Okay, I’ve had a number of questions about this. So let me address it once and for all here on the site.
A week ago Monday I resigned my post as Washington Editor of the American Prospect. So now (or at least as of March 30th) I am officially a freelance writer.
What, you may ask, is a freelance writer?
Well it’s something between being an independent, top-of-your-game, call-your-own-shots writer who answers to no one and being unemployed. All depends on how many assignments you manage to get. I’m planning on the former option but we’ll see how it goes. For me it was a big step, but I think the right one.
And why did you quit your job exactly? Well, long story. But we can get to that later.
P.S. So are you psyched or bummed? Very psyched.
P.P.S. Enough personal revelation. Now back to the Talking Points persona!
