Freelance Writing Tip: 2/2/2008

Don’t get hurt! If you are a freelance writer in today’s day and age, you spend most of your time typing. What would happen if you broke a wrist, damaged a nerve, or cut a finger in the kitchen? The fact of the matter is that my freelance writing career would be pretty much non-existent if I could not type at a high rate of speed.

Last week, I began to experience some extreme pain in my left wrist. This always seems to happen when I ramp up my production, and work longer hours. Although it goes away after a couple hours of rest, it is still worrisome nonetheless. Is this pain going to become worse as I get older? I have no idea of knowing, but it is definitely something that I worry about.

All in all, make sure that you are keeping your hands, wrists, and arms safe. If you get injured and cannot type, you will have one heck of a time turning out a lot of work. Can you imagine trying to work with only one hand? This is nothing that I want to try anytime in the near future.

This may sound like a silly tip, but it is very important to say the least. Many people who type all day everyday begin to suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This is not joke, and is a quick way to set your career back. Do not let this injury or any other jeopardize your freelance writing career.
