What Money Honey?


Yes! One of the reasons I couldn’t weigh in on this blog as much as I would have liked has everything to do with the money issue—I’m overworked, understaffed, underpaid and so damn relieved to not be freelancing…there you have it--I’ve settled for less. The freelance budget I have been given to work with is an embarrassment, yet there are great writers who will step up and do the job. And they deserve more. We deserve more. Insult to injury are the contracts that we are all required to collect from freelancers (not to mention the contract I was expected to sign that does not allow me to write elsewhere … so I guess they own these here words. Hello!) NAJP has always been a refuge from the reality of our profession's deterioration. So, what do we do?
