Life Update

As anyone reading here knows, my "writing year," so to speak, is coming to an end. It's been a productive year. Since last September, I haven't had a job. Instead, I've been working as a full-time writer. During the past year, I managed to produce a few short stories, a novella, an article or two, and a novel-length manuscript. I'm in the final stages of editing that manuscript, but it is time for me to going back to work.

That doesn't mean I'm not going to keep writing, of course. However, Nomi and I had a plan, and the plan included my going back to work once the writing year was over.

I am delighted to announce that starting next Monday, I'll be an Associate Editor at a science textbook publisher here in the Boston area. I would be lying if I said that I won't miss the flexibility that writing full time brought to my schedule. But, on the other hand, I'm very excited about my new job. It fits my skill set perfectly, and it allows me take my teaching from the retail level to the wholesale level, as I like to put it.

You know, as I was at the "wondering" part of this post, I was thinking that working on (either writing or editing) science textbooks would be an excellent job for you. Then I read what your new job will be. Joys! Congratulations MAB!

Congratulations! I'm very glad that you got the job and that you're excited about it. :-D
I actually did a presentation on this last Readercon, and I'm working on an article about it.

Sadly, I can't make the next Meetup. Brookline is having its first 300th anniversary celebration and I need to attend.
Cool! That sounds like a great job!
Cool! Glad you were able to find something, hope it works out well for you.
Wow, that's quite a switch from classroom teaching! Will you miss it?

Good luck with everything!
I won't miss classroom teaching, as I'm still doing some tutoring for a while.
Is this the same company Connie Hirsch works for? Hatzlacha Rabbah regardless.
