Anyone here from Canada move to LA? Was it hard to find a normal job to supplement your writing career? Paperwork, VISAS, etc...? What was your process?

Thanks.

I also am curious about this if anyone could help.

One can only stay in the States for 90 days as a visitor, correct?

I'm wondering if one goes there, not for a job, but more closer to resources, what would one have to get? I.e. citizenship, visa, workers permit, etc

I lived there for a while and went back to visit twice. It's such a great place to stay motivated and work.

I think Canadians can (somewhat) easily get work there if you're sponsored by a company under "special skills." And you can work in the states.

Not sure how it works when you're making commission ie; sold a script.

Hopefully some canucks will share.
