The trouble with knowledge work is that one day you realize you could continue this exact work session forever and new work would just appear to replace whatever you’ve gotten done.
This might be hard for writers just at the start of their journey to believe.
At first, it’s all about the hustle: who are these mysterious creatures who will give me money for writing, and where can I find them?
But once you build up your portfolio, get a little specialized, and prove you’re reliable and friendly to work with….
The work keeps coming, and it does not stop.
That’s why epic freelancers are really epic prioritizers, epic boundary setters…
Or they epically fail in their relationships and having a personal life.
