I'm Disappointed


Guest

I have been working on a pitch for an article and did the research. Wrote the piece and told it was going to be bought. I did the revisions and shot the photos only to be told at the last minute (upon review) that they couldn't use teh piece at this time. It is like being told by the Prom Queen you're going to get lucky tonight only for her to change her mind at the last moment or be in a race only to lose at the last moment. Sigh. Back to work.

That sucks. That happens to me sometimes, too. Do all the work then, "Oops, nevermind!" :anger:

I was thinking today and it dawned on me that the previous editor of the magazine was smart by saying I should bring in an invoice for the freelance work. It basically nips shit like this in the bud. I should have brought in an invoice for this article.

Look at Stephen King, he got messed about a lot by magazines a lot during his early days! Now look at him!

How did Stephen King get messed up by mags in his early days, Graham? By the way, Stephen King writes a biweekly column in Entertainment weekly and I have to say his writing there sucks.
