How long did it take you to become comfortable with your workload after you became a freelancer? [more inside]

Hey, travel writers - when do you pitch?

Tell me about your childhood....

How do I extract information from people? I'm a self-taught journalist who profiles people in my community. Interviews always go well when we discuss the interviewee's special area of knowledge, but I stall when trying to move beyond that. [more inside]
