|Except I did nothing productive all week.|
I got an email a few days ago from one of my old employers. Technically I suppose they are still my employer because that was the one job I never formally left. They sent me an email telling me to not write anything more from them until they sent me an email saying it was okay to. Then I never heard from them again until a few days ago when they approached me with a different job. As you might recall I was working article writing jobs but had to leave when I became too depressed to continue.
|I was actually referred to as a "Grumpy McGrumperson"|
Anyway, they sent me an email, along with CCing their other two writers, saying they had a job to write 60 articles in two weeks and that they wanted all three of us to do 20 each. 20 articles of 400 words for $3 each. I figured why the hell not and took the job. I also said that I could probably do more if need be and in my head imagined doing all sixty articles. Writing 30 articles a week is what my old job was and that would have been $180 which would have been pretty nice.
Five articles into this job and I'm already aware of the fact I could never write 60 and I'm remembering why I left. But I'm going to stick this through and make a bit of money. It feels good to be totally freelance and to have the freedom to say I don't want to do a job. I don't mind doing jobs and this guy pays more than the last one, but it seems that on a mental level I wouldn't be able to handle continuous employment. I don't know why. Oh well.
