It's been a good week. I have:
-found a new client with interesting projects and good rates
-invoiced a decent amount of my own work
-managed several projects for writers on my team.
The team thing is starting to smooth out, which is great. I'm learning a lot about managing, editing and juggling. I've always een a good juggler and I think I'm hitting a rhythm with a few good writers.
I've had a few hard lessons this week. One was that a writer I admired let me down in a big way. I don't know what the reasons were but it was disheartening and sobering.This almost cost me dearly. Hindsight is 20/20 though and I'll be much more careful in future.
I also found a great article online about firing clients from h, e, double hockey sticks. Have a read: firing the client.
Hope you have a great weekend. Curl up with a good book, do some creative writing and catch a glimpse of some emerging fall colours!
