Good morning, Freelance Writing Jobs community. School is canceled for today and possibly tomorrow, thanks to the impending blizzard, so I’m working ahead on Tuesday night. Another reminder of how it’s good to have a backup plan in place for every situation. That isn’t to say I can’t work when my son is at home, just that it’s harder to get as much done. Besides, I may want to go outside and do some sledding or have a snowball fight. Wherever you are I hope you’re warm and dry. Check in and tell us what’s going on in your neck [Read more…]

I had a cable outage for much of yesterday. I don’t think I need to tell you how much that puts a damper on things.

I’m a creature of habit. I rely on my routine as it helps me to stay focused. I start work at the same time every day and generally work until family time begins. Holidays throw me off.

I like the freedom of being able to choose working the same hours each day. Your Daily Lists Enjoy your daily lists.

I heard on the news today New Jersey is experiecing our coldest snap since 1985. Now, I don’t know if this is true or not, but I can tell you it’s very cold.
