Alright, got my first gig. Yay!
The money isn't as good as I would want, but I can climb my way to the top. I don't mind that.
Anyway, start doing the work, and the client even says they like my proposed edits. I asked them two questions about the story, and they said, "I need to let the story breath'.
They want to cancel. Very nice about it, and I was being professional, etc.
Anyway, I am just pissed because I think I could have stuck the landing if given the opportunity. I didn't say anything because I think arguing with the client isn't professional. But now I have this story in my head and I can't work on it.
Just need to vent.
Solved! Go to Solution.
They sent an offer, it appears that I am getting paid. So I don't think I got scammed. Still very annoying.
I will note it would be my first time getting paid, so I don't know how it actually works.
Thanks, that made me laugh. It helps to know others have had a similar experience.
I feel like 80% of the posts are fraudulant. 10% are people who don't understand what formating is, and 9% are people who actually mean 'ghost write'...
