On Seven Years as a Freelance Writer, or, How To Make Vitamin Soup

After months of attempting, and failing, to get a job in the glossy magazines -- I have seriously considered becoming a freelance journalist. This article made it appear much more romantic than I ever imagined, and it also made me want to vomit in my mouth. Although I'll still dream of being a lazy, cushioned editor, it's nice knowing what my future life as a writer may look like: success with a side of multiple ulcers. At least now I'm armed with a new soup recipe and a strong gut feeling that I should invest in Pepto-Bismol stocks. Thanks Richard Morgan! -Jenn
