Instead of continuing to ply hardcopy magazines for freelance assignments, I think I will try to find part-time work with companies that need writing done. Although I enjoy writing for publications, I did not achieve much success last year in interesting publishers. I learned many new skills throughout the year, particularly with video, but I did not get the response to my writing that I wanted. I am now pursuing leads on Craigslist, California’s Employment Development Department, and job postings at different private and public job boards. All for part-time work. It would be ideal to find a telecommuting position but I am located only a short drive from the San Francisco Bay area; it is possible I could drive to an office until I get established. I think the key is to do something different and to remain positive.
