Working weekend!

I'm finishing the last of my restaurant reviews this weekend. I may write more, but it's difficult to say. My full-time job makes working weekends seem a bit -- too much.

I was afraid of that.

Ms. Write's Guide to Freelance Life: Lesson One

Don't overcommit yourself. While the freelance life is "feast or famine," you have to realistically know what you can finish in a certain time frame.

I used to say yes to everything (even now I find it hard to say no!) and found myself pulling my hair out as I ran screaming from my home office.

Know your pressure level and err on the side of caution. You always want to be able to meet your deadlines.
