    I'm looking at a possible gig doing audiobooks for a guy in New Zealand who's looking to open a catalog of public domain material. Could be cool....

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Hello, despite this thread being 44 pages long I'll try and add my voice here, reasoning that better late than never.

    I'm David - I'm a student. I study creative writing, I'm about to begin my Masters degree after graduating with a BA in English Literature. Before I graduate I'd like to become a successful writer, but I'll probably end up in either journalism or advertising. I think I'd be a dandy advertiser since I'm good at breaking things down, analysis and, (like Luke) a bit of a shit. To read my portfolio please visit here:
    My silly little blog can be found here:
    However upon reading about some of your really varied and interesting lives, I'm not that exciting compared to a fair few of you swinging cats.

    N.B. Oh, I write for my University newspaper, but it's unpaid. It's kind of a job though - we have deadlines and assignments and office politics. Oh the scandal, oh the backstabbings! :P For legal reasons that was a joke.

    Last month I took photographs for hire of places and people for business profiles on a product website. This month I'll be photographing people a corporate event.

    Does that mean I can say i'm a working photographer?

    Does that mean that since I've made no profit on the artistic side of things that I can't say that i'm an artist?

    I got fired today!

    What's more: I got fired from a non-paying, volunteer job...

    ...I didn't even realize it was possible to be fired from a volunteer job!

    Um, only just joined... But... I'm a stripper at the moment, a lead stripper that is, I take the copper wiring out of old lead phone cables so it can be recycled. I used to be crew on music festivals, but went off travelling for six months and came back to the crunch...

    Another student here. Currently studying Media production.
    Recently got to do this in about two weeks:

    There's a few fuck ups, but we didn't have the time to correct them. It was actually a montage assignment that people got creative with.
    Other than that I've studied English, Movies, Intellectual History, Psychology, and now MP. Soon to be an unemployed academic I imagine.

    I write web software. From home, in my pajamas. And organize technology events, but I don't get paid for that part.

    I am unemployed as of this moment, which is actually good. It's allowed me to write a lot. I would like to make funny books for a living, but as I have no artistic talent, artistic friends or contacts, I'm a little screwed. I'm currently submitting short stories to the likes of Weird Tales and 2000ad. I've nearly completed a novel which I must now have proofread and edited.

    Soon, end of the month hopefully, my girlfriend and I will be opening a restaurant with her family. I'm actually really excited about this.

    I teach English to children in Japan. As far as jobs go, it's not too bad.

    I've been a freelance writer since 1990-91. I entered into the wonderful world of webcomics and indy self publishing a few years ago with my partner artist Monique MacNaughton. Our first effort together was the 50's style, monsters-run-amok scifi adventure with the Spielberg flair G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien kreatures for which we were nominated for a Glyph Comic Award in 2007 in the "Rising Star" category. We self published a trade of GAAK in 2004 and hope to have a full graphic novel published soon.

    And now we're working hard on our new steampunk murder.mystery/adventure The Continentals which I describe as Sherlock Holmes meets the 60's tv show "The Avnegrs" with a dash of james Bond for flavor. It just started in september. We're going to start testing the publishing waters with it in january before settling in to self pubish again. But ultimately I'm indy minded and hope to start my own label in the future through which I'll self publish our future works.

    So I'm in this comics thing for the long haul. :)

    I just got done with two months on the planning, survey, construction, coordination, tear-down, and clean up crew for the Burning Man festival. Now I'm unemployed and rather shiftless.
