Freelance Work

Posted on 2006.08.16 at 15:48
I've almost finished the freelance work that has consumed gallons of my time for the last three weeks. I've had an awesome time doing the research and writing, but it is a relief to see the end in sight. Here are a few things I learned while working on this project--

***The cure for self-doubt is to just keep plugging away.

***When your nose is stuck three-inches deep into a research book, the phone is guaranteed to ring at least once.

***I'm WAY more spoiled than I realized. Most people work 8 to 5 EVERY day.

***It is possible for me to write 2000+ words per day. Darn, I should have gotten one of those nifty counters.

***Three weeks is a really short period of time to research a topic and write 18,000+ words.

***I'm only truly happy when I'm writing and I'd do it again in a minute. :-)

Wow--some good lessons learned there, girl.

And some $$ earned.

Sounds like a good deal all around. :)
