I'm "haunted" by Ghost Writing deadlines, immersed in calls for submissions, researching markets, and other creative projects.
But, don't get me wrong; on most days, I wouldn't trade this way of life for the world.
How about you...?
Still, with all the "warm and fuzzy" feelings it can bring, there are times when it makes me wanna' scream.
I'm guessing...you too? :-)
Like last week, when I was mired down in computer glitches, Blogger mishaps, and my first rejection from a new market I've been dying to break into.
And did I mention all the frantic checking of my emails, for an updated status on some long-labored-over submissions I sent out in great hopes?
If I had to sum it up, these would be my top four frustrations (in no particular order):
1. Computer glitches
2. The "feast or famine" cycle
4. Time spent waiting on responses
Well, that's my story...what's yours?
What is it about freelance writing that frustrates you, freaks you out, or that you just can't seem to get a handle on? And how do you handle it?
Maybe we can help each other here...and save a lot of money on therapy. :-)
