New job

I'm now a freelance copy writer for Sedona SEO & Web Design by Charlotte Howard, thanks to a contact from Jennifer Reddington.

I met with Charlotte Howard last Friday and I think we'll work beautifully together. She offers some great Websites and with my journalism and media skills I stand to make her a lot of money writing copy professionally.

I'm glad I was in journalism for so long, but my career is poet, my job was just with a newspaper. Without too much ego, my skills are too good for the pay scale of a newspaper reporter and editor. We get paid far too little for what we produce and I'm simply too good to waste my skills on editing fluff to fill a newspaper.

I will miss writing stories on artists, but I can still do that on the side for the sheer fun of it. Both Kudos and The Scene's coverage of the art scene has dropped off considerably and the city is hurting.
