The answer: Of course! Times are tough and people need money. Few people totally rely on one source of income. Personally, I have a couple of permalance gigs, but I still teach writing and literature classes as an adjunct instructor. I think I'm only going to be teaching one class in fall, so I'm hoping to finish writing my book.
I've been noticing a few gigs on Craigslist about a part-time communications specialist or PR work. If my schedule was less irregular, I think I'd apply. I figure right now with our economy in the toilet, it's also a great opportunity to try something new.
I also figure all kinds of experience helps a creative mind. When you write your book, the more jobs you have, the more interesting your life!
