Now I've only had two bookings, but one of those was my highest paying booking ever. So that's cool.
Work-work-wise, November to January were pretty bad, but things started picking up. So far this recession hasn't been nearly as bad as the last one -- at least for me anyway. That one hit hard and long.
There aren't many new jobs out there at all, but there seem to be decent freelance opportunities. No more or less than usual. (People always seem to think that layoffs mean more opportunities for freelancers. But the hitch is, layoffs also mean a lot more freelancers out there competing for those jobs. So it's kind of a zero net thing.)
Anyway, so far so ... decent. Keeping the fingers crossed.
