Job Searching

I’ve been spending all of my free time looking for freelance writing jobs, and I gotta say, it’s not going great. I just don’t know what to say! I can write, and I think differently than “normal” people, which can be an asset, but when it’s put in front of me, I draw a blank. And it’s a chaotic blank, not a blank-blank; my head isn’t empty, it’s overflowing with thoughts jumping from one thing to another to another to another. Then I have my regular job that I need to do since I know I’ll get paid for it.

My husband is used to my thinking process. I will sit at work and think about the most random things, then I’ll go ask him a question about those things as if he heard what I was thinking and can answer me. He’s usually confused (okay, always confused), but he recovers well and has me to tell him what I am talking or thinking about. I couldn’t remember what liquid nitrogen was called a couple days ago and asked him what it was, and after he told me, he asked me if I was going to use it to freeze him. I am not.


Hi! My name is Amanda, and I’d like to welcome you to my blog.

I have no idea what I’m doing, so bear with me. I am new to WordPress and the whole freelance writer thing, but I’ve been a transcriptionist since 2006, so I know a thing or two about a thing or two :-). I honestly don’t know where this will show up after I click on “Update.” There’s nothing like adventure! I love to read and write and am following my dream of becoming a freelance writer so I can do what I love.

To answer the WordPress questions, I’ve never been good at keeping journals. I’ve always wanted to, and I get inspired every time I see really cool ones (like Sebastian’s journal in Cruel Intentions), but I don’t have the attention span for it. I have a few notebooks with entries somewhere and I’m sure none of them makes sense, but I digress. My main reason is because I’m trying to break into freelance writing and it was suggested that I have a WordPress page, so here we are. Well, here I am.

I love animals and reading and writing and typing. Those might be things I talk about. I have four cats (kiddies) and a husband. My youngest cat is blind, and he’s the baby and is spoiled. I have a tuxedo girl who looks like a linebacker and doesn’t get along with the three boys she lives with. I don’t blame her.

Everyone is welcome to my blog, so that’s who I would like to connect with! I’m an autistic recluse and communication is pretty difficult for me, but I do all right online. I love talking to people online and posting my thoughts and questions and goings on.
