I’m really at ends lately.
I can’t believe how much time has elapsed since this nightmare of mine began.
I heard from a potential client. Who is interested in working on something very long term with me.
I have never delved into that part of the art theatre. I’d need an attorney and a contact for her, plus I’d need to run a credit reference check on her.
Its also a whole lot of legal red tape.
I have no idea wht I would charge for this type of work. I did some research on the web and I found several “going rate” prices on a price list. And there are things on that list that I never heard of. I can’t submit that kind of a price list; I don’t want to be held at bay for something that could be a lot of legal trouble.
This person is asking for more samples of my work. She will have to be charged; time is money and art isn’t cheap.
Second up: I more or less am going back into the job search market. I dread the thought of it — I worked hard to detach myself from the entire sordid stinking mess (It was getting under my skin in ways I didn’t know were possible) and as I said:
The job ads are fewer and fewer.
I am not happy with what I see. I’m in a bad situation and I need resolution on this soon. Like the rest of us here, I need a miracle.
I cannot and will not say what is happening but I had my mind blown yesterday. Very long story. It’s a big mess and a horrible spot for me to be in.
I worked hard to get away from the mess they call a “job search and job market” and I do not want to go to an “unhappy place.” It’s bad for you, your health, your emotional well being and it can take years off your life.
I dread the thought of putting more resumes out there with regularity, in response to the few ads that there are out there now.
The long term project I mentioned is light years away. She is also asking me to create something that exists…there is a copyright on it and she wants “the same kind of character.” I can’t do that.
I don’t even know what to respond to her. Charge her for the sketches she is asking for but if she wants to get this item into production, man, I am going to need an attorney that specializes in entertainment law.
