Freelance Work

Besides writing my own book I have been lucky enough to get some freelance work this week too…YAY!

One job was to write some information about pets and another was proofreading and editing pieces related to child development. I loved the variety, hopping from subject to subject keeps all the writing fresh.

I was concerned that by leaving my history book I’d lose the thread a little but actually, it reignited the energy because I came back to it fresh after a few days. I hadn’t even realised that I would benefit from time away from that project. Fab huh?

Hopefully those freelance jobs were the first couple of many, fingers crossed.

Incidentally, the switcharounds triggered the OCDing part of my brain, about facing new things, would the work be good enough for the client? insecurities, can you manage the workload? worries etc. but the worry was thankfully all in my head! – the clients gave me great reviews (thank you!) and I didn’t spontaneously combust.

So, if you’re a writer I’ve learned that you can benefit from taking a break from your beloved project… and if you’re a freelancer pleeeeeeease don’t go for the same jobs as me!!! I need to keep my supply of chocs and sweets up, you know how it is!!!

Have a fab weekend.
