No, I'm still employed, but I won't be for long if I don't stop blogging. So this is a rushed post.
I'm feverishly trying to finish the review on PULPWOOD DAYS, but in the meantime, Ive found a few good sites to follow. This one, a western online series called Western X I found via the Tainted Archive via Bobby Nash. (There.You can't say I don't give proper credit!) This looks so fantastic and as soon as I get out from under this tractor-trailer load of work today I'm going to look at this.
A Web site for writers and editors: this one came via my California Writer's Club group. This one is owned by the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors. Their acronym is NAIWE - just think 'naive' but with a W. Which is what some of us are when we think we can make money as writers, right? This might be a good site for those freelancers of you out there. Instead of selling your furniture or your pulp collection in these tough times, maybe this place can help with the job hunting. I don't know if they have a job board, but if anything it sounds like it might be a good place to start. They also had this cool Self-Publishing Checklist on their site.
I also joined this club on Facebook: The Editorial Freelancer's Association. Here's their web site. Don't know nothin' about them except they are savvy enough to get on Facebook.
Personally, I've always gone to Mediabistro.com for jobs in the publishing world. Don't know if any of you know of this one. If any of you have any tips on where to look for work as freelance contract writers or editors, technical or otherwise, why don't you pass them on here in the comments section for those of us who are looking for gigs. I'm sure it would be much appreciated.
