Whopper of a web site

Sometimes I get frustrated when I search for markets; it's like sitting at the lake fishing all day and not even getting a bite. I'm too impatient to fish, (plus I'd feel guilty if I actually HOOKED one), but I know people who sit there for hours with no instant (or any) gratification. I couldn't do it, especially if I didn't even get a nibble, or if I just kept hooking the same little squirt over and over. It's like that when I search markets; I keep coming up with the same sites. UGH!

This morning I hooked the trophy "fish". I discovered, She Writes. This is a freelancer's site and they generously share their secrets of how to hook the big ones. Five pages worth of publishing info. Put on your sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat and go fishing. Or slather on moisturizer, sit in your jammies and troll. Have fun.

Hi Linda. Thanks for the fabulous info! Can't wait to get there and try it out. I know what you mean about searching for writing sites. It can be very time consuming and a huge waste of time!

Thanks so much, Linda. Have you had any luck selling your writing online? That's new for me. I've always submitted hard print stories. New world and I'd like to learn more about online writing. Please help inform me. Thanks. Susan

Hi Linda. I didn't spend a whole lot of time there, but I guess I misunderstood. I thought it was a site to find "Calls for Submissions", etc. Let me know if I missed it somehow!

Thanks for the information Linda. I'm going to go fishing right now.
