Should you leave #freelance   #writing  for a full-time job? This is a dilemma many freelance writers face, including some who have been freelancing for a long time and have had significant success.

There are many ways to approach the question, and the answer will be different depending on the individual and the specifics of the full-time job.

"Today humanists, atheists and other nontheists across the nation will be observing the National Day of Reason, an alternative to the National Day of Prayer. This is the first year that a congressional resolution (House Res. 228) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to honor the National Day of Reason."

Nearly all of us get writer's block. The key is to figure out how to get past it and get on with your writing. That's why it's often very useful to ask yourself: "Why do I have writer's block?" Your brain will usually give you one or more good answers, and once you have those answers you can figure out how to get writing.

John, I think you meant "craggy veteran" (or maybe "cranky veteran"?)—but I'm deeply appreciative of you putting my stuff out there. Thanks!

This infographic presents data on the low percentages of women in STEM. Young girls start out very interested and very talented in STEM subjects, but much of the interest evaporates by the time they reach college. #highereducation   #STEM
