Working from Home


It may not be the best option there is for those who want to earn huge amount of money, but if working from home gives me more freedom to do what I want, like writing and free from any disruption in an office setting—then I would still go for it.

I left my last full-time job because it gave me health risks. Yes, I maybe paid well, but the demands of working not just late nights, but would also extend to days of sleepless or stressful ones—it is no longer helping me. I am not growing any younger and I must be wiser instead.

As 2010 started, there were some outsource writing jobs I had to turn down, but there are also that even if it’s not that high-paying, I am looking at it on my convenience as well as its long-term effect.

It’s quite interesting how I survived over the holidays, since I still didn’t get my last pay, my tax refund and my 13th month pay from my previous work. Despite the downturn, I refused to give up. Though, I am convinced that I want to work from home, I’ve got two job interviews today, which frankly I am not keen in going.

I would still prefer to write at the comforts of my home, in my room since our Internet is already back. I can write free from any distractions and that is what I want—to be isolated when I am writing. That is when I am more effective and productive.

Like what Jessamyn West quotes (American Writer, 1902-1984) has to say about this profession, “Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends, and society are the natural enemies of the writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted, and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking.”
