- Continue freelance writing and consulting.
- Pursue university research posts in communications and/or language arts.
- Return to private industry (good pay, benefits).
Freelancing is low-paying, but flexible for my physical and neurological days of rest.
University teaching posts have good hours, decent pay, and I don't have to remain focused on autism research if I can make a case for other research projects. I love teaching and the schedule is ideal for writing projects.
Corporate posts pay well and have better benefits than freelancing. Also, there's little controversy involved versus conducting research. The right company might be a good fit. I don't know.
No matter what happens, I'll be sure to announce where I land. None of the options are bad, but they are each different. Until I have a solid offer, these are only interviews. I'm probably over-thinking the situation right now.
