Strength in Numbers

Ours is one strange career path, don't you think?

Who else on earth does what we do? Selling opinions, ideas, random thoughts, and persuasive arguments. Very, very strange.

Throw in the whole "I'm on a deadline" dynamic, the one that keeps you inside on a sunny day, and awake until wee hours, and it's no wonder nobody you know really 'gets' you!

Having just spent a weekend with some writer friends, laughing about odd writing requests we've received, comparing projects, fees, and resources - it was wonderful being somewhere where everyone knows your name and game.

Just stumbled onto this site for freelancers in Atlanta, GA. If you're in the area, you should check the site (and the group) out. If you're not in that area, maybe give some thought to forming a local group where you are.
