I know one cannot quote song lyrics without permission, but I am not certain about song titles. Therefore, I will say that the title of today’s blog post should be the title of the most famous song by the 1980s band Loverboy. If you grew up in the 1980s, you should know it. 🙂
Since I have begun freelancing as an editor, I have found that some clients will give me a project and want it in a very short amount of time. These tight deadlines then require me to work on the weekend, often burning the midnight oil on a Saturday night. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not complaining about my work–I love editing. I guess it’s just that I mistakenly (naively?) thought of it as a weekday, 9-to-5 gig when I started out.
Could I not be managing my time well? Or am I just having bad luck with timing?
My freelance editor friends, do you often find yourself having to work on the weekends? Please comment on this post and let me know.
