Hi, Tim,

Have you had a second to think about the newsletter article we've been talking about? Shall we proceed, postpone, or jettison the project? I'd be delighted to put in something which would/might lure readers into your Web site. I am particularly interested in what you build up to in your site--old-fashioned audience analysis--tried and true approaches.

Please let me know your 'druthers, Tim. Thanks!

We can talk at TT on Friday, but in general, the deadline I am working under is self-imposed. If possible, I would like to take it to the printer's in Superior in two weeks. Then it takes another two weeks of back and forth to get it published. I was shooting for early March distribution. But, sometimes the best laid plans "gang aft agley!"

I saved the e-mail I sent you earlier with what I thought would most easily turn your Web site into an article. On Friday, I will bring a copy along and we can spend a couple of minutes seeing if taking that direction would work for you.

I'll try to get to a draft today (Sat) or tomorrow.

Thanks for the reminder.

In between snow shovelling I did a draft of the article. Basically I followed your suggestions, with a bit of structural reorganization.

However, I forgot what length you would like. (I have a feeling I'm over the limit already.) I need that information in order to give you a close-to-acceptable draft.

What is there about snow shoveling that brings out the articles in us? I worked on three this weekend as well as my mother's income taxes. Guess I was just prepared to be snowbound. We have had so little snow the last few years that I forgot all about the big questions in life such as "where am I going to put all of this?"

Back to the article--I will be so happy to get your article that I will take up to 2000 words. I will juggle and tuck and if need be, add an extra page.

Thanks, Tim.
