A Free-lance Life

This is the first month in a while that I have had some time to pursue my own work again and work on my tarot deck. Since I do not have many outside imposed deadlines and set work times I'm trying really hard to create a freelance schedule.  My day job is involving more freelance work, and I have cut back my hours at Starbucks. I have to make an effort to plan time for getting out of the house, exercising and setting a time to stop working and do things to inspire me.

I'm slowly working out how to plan out a day that works for me. In the past I have had a tendency to fill every waking moment I am not at my day job with art stuff, but that was ok because my day job got me out of the house, socializing and moving about.

Jessica Hische's blog has helped me out a lot in the preliminary steps of planning my freelance schedule. Meg Hunt's illustration blog has also been a great resource especially her section on Drawing Drills and the Icon 8 conference. Do any of you have suggestions on how to schedule and organize in a freelance world?

I'm making an August the 18th resolution to plan more time for; sketching, exploring, experimenting, socializing, inspiration and collaborating.
