I really think I would be happier in something that had shorter deadlines. A monthly fiction magazine might be ideal. I like having results that I can see. I may or may not be at this company long enough to actually see a book finished that I've worked on, since they take so long to do.
Even if I can't find a fiction magazine to work for, I think I could be happy doing editorial work for some sort of monthly or weekly thing. Maybe I should just start sending out resumes, contacting people, even though I don't have a journalism background. I just wish I felt more secure in my financial situation, because I'm almost certainly not going to be able to find a job in that field that starts out paying as much as my current job pays. Blargh. I need to win the lottery. No. what I really need to do is learn how to be fulfilled without winning the lottery. Then, when I do win the lottery, I won't need to money and I can just give it away.
