The people who are fascinated seem to view freelance writing much the way I did before I actually became one. As I recall, I pictured fame, fortune, and, I don’t know, a life of ease and glamor. I knew I’d never struggle for a word, phrase, or to hone an idea so it made sense on paper. I’d be perpetually creative.
Yeah! Right!
