I'm at the opposite end of my career, and I'm doing it because I don't need or want to work full time anymore but growing tomatoes and planning the layout for my mini-orchard isn't quite enough activity for me yet. And a little spare cash to actually pay for the trees isn't so bad, either.

I'm concentrating on small firms that haven't ever had a writer and may never have enough work to hire one full time. A few years back I did a year at one of those big corps that had fired en masse and replaced with contractors, and I don't ever want to do that again if I can avoid it. Not because it was a bad gig for me, but because it was a real downer working with the remaining direct hire employees and seeing how bad their morale was. Only take a contract like that if you're really hard up or you're the kind of person who enjoys watching starving people in a famine zone trying to survive by eating grass,
