My plan to reestablish my freelance writing schedule this week backfired. Over the weekend I found a piano, and will be meeting the movers at the thrift store tomorrow. I expect the move to take up a major chunk of my day. On top of that, I have some help with household projects available to me this week, so I decided to take advantage of it.
It helps, of course, that my biggest client is on hiatus at the moment, which has freed up a little time in my schedule.
Of course, the nice thing about freelancing is that I don't have to totally play hooky.
I'm still taking a little work from two of my regular clients, so I'll be making up for the lost daytime hours by working a little in the evenings. It'll turn my schedule on its head for another week, but at least I'll still get a little work done even during my week of "playing hooky."
For the most part I try not to get into the habit of doing this too much, because it's so easy to end up not working at all, especially if I put it off until evening. It makes it too tempting to say, "Oh, I'm too tired; I'll do it tomorrow." But I have an awful lot of projects hanging over my head, and it'll be good to take advantage of the help while I have it.
What about you? Do you think of your freelance schedule as fluid and flexible, able to be changed around if needed, or do you stick to a strict writing schedule?
