questions. Prepare a list of questions
you want to ask the interviewee. Using your rough draft and
your general feel for the subject, compose questions that
will get to the heart of the story. Remember your readers
want to know the who, what, where, when, why, and how. Make
sure your questions will elicit all of that basic
information. Then dig deeper. Design questions that explore
how the subject feels about a particular issue or event.
Find out what makes her tick. Always ask questions that
will require more than a yes or no answer.

5. Don't take anything for granted. Always double check all
your facts, even the ones you think you know. Other sources
may contain mistakes, and you don't want to duplicate their
errors. So double check everything from the spelling of
first and last names to the spelling of the company name,
dates, ages, identification of people in pertinent photos,
job titles, etc.

6. Tongue-tied? get the interviewee talking. During a
good interview, the interviewee will do 85 to 90 percent
of the talking. It doesn't much matter if you're nervous
talking to an important person. Your job isn't really to
talk - it's more to listen and to inquire, ask questions
that will stimulate interesting discussion and commentary
from the interviewee, and guide the process so you can get
the information you need along with a few good quotes.

Resist the temptation to follow the interviewee's funny
story with your own cute kid story. The focus of all the
attention should be on your subject. Keep coming back to
her and let her know you're interested in what she has to
say.

7. Keep control of the interview. You're a busy person.
Chances are very good that your subject is even busier. But
sometimes the interview can take an unexpected turn or the
interviewee just launches off onto some tangent that has
nothing whatsoever to do with the piece you're writing and
you can lose valuable time. Up front specify a timeframe
for the interview, such as 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Then if the
interviewee wanders off during the conversation, politely
but firmly bring her back to the subject by reminding her
of the time and that you know how busy she is, and then
get back to the questions at hand.

8. Don't tell your subject he or she can read the piece
before it goes to print. Many publications have policies
strictly prohibiting this, and even if they don't, you need
to write the real story without worrying that the subject
will want to change things or critique the piece. What's
more, that's the editor's job, and the piece may very well
be changed somewhat during the editing process after it
leaves your hands, so you don't want an interviewee
thinking they have the final control over the story. As
long as you are fair and ethical in what you are writing
and you don't use quotes that will make the subject look
stupid or that could be taken out of context, you needn't
worry too much that your subject will be disappointed with
the article.

9. Come prepared. How will you record the facts and
information you gather? How will you ensure you are quoting
the subject accurately? Some writers take copious notes
while others jot down just the few things they feel are
pertinent to the story - all in longhand. When you're just
starting out, you may feel inadequate to conducting the
interview and simultaneously determining which information
may or may not be important to the story, so you may be
more comfortable getting all of the information - every
word - until you are more experienced. You may want to use
a small tape recorder to actually record the interview so
you can listen to it again later or perhaps you can put
your shorthand or speed writing skills to work. (If you
take a tape recorder, make sure you have extra batteries
on hand and are thoroughly familiar with how to operate the
device before you go to do the interview. Trust me. I've
had several embarrassing moments fumbling with a fidgety
machine.) For interviews conducted by phone, I usually just
type as I talk with the subject and capture everything I
need on the PC - even if some of it is in my own
abbreviated version of speedwriting. Some writers recommend
using a tape recorder and taking notes by hand. You can
always go back and listen to the recording if you have
questions, and if the tape recorder fails for some reason,
you still have your notes.

10. Relax and enjoy the experience! Most people love to be
interviewed. They are flattered and honored that someone
thinks they are interesting and worthy of being written
about. Many times, they are also even more nervous than
you are! Try to act like a professional (fake it 'til you
make it even if this is your first interview) and keep your
composure. Take a genuine interest in the subject you're
speaking with. Soon you'll find yourself so caught up in
what the person is saying that you'll forget this is your
job! And it's amazing how many interesting things you will
learn and how many interesting contacts you will make -
which often come in handy when you least expect it. In a
way, interviewing someone is like being paid to learn -
it's a free education. It's also an opportunity to talk
with a real, live human being for those of us who work at
home in isolation for long periods of time. So consider
doing interviews one of the perks of being a writer!
