Day 67 – A Year of Writing

I was offered a position today, but ultimately I turned it down. Unfortunately the amount of money that they were willing to offer for the position was well under the industry average (by about $24,000 a year) and they did not appear willing to negotiate on the number at all. I can respect this, but also decline taking the position. So for me, the search continues. Though receiving an offer has boosted my confidence in this job hunt.


I am still waiting to hear back from the position in NYC that I interviewed for almost a month ago. I would really enjoy working with them, I hope I hear back soon. Last we spoke they said they were still deliberating between a few candidates. Presumably I was in the pool, otherwise they would have told me then and there that I was not selected.


I really adore my friends. I have another one reading through my most recent revision of my article I hope to get published. I need to get her a drink sometime. Or maybe just send her some Dogecoin, since she’s in the UK.
