Hi. I saw some posts recently from Andrew, et al, and I know work is
booming in California, but I've been hearing "horror" stories from some
writer friends here in the Midwest (Upper--Minnesota, not Chicago). I've
been hearing that there are no contracts, and every recruitment agency
I've spoken to has many writers on the bench and numerous jobs "on

Currently I'll be looking for a contract in about 2 weeks, but does
anyone know why tech writers in particular are having problems?


I'm an artist, and if that doesn't excuse my many
faults, I don't know what does!
