I was speaking w/ my former employer about the possibility of freelancing for them. They're definitely interested. My former supervisor said that there has been frustration among the staff in the department with other freelance writers because of a perceived lack of responsiveness. She said that staff members were frustrated because they had a hard time getting in touch a freelancer. She was concerned because '...freelancers operate on their own schedules.' Of course, as we all know, the purpose of freelancing is to be able to work on your own schedule. However, it seems that corporate clients also want freelancers to be available during business hours. How does one handle that challenge? Any advice? I want to create an understanding upfront, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I don't think, however, that I should be chained to my desk waiting for their call?
