One of the side effects of freelancing — and I’ll do a whole post on that, soon, considering freelancing seems to be my work, at least for now — is the occasional odd deadline. And that means, too often, a late night or weekend.
Now, you don’t have to take the work if the deadline sucks. It’s your choice. That’s a freelancing plus.
But, then, you don’t get paid. A minus.
Anyway, I’ve been experimenting on different ways to change things up when I’m working late or on weekends. I’ll grab the laptop and head down to the porch once in a while, sit on the couch out there and enjoy the semi-outdoors while I’m pounding away. It’s getting cooler here in Georgia in late August. The humidity is starting to back off some. So the screened-in back porch is a nice alternative.
That’s where I was Saturday afternoon, working on a piece for WebMD, when I took the picture above.
It’s hell on my posture. But it beats the hell out of a real office.
