A Freelance Writer Is...

A freelance writer is...

part thinker.

part idea catcher.

part hustler.

part email/letter sender.

part sit-around-and-wait-er

part negotiator.

part whore.

part researcher.

part fact checker.

part interviewer.

part muller.

part bill collector.

And, if we're very, very lucky, part serious writer.

If you have enough of them out at one time, I guess it could get your mind off of thinking about each one.

I should try it again. A while back, I did human interest articles for the Daily Herald, but it didn't pay much. I should look into doing magazine articles. I hear they pay very well.

Thank you, I really needed that today to be reminded that all the "not writing" stuff I do really is part of my job!

LOL, that is the most honest look at the life of a freelance writer I've ever seen.

Thanks Mike. :)
