How do you find jobs?

I am just starting out with freelance writing, and am trying to figure out what I'm doing. I would like to start out with one-off types of jobs. I've been looking at a few blogs that list freelance jobs, but all the jobs I'm seeing listed are more of long-term types of jobs. From looking at the Whispers and Warnings forum, I'm seeing that some people there have done one-offs for companies like S2, then moved along, but I certainly don't want to jump to a company that I learned about from Whispers and Warnings.

So, how do you find the jobs? Thanks! Celtx - #1 Choice for Media Pre-Production. The Online Writing Community. Template.

Finishing a novel (or any kind of writing project) is a transformational experience. A long time ago, something funny happened to me. I thought I was a writer. And then my house burned down. So I made some notes on the book I remembered best, flew to Thailand, and wrote the whole thing in seven weeks. This area of the site is based on what I've learned since then.
