Freelancing Advice

We never make enough money, do we?
Here's my advice. Make some money each day.
Ideally, that means you submit something for which you'll be paid . Maybe it's a 'how-to' for an internet site, or a magazine filler. In a perfect world, you have contracts for these pieces and you know the company will pay you within a month.
If you don't have an assignment for the day, work hard on getting one. Send queries. Trawl the job sites. Work on your blog or website so that your presentation as a professional is flawless--even if you're still in your pajamas.
But do something, at least five days a week, to get paid. Or start filling out job applications at McDonald's and Subway.
