Seven Signs You’re probably a Freelance Writer

7. You know your laptop more intimately than you know your spouse.

6. The idea of working 9-5 puzzles you.

5. Your commute consists of walking into your dining room.

4. You’ve spoken with clients while partially or entirely nude (without them ever knowing.)

3. Vampires see the sun more often than you do.

2. “Schedule C” and “estimated taxes” are two terms with which you’re thoroughly familiar.

1. Every day is “casual Friday”.

Well done on your awards over at Jason's website. Very well deserved. It was sunshine on a cloudy day - lots of the entries were so dark in content. :-) I love this place here as well ... I will be back.

Congratulations, Angelique!

Well, among your seven rules, there's one that especially applies to me: number 6, except that I loathe the idea of working from 9-5 PLUS I loathe the idea of commuting.

How... special. (Love Dana Carvey. Love the man.)

In all seriousness, I have been "blurking" on your site for a few days. I'll definitely comment again soon!

And thanks for the kind comments on the entry. I had so much fun with it. :)
