Writing Job

As my youngest is attending nursery, I have some free time during the week. As you know, I tend to drive up to Starbucks and sit and write there (I am there right now!), but I have been thinking.

If the right job came up, I would probably return to work.  Is it too much to ask for a job that:

  • I could work on a Monday and Tuesday only?
  • Starts at 9:30am and finishes at 3pm?
  • Is a writing job? As in, do any local businesses or universities need a writer/ideas person?

Those would be the 3 critical requirements.  For too long I’ve applied for jobs that I’ve ALWAYS seen as a stop gap, and there’s no way I’m going back that sort of work life.  I want to write for a living.  As I’m trying to get published at the moment, I see myself as self-employed but without the pay! If I could start getting the pay for work in the same field then hurrah!
