Good news my job continues!

As most of my friends know I was hired to write a policy and procedure manual for a local doctor. I have submitted the manual and was afraid that I wrote myself out of a job. I was given three other projects which I have finished and faced the end of my job once again. I now have a new job. I will be writing a monthly news letter for the doctor to mail out to his patients. I cannot believe I am doing so much of this writing. I have not done so much professional writing before. I never thought of myself a good writer before. I now am writing in areas that I know. I am so glad that I will continue my job for the time being because my hubby may be changing his job. We might really be needing the money if his pay goes down. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work from home and go into the office only one day a week for four hours. This way I can still rest when I need to and work when I can. I do not know where to start or even how to write a news letter. Does anyone know? Can someone guide me where to start? Have anyone of you written a news letter? Thanks for listening

I will be doing some research on news letters on the internet to see what I can find out. I think I will be adding jokes and what not.

Good for you I am not a writer too. I am not that good at writing too. I envy your work schedule once every week for 4 hours only and you can do that from home. How much do you receive from doing that.

I get an hourly wage. The doctor and I have known each other since he has been come to town 16 years ago. He is so good with this patients I admire his work and dedication. He knows me as a nurse and my dedication and work ethics. I then became the supervisor of the sleep lab he is the medical director for. I no longer can work full time because of an chronic illness. We have lots of years of working together so he trusts me with my time. I get so much per hour and he gets the results. I started going in one day a week so he can see what I am doing and so I can get any info I need. I am disabled so working 45 hours a month works for me. I can work and rest and keep up all my other obligations.

I commend you for your commitment to continue working despite the situation you're in. For most who have a chronic disease they would easily give up. But, in your case you even strive your best to earn and be yourself.

Why do you have to wait on your job? Is there something you can do to keep you occupied while you wait on your job? Good luck on your job. I know with this job market getting a new job is something to think hard about because of all the lay offs and they tend to lay off the lowest man on the totem pole.

I have to wait for my boss to give me instructions... or a thing for me to do... i am not in the position to make any suggestions... because the last time i did that... it cost me half my salary (long story)... so i am being wise by just waiting... but yesterday... i got a call from her secretary that i would be going to the city every week... and i am quite excited because i will be busy working again...

I am really so happy for you! Sometimes we never know what to expect, and when it comes to us when we don't expect it, makes it even better!!

Thank you. Now I am daughting myself if I can do the job. I submitted the brochure that I wrote and a friend told me it needed a lot of work. I did not know how much I did not know in writing a brochure. I do not want to put out substandard information. I have been doing some soul searching the last couple of days.

Thanks, the doctor has not had time to go over any of the work I have done so far. When he does that I will then do any tweaking then send in the application for the accreditation which is what I was originally hired for. Then I also have a job. yoohoo
