The Freelance Life

April 21, 2009 at 12:32 am (Uncategorized)

After nine and a half hours straight covering a philanthropy conference yesterday, I have RSI in my right hand for the first time in my life. I also have about fifty pages of handwritten notes to wade through, and a report to write. As you all know, the pesky GFC has meant a quiet start to the year here at DoctorDi HQ, so when a job comes along these days, I drop everything and make sure it’s my sole priority until it’s done. In other words, this week is blocked off while I write the report in collaboration with one of my freelance chickadees, D, who very kindly extended this work my way.

Have a great week, my dears, I am missing you already. Rest assured I’ll return with posts aplenty once this report has been given the okay.

    I was wondering where you were – glad to know the answer is: busy freelancing. Hope the conference was interesting!

    Until the work gets done, “Nobody gets in to see the Great Wizard. Not nobody. Not nohow!”

    Thanks, gals. The conference WAS interesting. Philanthropy is taking a hit thanks to the GFC, so it was actually pretty fascinating being in the room with business, government and community leaders hearing what they’re going to do about it. The number of people passionately involved in worthwhile causes is both encouraging and inspiring.

    Grad, I adore the Wizard of Oz (“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!”). And the work is done.
