Does Your Resume Show You At Your Best?

A publisher sent me a book on resume writing the other day. As I was paging through it, I realized something: it's been years since I've sent anyone a resume. During that time, a dozen clients have come and gone, but no one asks for a chronological list of my work history. Which is good, because I don't really have a work history, per se. Instead, people generally read stuff I've written, decide if they like it, and we work together based on that.
