I often tell people that being a freelancer means always looking for a job, but never actually holding one. You snag one assignment, meet the deadline, collect the paycheck and, if you are smart, sometime during the process start hunting the next gig.
I typically have too many projects at once, or am in such a lull that a job at the local video store starts to look good. Luckily, the next project always comes along, nobody starves and the bills all get paid.
Currently, I’m in feast mode. I have a book deadline, revisions due on my regular monthly gig, and the constant hunt for the next gig.
I have not forgotten you, my pretties. I’m just in the middle of a juggling act.
