Great Nerves, Thick Skin

One of the hardest things to deal with as a freelance writer is the occasional lulls. I had three great months, and now I'm going through a lull. There are jobs, and I am working, but not the way I was for those other months. It was wonderful, and it's so hard to keep in mind that those times don't last forever, and that it goes up and down, when you're so busy you don't even have time to sleep, and money is rolling in easily. When the lulls come around, it's hard to remember that they are temporary, and won't last forever. I swear, to be a freelancer you have to have nerves of steel, and skin thicker than a rhino.
