Friday Fun For Freelance Writers

freelance writing funYou’d think that, as a freelance writer, Friday wouldn’t mean much. After all, I can take time off any time I want, right? So why do I often feel a happy anticipation about the weekend on Fridays?

The main reason, I suppose, is I don’t do my writing on the weekends. Oh, I’ll work for a client once and awhile in a pinch, but mostly I claim the weekends as my own. Guess that makes me like most folks in the work world.

Here’s some fun for you:

  • Boatload Puzzles has free crosswords – you can do them right on screen, no java or shockwave required and no noise! Apparently there are 40,000 of the darn things!
  • CreativeCopyChallenge is now up to Challenge 24. These are coming now about twice a week and some truly good and interesting writing is showing up there. Don’t let that intimidate you though. It’s turning out these challenges are also developing some talented writing. It’s a fun way to learn.

Do you have a favorite word game or other puzzle you’d like to see listed here? Put it in comments and I’ll follow-up.

  • Do you have any extremely challenging puzzles for me to try? I feel like I am not being challenged anymore with any of these puzzles. Thanks!
