When you don't have any.

I have some samples, but the most recent one is approximately 15 years old. Pretty much everywhere since then has had clauses preventing me from showing my work. All the samples I do have are...print.

I am volunteering with OpenOffice, so I can point to that. I am working on some essays and such, so I can point to that.

But over the past 15 years my writing has changed, for the better I hope.

I'm not looking right now. So, I have some time while I get my health back on track (I hope I get my health back), and during that time I am walking down the avenues mentioned.

Other than completely changing my attitude about my former employer...what other actions can people suggest I take?

Thanks, in advance,
