Tuesday, December 1, 2009 Freelance & Full-Time Writing Jobs

The busiest month of the year just started. I know that the rest of Canada is awash in snow, but here in Southern Ontario we have yet to see a flake (excepting Conrad Black’s wife, but that’s just a given). First time since the 1800’s that we’ve had a snow-free November, and a family member just got back from Australia where the temperatures were hovering around 47 degrees Celsius.

Just a reminder for all of you folks new to the blog; if you are a Canadian writer, you shouldn’t write for Transcontinental Media. Details here. I’ll basically just keep posting this until they change their rights-grabbing master author agreement, which will only happen if we band together and pull a collective /shun.

To the leads! And extra Christmas money!
