Wanted: New Writing Gig

want writing jobLet me explain. I wouldn’t want a NEW gig if my OLD gig hadn’t melted away like the Republican hopes in the last election. I loved writing for Write Anything. The eclecticism of the group, the mind-stretching themes, the support from everyone for whatever I turned out.

I want that again. Since Write Anything is retiring, I’d like to find it somewhere else.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not looking to write just any column. I contribute to many groups–TeachHUB, Innovate My School, Amazon as a Vine Voice, Technology In Education. I write books and ebooks and booklets. In fact, I have more writing than I can keep up with while keeping my day job (more on that later). What I do want is to be part of a writer community that blogs for the benefit of authors. Exactly what Write Anything does–did. Used to do. I want that motivation, connection to the world of novels, inspiration to think outside the box.

If you know of such a group, email me at

Now it’s time to go. I’d say, I’ll be back, but that’s been used before, so I’ll just walk off into the digital sunset. As they said in Seattle so many years ago, last one to leave, please turn the lights out.

    • Yes. I liked that they made me think about topics I normally wouldn’t–or didn’t want to. There’s a replacement called Today’s Author with some of the same writers. I hope it does well!
