One for the freelance writers ....

You must be mad to want to write freelance as a career ... the work is hard and long and often boring ... less glamour than movies and TV would have you think. Yet somehow, mothlike, many of us return to the screen to face another day of writing, researching and running workshops.

Payment for doing what you love (or for writing something you loathed but the paying client wanted) is a common concern . I had to share this quote with fellow freelancers ... The writer Robert Benchley once said:

“The freelance writer is a man who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps”.
