Some days I have to pinch myself to believe that this is my job now. I’m a freelance writer. I love my job!
And it’s not that it isn’t stressful, or tiring; sometimes it is mind numbingly boring. Some days I struggle to come up with ideas for articles and other days the words flow like magic – hours of work is completed in minutes and then I’m done for the day! The hours are usually long, and sometimes I get a bit lonely – which forces me to make more of an effort with my social life- but all in all, I love it!
I love being tired and opting to work in my PJ’s for the morning, skipping breakfast and taking a brunch break once I’ve tackled the most important work, I love working late so that I can treat myself to a lie in in the morning, or finishing early to meet my boyfriend for dinner. I love that I can give myself a couple of days off to go to Paris, take my netbook with me and work from there, if the mood takes me!
And so sometimes I might have to write about air conditioning, or industrial computer monitor repair…there are the boring bits, like in any job! Other days I might be writing about interior design and shoes 🙂
I honestly can’t see myself doing anything else, ever. Sometimes I really do have to pinch myself…..
