No, I realized early in this contract that I had made a terrible
mistake, and I've been trying to figure out how to get another job but
I live in the boonies, and I don't see much of a market for tech
writers near Baltimore. I'm hoping my move this summer will help.

I don't hear back from recruiters, and since I won't work in DC, that
cuts out a lot of jobs. As a recently widowed mom, I think I'm stuck.
Good luck to you. --Eva Whitley
