How A Minimalist Lifestyle Could Help Your Writing

MinimalismMinimalism for freelancers makes a lot of sense. When you work from home, you’re constantly fighting off distractions. Shrinking the amount of stuff you have can make a world of difference in helping you stay focused.

In the latest Mediabistro feature, one freelancer shares her story about simplifying mind and matter. So how can freelancers declutter their space to create a work-friendly environment? First, take a look at what’s around you:

To hear more of her story, read: The Minimalist Freelance Life.
