Freecation!

Or maybe Valancing…

Before Sarah Palin was making up words, I was and with my upcoming vacation back to Denver, I came up with ‘freecation’.

So what is a freecation? Well, as I hang out with friends for the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m figuring out what that means. Essentially, it’s when a freelancer goes on vacation. For me, this is a vacation technically from my actual job, but I could certainly understand what it would be like as a freelancer that’s on vacation. As this is technically the first time that I have been a side freelancer, I’d like to commit on it.

Personally, I’m finding it quite enjoyable. So far, I’ve been able to work on freelancing and still able to hang out with friends and go exploring through the city. I think this actually is because my are aware and very supportive of my move to trying freelancing.

Of course, I’ve read freelancing blogs and articles that state, even if you’re a freelancer, you should take a vacation. Vacations are good for you, certainly after you’ve completed a big project. It’s a reward, the type of thing you would get if you had a 9 to 5 job. And that’s of course important when you may be stuck in the house for a large amount of time.

For me, I want to keep freelancing fun, as writing has always been for me. And really, that’s what most freelancers should feel too – that their work is enjoyable even after several years.

Anyway, today and next week I’m going to be loving Denver. I will see you all next week with some Thanksgiving wishes!
