Freelancing Work Is Tough

My mind is a blank. The flickering light from the silent TV stands as a guiding illumination to my tired fingers trying to find their way across the keyboard. My job as a freelance writer has its perks in terms of monetary gains, but it also takes a toll on my eyes, my back and my sanity.

I often find myself slaving away in front of the PC alone and awake in the middle of the night. My employers are on different time zones and I had to adjust to them most of the time.

Don't get me wrong. I love writing, blogging, and interacting with other bloggers. It is the loneliness that often gets to my head and sometimes weakens my resolve to work.

Lately, I have noticed I instinctively recoil at the thought of writing another article on the same topic over and over again. I would love a change of pace and a change in tasks. Tinkering around my Wordpress blog has given me a short respite to this dark period in my work life. I hope it passes soon so I can work and breathe again at the same time. I don't want my creativity to die from burnout and exhaustion.
