I love what I do and am grateful I am allowed to do it.  And yet, as a freelance writer I never know for sure where the next job is coming from.  Freelancers live from magazine piece to magazine piece, from book to book.  There is a reason I spend so much time on the road, always with notebook, paperbacks and CDs (and sometimes a guitar) at hand.  But it’s a good life and as I said, I’m big-G Grateful for it — especially in these times, when even traditionally solid jobs seem prone to evaporation.

I said all that so you know I mean no disrespect to tough times when I say I love how this freelance writer describes the uncertainty of freelance writing in the very name of his blog: Eight Days to Amish.

Nice one.
