You Know You’re A Freelance Writer…
…when something interesting happens you say “Wait ’till I blog this!” instead of “Wait until I tell…”
…if beside your bedside table is a well-worn, well-loved copy of the AP style guide.
…if you have ever been warned NOT to write about a family member’s embarrassing medical issue.
…if your window has forehead and nose smudges because of your “mailman with a check watch.”
…when you end conversations with “Can I use you as a source?”
…if your idea of scrapbooking is organizing your clips.
…if you your mother can track your life better through your blog than your phone conversations.
…when the majority of your friends are people you’ve met through Twitter.
…if your mortal fear is a power outage because of no internet connection.
…when you Google yourself not out of narcissism but to find your clip links.
…when all you want for Christmas is a stable blogging platform.
…when your good clothes are pajamas without holes.
…if you have a “They finally paid me” dance.
…if you routinely stand in front of your home in the morning laughing and pointing at all the poor suckers that have to commute to work.
…if you’ve ever heard “You know, you’re home all day so could you…”
