Freelance Writers Appreciation Week: February 10-16 — Jinski over at the About Freelance Writing forums reminded me that it’s Freelance Writers Appreciate Week this week! In honor of this observance, let’s talk about what we appreciate about the freelance writing life. I’ll go first.

I appreciate the ability to work from home and be here for my dogs during the day. If I weren’t a freelancer, I wouldn’t even have a dog! But now I’ve got three, and they are the joy of my life.

What do you appreciate about being a freelancer? Leave a comment!

    Thanks for letting us know about Freelance Writers Appreciation Week.

    Among the many things I appreciate about the freelance writing life are being able to work from home on my own schedule and getting paid for doing something I love.

    I’m just happy to have a measure of control over what I love to do. Freelancing provides that for me.

    I didn’t realize it was writer appreciation week! Yay :) How should we celebrate?

    I appreciate having control over my time so that I can live a more relaxing and fun life than someone who is chained to the 9-5.

  • I almost missed the holiday! Like most of the other commenters, I value the freelance lifestyle. It’s wonderful to do what you love on your own time and get well-paid for it.

    I also enjoy the freedom to research and explore topics of deep interest to me, and the ability to use new bits of esoteric knowledge to add interest to my writing. Could there be a better way to earn a living? I doubt it!
