Working and writing

Still trying to nail down a full-time job while I work on freelance assignments. One of my freelance clients, an Illinois magazine, has been an absolute godsend. I can’t count the number of times (including just recently) where a freelance check from that client has allowed me to get rent paid, bills taken care and food put on the table. I think one check even helped me to take care of a desperately-needed car repair.

When it comes to writing, I’ve found these four P’s work well. They’ve appeared in a blog posting of mine before, but they’re worth repeating:

Be persistent when it comes to looking for work
When you have work, these other three P’s are very beneficial:
Be professional
Be polite
Be to the point
