Life of a freelancer: Perfecting the nap

An important mandatory requirement of being a freelancer is the ability to drop everything, put on some kind of daytime talk show and have snorefest with the dogs for an hour, maybe two.

This, my dears, is essential to the creative process.

It is important to get as much work done as possible between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon, then scarf down a breakfast burrito or a bowl of soup, then invest in a siesta. That is because it is a well known fact that a person only has four quality hours of productivity every day.

Look it up.

Don't spend one minute more than four hours. You'll produce nothing, but nothing first rate.

I am not kidding about this.

Besides, the dogs need their nap and they have expectations.

I have had a nap nearly every day of my life, including during the teenage years.

It has helped me keep my girlish looks.

And it has helped me keep my sanity between paycheques.

So if you are quitting your job, or getting fired by the federal government, it's important to practise, practise, practise.

The technique I practise is illustrated below.
