On Seven Years as a Freelance Writer, or, How To Make Vitamin Soup

As a 30 year veteran of the freelance wars, I can verify this is the truth, however wrapped in hyperbole at times.

Freelancing is like marriage to an abusive spouse who keeps you hanging on with intermittent rewards.

The best defense is to define your own terms--draw the line on what you will tolerate--and then stick to them. You may get less work, but you'll also take it up the ass a lot less frequently.
