I decided I’m tired of wearing sweats all the time.
Anybody out there get me?
As a writer, you don’t have to dress up for work. It’s easy to start your day in pajamas and find yourself still in them at noon. Nice clothes hang in the closet, longing for a chance to see daylight. A baseball cap is the solution to fixing your hair. Let’s face it–it’s tough to justify getting dressed up to go to the post office.
That said, there’s something to be said for treating your job–like a job. I’m not saying you need to wear a three piece suit or skirt and blouse to your desk, but it sure doesn’t hurt to shower first thing and change into something that makes you feel a bit more professional. After all, just because you can do an interview in your skivvies, doesn’t mean you should, right?
I’m tossing this out there to FZ readers–what do you wear to write? Do you agree with my new resolution to dress a bit nicer and take that morning shower first thing? Or do you think that part of the “free” in freelancer means the right to work in whatever you please?
I’d love to know.
