What are the busiest times in the essay business for writers? srandrewsThreads: 17Posts: 167Joined: Aug 4, 2012 Observer Sep 11, 2012, 07:40PM | #1 Specifically, what would you say the absolute busiest weeks are? Last week of October? First week of November? Other? FreelanceWriterThreads: 6Posts: 1,063Joined: Oct 8, 2008 Writer Sep 11, 2012, 09:14PM | #2 The last couple of weeks before the major US holiday vacations in November and December and right before the end of the traditional academic year in May. But these days, people take courses online all year long and I've noticed that business doesn't really drop off as much during the traditional slow months as it used to. I usually have enough work to fill my calendar all year long. The only really slow times are the first few weeks in January and June, right after the busiest crushes. srandrewsThreads: 17Posts: 167Joined: Aug 4, 2012 Observer Sep 11, 2012, 09:21PM | #3 Freelancewriter, you're back!

I've also seen the same as FreelanceWriter this year with no huge drop off in the summer compared to seasons past. A lot of the summer work seemed to be re-sit work and online programs. Long may it continue. HelenrobThreads: 1Posts: 102Joined: Jun 23, 2012 Writer Sep 12, 2012, 05:18AM | #7 Mid-October to December before christmas.
