I love the Freelance Union. I love what they do, and I particularly love the idea of the Quiet Revolution. This is how I think we should all live our lives.
Today’s twitter question, which was crafted just to start conversation, deserves a little more commentary than my twitter feed would possibly allow.
“How do you start your freelance project on a positive note?”
I don’t. I go to this blog and bitch and moan. I complain about the fact that my equations are green (why?) and that my author can’t stop using the word “unique.” I whine that I have to edit instead of taking my dog on long walks in the fleeting spring weather. I complain that I’m too lazy to cook for myself even though I work no more than 15 feet from a working kitchen.
But then, I go back to my work, rejuvenated and refreshed. It’s very cathartic. I guess that’s a positive note, right?
What about you? Are you all sunshine and light?
