Good news ....a client's workload has increased significantly so I will have some predictable hours for a while. So she says and she's been known to be a talker. We have a history together. going back 14 years. In fact she hired me as a technical writer when I was 8 months pregnant. She was my boss in a technical publishing department for preclinical research. After about 2 years under her, I changed to running studies, and about a year after that I quit to be a full time mom. We went our separate ways for about a 2 years and she then contacted me to help with a need for some QC work on data tables. Ever since then we've been working on/off with me in a QC capacity as well as assisting with submissions. This new arrangement will be submission mainly....thank God!....because I'm so burnt out on QC. She has a home office about 4 miles away. It will be with flexible hours. We work together for her clients to submit drug reports to the FDA. They are usually drug companies that don't have their own regulatory staff.
