Here's a challenge for you: I'm a freelancer and I just sold my first book (a memoir with poems). Hooray for me. Now I'm on a tight deadline so I'm basically working at home, all day, every day. I can stay in my bathrobe 24/7 but I find that when I do, I end up sitting on the couch, watching Law & Order reruns and eating last night's pizza. I do believe that "clothes make the man (woman or person)" so I want to figure out what to wear so that I feel like I'm "at work" but comfortable and I want to look pulled together in case I get a visitor (or so that the Seamless person doesn't call 911 on me). What should my work-at-home uniform be? And do you have tips to keeping myself focused during these long stretches of keyboard time? Thank you!

Hi Marissa! The answer to all your questions will go live this Friday. Thank you for your awesome question! --Vinny
