Here are some ideas for November features. Some of them may be in your diary already. Some of them may be added to your diary after reading this. Some features may be written by in-house journalists. But maybe, just maybe, I can write something for you.

Let me know what you want, word count, deadline and fee and I will get to work. (A summary of my published work appears below.)

Here's the November list and, if I can help, I look forward to hearing from you.
