Little Victory

I will have a verse published on It will be under a pen name, but those close to me, or who know a certain specific characteristic about me will be able to discern which it is.

Fellow writers: I highly recommend CommonTies- they are professional, the rights are standard and they pay quickly.

Update: Monday the 3rd looks a little busy- regular clients may not be able to reach me by phone most of the day.

Time Out

Between snow days, sicknesses, and my recent trip, my work has been falling down around my ears. I am taking a brief time out to realign GardenWall's priorities and finish up what I can.
This means I will not be seeking new contracts for a bit, or taking on anything new.

Thanks for understanding, and if you need a referral- I've got a bunch!

Stuck in NYC~!

My trip to NYC was productive and snag-free until I tried to come back home. Detroit got tons of snow (NYC was at 60 degrees!) and Detroit Metro Airport shut down for a while.

Today's Friday. I am home and furiously trying to catch up. I won't be trolling for new accounts/clients/jobs until mid next week, at the earliest. I cannot believe how behind I am now.

But, I did love the Big Apple. Returning there soon!

What Is Success?

In the last month or so, I feel that GardenWall has done very well. Here are some benchmarks that I am particularly proud of:

1) Reaching income goals
2) Paid travel to NYC
3) Being paid to read Shakespeare! (curriculum edits)
4) Writing for a well known site (the NY Times'


Additional things I'd like to see:
1) More print articles
2) Less hours!

Thanks You January Clients!

Checking in on GardenWall's monthly goals, I was within $500 of my income goal. Thank you!

I also made a good amount of headway on other goals that I set for 2008.
