Read an Excerpt

The classic sci-fi spoof movie, “The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra,” was on TV last Sunday.

In the movie, an alien tries to fit in with human society by trading in his space suit for a jacket and tie.

“This neck-restraining device is uncomfortable,” he says, tugging at the tie. “I wonder what its purpose is?”

I mention this because it was my having to wear a tie to work every day that was one of the primary reasons I decided to quit my job and become a freelance writer in February 1982.
I think most people who take the leap from corporate employment to self employment do so for the advantages: they want to make more money, have more fun, or do more creative work.
