Like the author, I really only work part-time though I’ve managed to figure out how to earn a full-time income on maybe more than 30 hours a week.
The reason a lot of people work full-time – though they’d rather not – is obvious: part-time jobs as they exist today are often pretty crappy, low-paid, and with no health benefits, irregular schedules and few opportunities for advancement.
I also do write this from Starbucks on Saturday after writing 2k words, editing some client stuff and reading. My wife was suddenly sick yesterday so I took the day off, but this time I have deadlines so I work. I can’t tell you the last time I had to work on a weekend though.
