Flexible Working Hours

The more you write, the more you’ll get noticed. If you put a lot of energy into something, you’re bound to find out that people recognize you for your talents, and sometimes even ask you to share them. But writing everyday is not easy, and turning out lots of articles, blog entries, poetry, or other snippets can be difficult sometimes.

Working from home is also challenging, with all of those little distractions, and the knowledge that it would be so easy to rest on the couch or change a load of laundry instead of hammering away on your keyboard. It’s good to get up and stretch, even walk around the block when you’re a dedicated writer. And making your own schedule is more than a little worthwhile, especially when you need to schedule medical appointments or take kids to and from school and sporting events.

The important thing to remember is that while your work schedule is flexible, it is not non-existent. You do work from home, and that does not mean that you fit in your work when everyone won’t bother you. It really means that no one can bother you while you are working. There’s a bit of a difference between the two, and if you’re a writer working from home, you know exactly what I’m saying.
