Sometimes I wonder if I’m busier as a freelance writer. Balancing several clients and maintaining this blog is only a small portion of what I do during day as I also have a family. With a 9 to 5 job, I left work, came home and that was it. Now the work is always here. Even if I have no client projects there are blog posts and pages for my books to write and other ideas to put into action. Really, there’s nothing I would rather do. I don’t want to retire or cut down my workload, because I enjoy my job so much. However, I’m much busier as a freelance writer than when I worked an office job. Again, it’s not a complaint. This is my choice and I’m happy to be exactly where I am today.
Sometimes I think it’s not easy for someone who doesn’t blog or write to get that my job is always here, and there are always things to do. It’s also hard for some people to understand that though this is how I relax, it’s also what I enjoy doing the most. Other writers might look to get away from their laptops, I anticipate logging on each day. For me it will be a sad day when I don’t have any work. Not because there will be no money, but aside from spending time with my family, this is my favorite thing to do.
Do you find you’re busier as a freelance writer than if you worked at a different job?
