UntitledIf you are planning to be a freelance writer, here are some words of advice, “Do not dream about working in your pajamas.” A common misconception is that writers sit at home sipping coffee or tea in nightclothes and write. But your P.J.s don’t work, and actually can decrease productivity.

Make a Living Writing explains why the freelance dream of working in P.J.s is total B.S. Staying in bed and not getting dressed equals no transition. Even if you’re going to stay home all day, still get up and dress up. I promise, you will feel how much it changes your productivity. Make your home an office and treat it like an actual work setting by dressing for work. Save the P.J.s for casual Fridays.
