Being a full time freelance writer is more than simply living a life of luxury-in fact sometimes it kicks you when you are down-again and again.
The best way to work through the slow times is to:
- Have office hours and keep them!
- Pay attention to your energy level and your mood all day long
- Don’t take on just any project
- Consider when it’s time to delegate your responsibilities
Freelance writing is writing still, and there is a ton of competition out there. What irritates me are those low paying jobs out there.
I recently had a client contact me via Guru.com, they wanted me to create a Press Release for them of (Get this) 1000 words, with bullets and more. THATS A LONG RELEASE.
Then they wanted to pay only $25 for it and have the most ridiculous standards.
Don’t do it!!
What about you-what is your leanest month and what do you do to stay sane?
