I've shared in the past weeks, that I'm job hunting. For a person who has been mostly self-emplyed for almost 14 years--it's not an easy place to be.
Ideally, I'd love to make enough money writing so I didn't have to hit the pavement and want ads but alas, that's isn't possible.
I went on an interview last week and found myself analyzing the character of the interviewer more than the job. With a social service background, and being who I am, it's important that I connect with the person asking the questions.
It's also important that I apply to a job that fits my skills, personality and experience.
Sometimes I'll browse the Internet and find a new place to submit a story. Even though it might not be me, I'll try to write in a style that is totally foreign just to submit.
It rarely works.
As much as I try to change who I am through my writing, the real me keeps wanting to creep back out.
Much like finding a job that fits my needs and personality, I need to write by who I am.
Maybe you've recently tried writing out of your box--how did it work for you?
