Reflection on chapter 7

Lemire (skim Ch 2-7) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

Bethany Merryman’s blog helped me realize both the advantages and disadvantages of freelancing. She talked about the difficulty of working on magazines because they are mostly freelance work and she’d like to have a more stable job. However, she said that she was interested in the different types of fields she could write about in magazines. I know that acting is not the most stable type of job either, because like freelancing, it is living from job to job and creating stability from forming connections with people you’ve worked with previously. I wouldn’t mind this type of “unstable” job as much as Bethany might, and I’m sure I could find some magazines that focus on subjects that I’m interested in and might be able to break into.
