It’s Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada! Hurrah! This week has really gotten away from me, but such is life when you’re fortunate enough to be a very busy freelance writer with a hearty workload. No complaints except that my workload makes it difficult to post my list of writing jobs for you.
I’ve had readers suggest that I add a donation option to help keep the list going. I am considering it, though asking for money does make me feel icky. It certainly would help fund the 3+ hours – and coffee needed to get up at around 4 am—that publishing a timely job list requires. I might put up a donation button – at least till my eBook is ready to sell (for a very small fee) to help fund this site. Feel free to let me know your thoughts.
Today’s list is a meaty one and includes online writing jobs open to writers anywhere in the world, as well as some great onsite Canadian writing jobs for other writers freezing their fingers off in this chilly nation of ours.
Happy weekend to all and a very happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian writers!
