    I've had a rough couple of days this week. It started Sunday night. Between now and then I've had restless nights, fluttering feelings, a bit of lightheadedness, and a variety of other symptoms.

    I don't know about you, but freelance writing is a dream job for me. That doesn't mean it's without its downsides though. Long hours stuck behind a desk can't be good for anyone, but when you work from home alone you don't have the benefit of co-workers to entice you to get up and take a quick break or go […]
