Freelance Writing from the Road: The Good and Bad
Chris, where have you been? Over the past week or so I received this message time and time again from my readers â€“ thanks to all of you for checking in. Although I went a couple of weeks without making a new post, I was still working. But instead of working from my home office, I was on the road.
As you may have found out for yourself in the past, there are both pros and cons of being a freelance writer on the road. In my opinion, though, the advantages far outweigh any potential drawbacks.
One of the main benefits of being a freelance writer is that you can work from pretty much anywhere in the world. As long as you have your computer and access to the internet, you are good to go.
Not only did I work from my hotel while out of town, but I was able to respond to email while driving in the car. In fact, I was connected so much that I never missed a beat.
I know what you are thinking: who wants to work while they are vacationing? This is definitely a negative. Since you are able to take your work anywhere you may be tempted to do so. But even though I was working, I found a happy medium that allowed for the best of both worlds. I did not get behind on my work while still being able to enjoy my time away.
There is no denying the job flexibility of a freelance writer. I plan on touching more on this topic in the near future. Do you have any stories from the road? Do you have any tips on how to balance your time?
