Now that Doug is 'unemployed' he has to give you some news about what he's working on. On October first Doug will be providing the music for the Brazilian play 'Morte e Vida Severino.' Taking place at the Cape Cod Community College in the studio theatre. This piece is based on a well know Brazilian poem and delineates the difficult life of people in the Nordeste of Brazil. Even has some similarities to Wizard of Oz if you stretch things a bit, Severino , an Everyman , goes in search of better and winds up , well he doesn't find anything better I tell ya. Music by Chico Buarque.

Was Doug a casualty of the recession of 2008 and 2009 or was it something else entirely ? Just click here to find out.

Originally Published by Writer Online in February 2000, I have had three requests for reprints of this piece, one from an on-line course for technical writers in Ontario, Canada and one from the Orange County (California) Society for Technical Communication,who condensed the Tips and published in their November newsletter.

I have found that many writing markets are interested in a list type article.
