When It Rains, it Pours – Be Careful What You Wish For- Multiple Freelance Clients

We all know that old saying be careful what you wish for now don’t we?I had wanted more clients…


So I am in the midst of a complex project ghost writing a book, it entails thinking outside the box as my client wants a particular mood and look for this publication. It entails focus and with no other projects waiting I was fairly happy that along with my personal writing commitments I would easily handle them all. Then a past client contacted me out of the blue to ask if I could write a couple more online lessons for her (I have written several previously) and could she have them prior to 1st March – her launch date! Now I am juggling and can see a weekend away from the distractions of home hiding in the library!

Obviously client work comes first and these projects take priority over my other commitments which are:

  1. Book reviews for two authors.
  2. Manuscript review for one author
  3. Editing & revising one of my own manuscripts
  4. Planning Canada 150 year celebrations for my writing foundation (as secretary) and Arts & Culture Council (as President) and a writing conference.

So I will not be wishing for more work just at the moment.

How do you handle multiple projects at the same time?

Very busy businesswoman

    Hey Mandy. I think you need to learn to say “no” to clients sometimes. Like that old client that came out of the blue with her online lessons. Trust me, once you learn to say no once in a while, your freelancing life will be much easier.
