55 Days in the Life of a Freelance Writer by Toby Welch
Why am I narcissistic enough to think a book about what I do every day would ever interest anyone? I don’t find myself that fascinating. But I get asked one question over and over again – what is it like to be a freelance writer? I work from home 95% of the time and people have no clue how the day of a freelance writer is spent. Some people think I sit around eating bon-bons all day, watching Jerry Springer while my byline magically appears in magazines and flash drives get filled with words.
This book will answer the probing question of how the life of a typical freelance writer unfolds. Of course this is solely my writing life; other freelancers will have their own daily habits and experiences. I hope you enjoy the glimpse into the life of a writer.
