If you have to worry about paying the bills, freelancing might be
stressful and unpleasant, especially if you want to work only
part-time and/or for nonprofits.

I prefer being a full-time employee, but, in my market, I've ended up
contracting when the market was down, I got laid off, and that was all
I could get.

I was a freelance journalist for 10+ years before I switched to tech
writing, so that was nothing new.
