About “Writing Through Career Transition” (aka my blog):
“Writing Through Career Transition” started as a catharsis/rant/resource about my situation at the time: dealing with a (non-writing) job layoff while trying to find that unicorn known as a successful creative writing career. It has since blossomed into a resource for all things writing related–my journey, resources for other writers, and writing Q&A–while still being somewhat of a rant on career and update on unicorn sightings.
