I don't know if this is a fallout from the economic insanity going on around us, but I just found out a long-term, well-paying freelance project of mine is most likely ending. No, this isn't a disastrous blow financially (like, say, losing my job would be), but it does mean some rejiggering of our budget and a leaner Christmas than planned. And it's a scary reminder of all that is not right in the world.
So, I'm networking to try to make up that lost income.
On a happier note, I'm about to add a new link to my left hand column, where publishing contests and calls for submissions are posted. Check it out!
