Clients From HellI had done some editing work for a relatively small company when the owner called me in about my pay. After a somewhat heated discussion, this is how it ended.More Like This
Client: Oh come on, we’re a pretty well-known business. Instead of [paying you the full amount] I can give you some exposure! You people are always looking for more exposure, aren’t you?
Me: With all due respect, sir, I would much prefer you just give me my pay and leave it at that. I have all the exposure I need right now short of being naked. Not to mention that this was a relatively small job for me.
Client: But it was a 5000 word document!
Me: I normally edit documents in excess of 20 pages. And I normally expect more than what you’re paying me.
Client: Fuck you! I’ll sue you for being a prick!
Me: You never actually read my contract before you signed it, did you?
Me: See you in court, have fun paying for my lawyer.

Some art/webcomic adviceI got this really thoughtful question on my tumblr a week or two ago in regards to art/webcomics:More Like This
"Hello K-bo, I Have been aspiring to be a webcomic artist much like yourself for a long time. Viewing your artwork and your achievements inspire me to reach out for my dreams. I wasn't able to see you at Fan Expo this year so I wasn't able to ask you this in person. I feel like I'm at a point where I'm comfortable enough with my art and style to start a webcomic... but I have no idea where to start... Do you have any advice? Thank you!"

You haven't spoken since the war had first begun and he was drafted, so on one clear day in October you had received a letter from Watson telling you that he had come back from the war due to an injury. It also said that he had moved to London with a new friend of his, Sherlock Holmes, and that he would love it if you would come by and visit him.

You climbed into the carriage, put your luggage, and pulled out your notebook. You were a writer, or at least you were trying to be. The world that is around you doesn't offer a lot to a woman. Y
