Job(s) Search

For a while, after being laid off, I would look for a real job.  It sounds like a contradiction:  freelance writer looking for a “real” job in an office.

Thing is, I’ve had an office job most of my life, and I have always written and published on the side; painted and hung gallery shows on the side; and taken and sold photography on the side.

It’s always worked for me, and as there are always creative outlets in most of the companies I’ve worked for, I’ve always enjoyed it.  I’ve written sales letters, brochures, newsletters, annual reports, PowerPoint presentations, and press releases for print and electronic media within the scope of my many jobs.

I liked the structure of dashing off to the office and putting in a full day, then dashing home to my studio/office to work on my latest project while dinner warmed.

The transition to 100% freelance has been a bumpy ride.  For a long time, I missed the office hustle, the deadlines, the daily interaction with co-workers.

When I was first laid off, I wrote a little less, and painted a little less – the urgency of squeezing in my creative endeavors around that daily grind was gone.  It took awhile to hit my stride, but I need/want more to do.

I’m open to both.  I take freelance work, and I’ve taken some temporary office assignments and the odd client, that wants me in-house and under thumb.

My bottom line is The bottom line, so if anyone out there is in need of or knows of anyone in need of an excellent freelance writer and/or an executive assistant, with considerable credentials and a creative bent, I’m here, ready, willing and able.
