I believe that there are other ways of looking at the freelance writing process and these involve taking control of the writing process. I have been freelancing enough years and for a regular enough paycheck that I simply take whatever is given to me and churn out words. Editors and quality assurance people know that whatever I produce will generally pass muster with the client. Fair enough.
This gives me the freedom to approach my music and literary writing such as Arisugawa Park from a standpoint of ultimate vulnerability, with myself and myself only.
