Kami Miller pt 2: Navigating the Complexities of Freelance Writing

In this episode of Good Life Stories, I am continuing my enlightening conversation with freelance writer Kami Miller. We talk about the realities and challenges of pursuing a writing career. As a talented storyteller, Kami has carved out a rewarding yet complex path in the freelance world.

Kami offers candid insights into the pros and cons of freelancing. While she relishes the freedom and potential rewards, she acknowledges the difficulties of inconsistent income and juggling client work with personal projects. We explore the pressures of prioritizing paid gigs and finding balance as a creative professional.

“You have the potential for huge rewards. The harder you work, the more likely you are to gain some rewards out of it. And it’s all on you, but you only apply as much pressure to yourself as you want.”

Together, Kami and I delve into the main points surrounding the writing life – time management, editing, design, ethical dilemmas, and more. She shares her experiences balancing multiple hats as a freelancer along with the fulfillment of doing work she loves.

This episode offers an insider’s perspective on the writing industry for aspiring authors and creatives. Kami’s wisdom provides valuable advice for navigating freelance work while staying true to your passion.

About Kami Miller

Kami, who writes memoirs as Tammy Owen and fantasy novels and stories as E. M. Prazeman and KZ Miller, lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, you know, where it rains a lot. What a lot of people don’t know is that her area has very dry summers, so she ends up dragging hundreds of feet of hose around the garden. This requires hose guides, all of which are impromptu ‘temporary’ things like the broken ends of rakes. 

Dragging hose also requires muscle. Luckily she’s built up quite a bit moving alfalfa bales, running heavy equipment like sicklebar mowers and oversized rototillers, digging out invasive blackberry vines, and wrestling with goats, among other picturesque activities. 

Her extremely patient, generous husband, international man of mystery Rory Miller, is always there to lend a hand with nary an eye roll. She would still be buried in blackberries, or eaten by cougars, or some other horrible fate if it weren’t for him. 

Kami enjoys belly dancing, painting, climbing, travel, and putting her feet up and reading a good book. She hopes to do all that again someday, when the farm is all in order.
