English: Feast or Famine Restaurant Photo take...Freelancers will be very familiar with the feast or famine idea. Sometimes you have nothing at all to do, and then, like buses, everything arrives at once.

Famine

For most of Monday I had an empty week ahead of me. The paper that was supposed to be coming my way last Thursday or Friday hadn’t appeared and I hadn’t heard back from my new potential client.

Then Feast

Then, at the end of the day, and in the space of two hours, it all changes. The new client wants to go ahead and (in the absence of the other paper) I commit to delivering to him by the end of the week. No sooner had I done that then the long-awaited first paper appears.

Let the feast begin!
