This morning I read a very funny post over at joshuaink.com, called “When a freelancer says s/he is having a bad week“. It describes what can happen during a freelancers week, without proper discipline. Like John… this has never happened to me, but I can empathize anyway. :)
Of course, there are a couple of things that I can add to John’s “fictional week”. These can be placed on any (or all) of the days…
“After taking a break to catch up on your feeds, you realize there are a couple of topics you must blog about… now. It will only take a minute, and then you’ll get back to work.”
“While breaking for lunch, you realize Deep Space 9 is on. You’ve seen this one many times, but it’s a really good episode. It’s only on for 20 more minutes, and then you’ll go back to work.”
Anyway, check out John’s post, especially if you’re a freelancer. I think you’ll relate. John’s comments are closed for that post, se feel free to comment here.
