Second one in a row. This shit sucks ass. If anyone has a line on a sweet freelance copy editor gig, put that info down here. If YOU have been the victim of a layoff, feel free to bitch in this thread.

How u get laid off from freelancing?

I didn't get laid off from freelancing, I got laid off from an in-office copy editing gig. I'm looking for a freelance gig to prevent this shit from happening in the future.

maybe you'd still have a Job if you quit drinking all the time and had goals

Oh, actually, I don't drink. It's only hard drugs for me. Now that you mention it, though, I really don't think my various addictions have caused me this loss. I hardly believe my LSD habit caused these companies to close. In fact, I haven't missed a single day of work in over 3 years. I've never received so much as a mean look about my work.

Also, I'm thinking fucking people's moms might actually be a fine job prospect. The hours are decent, the pay is great, but the stench is more than most can handle. I've done enough drugs to outweigh the negatives.

you need to learn another profession besides copyediting
