All night long, their nets they threw…

Okay, the quote above is from….
That’s right Wynken, Blynken and Nod but I’m actually not going to talk about fishing for stars or lullabys. Instead I’m casting for jobs. I was really moved by

 ‘s posting on saying no. Up until now I’ve had a loyalist job seekers point of view. Apply for one and only one and see what they say. Well, no more. I’m casting my net farther and wider and seeing what will be. Perhaps I will have to say no because of salary or other unexpected undisclosed information. BUT It will give me a greater chance of saying yes to an opportunity that fits my knowledge and education and experience and challenges me at this stage of my life.

I will not give up my aspirations to become a published author/illustrator. But right now, my family needs another salary, and E will be in first grade next year. It is time to cast that net.
