frustrated

You’re probably thinking, “Sure, been there; done that. I didn’t even bother to collect the t-shirt.” There is a point in every writer’s life when he just doesn’t feel like writing.

4 Habits That Give Freelancers a Bad Name

bad freelancer habits

In all the years (almost a decade) I’ve been freelancing, I think I have taken on every possible gig out there – from content writing to product description writing to blogging to magazine writing to ad writing to coordinating/managing other freelancers. I’d like to say I have had my fair share of experience, and lately, I’ve been interacting with some people who hire freelancers. Source Sad to say, it seems that a common thread in the different conversations I have had is that freelancers are not always the best people to work with. Being a freelancer myself, those conversations made [Read more…]

You Are What You Read. What Does Your Bookshelf Contain?

One of my favorite quotes related to writing is from Stephen King (I think many of you know this by now): If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that. That is why, as busy as I am, I try my best to spend even a few minutes every day reading something that I want to read, and not merely something I have to read because of work. In my case, it’s usually fantasy or sci-fi, with the occasional blog/online publication I read for personal pleasure. I don’t think [Read more…]
