Forced Hiatus from Writing (not blogging) 

I'm moving in a month. That presents a problem in the world of freelance writing. I don't have many places I write for regularly, which means I send out lots of blind query letters, which magazines take months to return. Sometimes. Sometimes they return queries within a week. So I feel like I can't write query letters knowing that I'm changing addresses so soon.

I've resorted to submitting complete works, essays generally, and to submitting to online sites. The turn-around time is better, though the pay is less. Often much less. And I'm lining up queries to send a day or two before I move.

Sigh. Life.
