This fun little image/ quote popped up on my Facebook wall today.
It’s true that freelance writing comes with a lot of lag time between projects (especially when starting out), clients that can be difficult to work with, and hours of dedicating your talents to something that, in the end, you don’t even get credit for.
But, for some reason, we keep doing it. We keep working as freelance writers. Maybe it’s because we need the money, maybe it’s because we don’t have any other option.
Or, maybe, it’s simply because, at the end of the day, writing is our passion. We love it. Yes, it can be torture at times. But, we live for that. We live for the creative process–even if it’s creating something we don’t even like.
Or… maybe we’re all just a little crazy and slightly masochist. Who’s to say, really?
