It's that time of year again. Offers for writing jobs, editing jobs and book cover art projects are flying at me from all directions! I love it when I am overloaded with work.
Part of a freelancer's life is dealing with dry spots, but soon there are floods. You have to be prepared for both.
I stay prepared for the floods by staying organized. I keep track of due dates, estimate how long each project will take, and break it down into manageable chunks.
I prepare for the droughts by saving up money when I can and downsizing as much as possible.
How do you handle the ebbs and flow of being a freelance writer?
