Temp employee techwriter, finishing two month gig.
They aren't hiring any writers at the moment - just need some production
and support documentation done, and brought me in to do it.

At least, there seem to be momentary flurries of opportunity in the job
market.

But my previous gig was a three-week gig, and my next is a two week gig.
<sigh>
