I think your suggestion is a fine one, Melody. On first glance, however, it
just doesn't fit my particular circumstances. You see, there's a company
here that has since early September needed a pharmaceutical writer with a
chemistry background. I don't qualify for that job. There's another company
that needs an API writer, and I don't qualify for that job, either. That's
about all the jobs here, except for entry-level ones. I'm not kidding. Since
September 7, 2001, when I lost my job along with 34 others, there have been
virtually no technical writing jobs advertised, and not a single job for a
technical editor.
