Deals with the Devil

For five years and one month I've been a full-time freelance writer/editor. Today I'm a...what?

After much discussion, I've leased my soul to the devil. Effective today I'm a part-time employee of one of my key clients. There were numerous reasons for this change in our relationship, but the upshot, for me, is a modest increase in gross income and a significant decrease in self-employment tax.

I'll still be freelancing 30-40 hours each week, so I'm still a full-time freelancer. But now I have a part-time job.

So it goes.

A little economic stability is a good thing.

I have just been released from one of my freelance gigs so the universe is in balance once more.
