This week seems to be Have Fun at Work Week here at Figart Consulting.
Got a couple of clients who have a quirky sense of humor. God, it I love it when that happens.
Being a freelance writer is funny. Sometimes you get these really interesting projects. If you have a particular hobby horse, you sometimes get paid to ride it. I always like that. All my projects this week are stuff I actually have a real interest in. This does happen more often than not, because if you’re really into something, your proposals start sounding all excited. And let’s be frank, if you’re hiring a writer, having one that’s enthusiastic about your topic is always nice. But sometimes you get some weird, or boring stuff.
Sometimes you have a project where when you start researching it starts to scare the living bajesus out of you. I had one not too long ago. It was Friday, Press Enter, The Happiness Patrol and 2001: A Space Odyssey all rolled into one. I’ve uncurled from my little ball, though.
But not this week, thank goodness. I’ve got a couple of ones where I’ve rushed home from the gym with an Oh boy! I get to noodle about something I like and get paid for it!
Why, yes, I do love my job.
