Another Maternity Leave?

I'm unemployed again, which means I've been back to job hunting since December. Today I got a call letting me know that the people I was temping with at the beginning of the summer are looking for someone to cover a maternity leave. So I may soon be back to temporary work again. At least, I like the people I'd be working with.

But I'm ready to have a permanent job again, so I can do things like plan my time and budget my money.

I spent part of the day sending out resumes, part making phone calls, part polishing the three Torn World stories I got from this month's Muse Fusion, and getting two submitted to the Canon Board, part updating my spreadsheet of which stories I have out to editors and sending queries, and part doing chores. (Well, I sent one query, but English grammar wants items in lists to stick to parallel construction, which means it sounds weird to have a list of things that are plural and then stick in something that's singular).

I had planned to go to the bank and the post office and do other chores, until I realized it was MLK Day. Besides, it was snowing today, and slippery out, so I didn't even do the other errands. The first graders reading his speech that they showed on TV were cute and inspirational, however.

I also spent part of the day talking - well, e-mailing - both Capricon and Duckon about panels this week. I love doing panels--you get to talk to all sorts of interesting people that way.

I'll be doing a Rapid Fire Reading with another member of Broad Universe and two guest authors at Capricon, and I need to decide what to read. Any suggestions?

If you'd rather talk about panels--what panels would you like to see at conventions near me? Or anywhere, really, though I'm more likely to turn a panel idea into a real panel at a convention I can afford to attend. But I have friends who are involved in cons I can't get to, so maybe someone else will make your dream panel a reality.

I hope you are able to get a permanent job. It's nice to know you've got a possibility in the temp one, at least it's something, but not as good as being permanent. Best wishes for you.

Thank you! It's good, as always to hear from you.

And I got your card! It's always wonderful to get something cheering, instead of just bills in the mail.
