Looking to Sit

Quiet, Responsible Freelance Writer-Editor Seeks House-sitter Gig

I'm working on a book project and have recently relocated to New England. I'd like to find a short or long-term house-sitting job, while I work on some writing projects and search for a permanent living situation. I'm happy to pet and plant sit; cats are preferred, as I have a great fondness for them. I can perform moderate tasks related to upkeep of the property. I am a non-smoker (please consider that statement all inclusive) and a light drinker. Generally the noisiest thing I do is read, which is how I spend the majority of my free time (I do watch some films and TV when I have the opportunity). I have no criminal record and I have no social network here, so I don't expect to have any visitors. I do not have a vehicle, so if the property is not within close proximity to some kind of commercial district (or at least a grocery or convenience store), my lack of a vehicle will have to be accommodated in some way. I'm really a very dependable, reasonable person in need of a situation that will suit both parties.

I am a freelance writer and editor, with modest experience writing for locally focused travel web-sites and the like. I'm writing a non-fiction book about an aspect of popular culture traditions which I hope to publish. I recently relocated to New England from the west coast and am searching for a situation that will allow me some time to look for a permanent or long-term residence and work. I am single and being new to the region, do not have a social network here, so don't generally have visitors. I am a non-smoker, a light drinker, and a non-user of any type of recreational narcotics. I am in generally good health. I have no criminal record. Please note: I don't have a vehicle, so remote locations would have to be considered in light of that fact.
