Change of venue

It's a lot different working in my new place. I'm using a laptop and I have to get used to the keyboard differences. It's good though. I don't loose labels on my N, M, and C keys after the first week like I did with all the desktop keyboards I've gone through in the past year or so. This helps keep me on track with my writing.

And speaking of writing, I spent the majority of last night applying for new jobs. I really wish I had more examples to show potential clients, but I'm wrapped up in so many nondisclosure agreements that all the best work I have done is all hush-hush. I'm really looking forward to the day that I'll get paid good money AND get a byline. I did get credit once, but it was for a website that has long since bit the dust.

I also started working on the first two poems for Personas. Both of them needed major work and made me wish I had a personal poetry editor to call up in the middle of the night. I want to invest in professional editing for this project, but I know at this point I cannot afford it. Instead, I will have to trust my own judgment and not get upset when I get the first "you really suck" comment. It's bound to happen, but I'm looking toward the future. The "you suck" people usually say that because they have nothing better to do!

Okay, back to work. I'm on a deadline today.
