Many people go to work each day with a set number of goals in mind. Likely these goals are set by an employer or a job description of targets that the worker needs to attain before the day or week is out. Failure to meet these targets and adhere to the job description will affect the worker’s standing with his boss and colleagues who rely on him. They get to work on time and they leave work on time and each day the routine begins again. Not so for the freelance writer.
Okay, so the world of a freelance writer is not always a rosy one. Lack of a reliable income is the biggest problem writer’s face. No pension scheme. Too much flexibility in the working week can lead to laziness. Working from home can lead to procrastination. However once you can overcome some of these then there is much to enjoy from being a freelance writer. The following may not be available to everyone, especially those writers juggling a family life with the need to write for a living, but for a few these can be some of the benefits available.
So, if like me, you are at home today wondering why you do what you do then the above may help. Certainly it is not easy being a writer for a living and there are many obstacles to face as mentioned earlier. But at least you can have your lunch early today if you want too. Have a good day!
