I won’t be Evan “Two Jobs” Nichols much longer...
Job #1 is winding down. The client was not only thrilled with the document I put together, but happy that I had time left over to do release notes for another system. I had been concerned that once the first deliverable was complete, I’d be done, but she’s determined to wring every bit of my writing time from the dollars available.
Job #2 is also almost over. I found out this week that my supervisor and her manager are both pleased with the work I’ve done and would like me to stay on, but they’re not the ones who control the shekels. So Thursday will be my last day here (on this contract. I’ve been in The Business long enough to know that leaving a site at the end of one contract does NOT necessarily mean “never to return again.”) As always, this is a Good News/Bad News event. I would have liked to earn more in this round; I’m not back up to where I was after Alaska. However, Tim already has a client with a need for tech writing, so the situation isn’t as sparse as last January’s dry spell.
I can also spend more time writing! I can finish my screenplay! (I know, we’ll believe it when we see it.) And as I mentioned to sanguinity, I could devote some energy to making money from my writing, which she allowed would be a cool thing, indeed.
