July was officially a great month: I topped my previous record for the most income in one month.
I've mentioned a few times that I'm working on a big project right now -- a never-ending project, unfortunately. Well, yesterday I received a check for completing the first major chunk of the project. Thanks to that little slip of paper, my income for July shot right over the record that I set last July.
Clearly July is my busiest month, because in almost two years of freelancing full-time July has been a record-setting month both times. This year, however, it seems August might be even higher, as I am anticipating finishing the big project this month.
Last year I experienced a period of major burnout when my "summer rush" ended. In order to prevent the same thing from happening this year, I intend to take several days off as soon as I can manage it, after which I will start dedicating an hour or two every day to writing fiction. My goal is to cut back my freelance work a little bit so that I have more time for several projects of my own.
