Yes! Don't bitch about it, do something about it!

I do mailings and network. I haven't tried to sell people who don't
think they need help - there's too much work for people that know they
need help for me to spend the time. In my mailings, though, I open up
right away with "Too much work for your writing staff? Not enough work
to justify a full-time writer? I can help." This tells people that 1)
I'm not after their jobs and 2) I am a freelancer - I am NOT looking for
full-time employment.

It's worked so far.
