Pretty bad. I had a conversation this morning with a doctor, a librarian, and a school teacher ten years in the system and all had been recently laid off. So I guess I shouldn’t complain if my life plan of getting published and living off the fat of the land hasn’t happen yet. It is a TOUGH economy and the hardest hit segment seems to be publishing—well that and civil servants whose paycheck is tied to state and municipal budgets. So if the tenured and tracked professional is feeling it, then I shouldn’t be surprised.
Now I have to go re-invent myself and upload my manuscript to Amazon for the Kindle.
