I am constantly amazed at how many people who are not self employed are seemingly clueless about those of us who are..
The idea prevails that we "homeworkers" have no schedule to keep..or that on the spur of the moment we can just drop whatever we are doing.
How many of us have heard comments.."oh, you are an artist..work at home, that must be so much fun"
uh, yes it's fun..but it's not play..if you do not work..you do not make any money..and the bills do not get paid.
Having been self employed for decades and working out of my home( studio) even good friends do not seem to realize or hear me when i say..no i can't do that i'm working ..or my schedule is very tight this week, i can't take time off ...or this is a real job.
One wonders what people actually have in their minds about artists and The Work.
Apparently you just add water and bing..the Thing springs into being..
Ok , so this may seem like a little rant..but really how many of us have encountered this very thing over and over again..
Ahh, the mystery of being a creative person.
