So, I’ve been trying out this whole “independent contractor” thing for almost a year now. My thoughts are that I could get used to the money, but not the responsibility for my own insurance and taxes. My contract is up on the eleventh of February, so it’s time to buckle down on that search for the next thing.
Honestly, I’ll take another contract position if I have to, but I would prefer a regular, full time position. The freedom is nice, but the security is better, in my opinion.
It really is a full time job looking for work. Add it to the day job I’m still working, and hitting the gym (because it’s good for me), and writing and any side editing jobs, and I need a second ME to get it all done. Forget any promo on the books I’ve already published.
So what’s a girl to do? Dress up like Han Solo and go to Disney, of course!
I also have a Princess Leia on Hoth outfit planned. Because I’m a dork. My niece just sent me a picture of her First Order outfit and it is SMASHING. I am really looking forward to a couple of days of child-like fun!
Anyway, I’m back to applying to every Technical Writer/Editor/Content Manager job I can find on the interwebs. Think good thoughts for me, Readers! I’ll have Feb and March rent and bills paid by the time the job is done, but that doesn’t really give me a lot of leeway.
