Dear Web Writer,
How do you know if you’re getting it right? The writer’s life, that is?
I say that because lately I’ve been up to my ears in projects. I pared down my client load at the beginning of the year, only to have it balloon out even bigger just four months later.
When I’m not taking care of my kids or having dedicated family time, I live and breathe copy. I think about it when I go to bed … I read about writing techniques in my spare time … and I wake up with Big Ideas in my head.
Not that any of this is bad … and if you’re new to web-writing, it’s a good indication of the kind of demand on your services you’ll enjoy after a few years of putting yourself out there.
But the thing is, I chose this lifestyle so I’d have lots of free time to relax and do as I pleased. So what gives?
I’ve come up with two possible explanations:
1) I’ve simply lost touch with some of the perks of this lifestyle
2) I’m actually fully embracing the perks of this lifestyle
Confused? Let me explain.
