Please Be Patient With This Space

I'm on deadline and Freaking The Heck Out.

Half my book is due to my editors on Friday and I'm endlessly fiddling with it because what? You want to see half of my book in the half-written stage? Why don't you just ask to see my underwear? Or in a bathing suit in the middle of winter after not shaving for a month?

Seriously.

ROFL, I love it!

I know its not exactly the same in my field, but I feel your pain.

I once had a client demand, three days into a six week, 300 article project, to see an outline for each article.

Yeah. That's gonna happen.

This is the e-mail I sent:

"Dear NEWCLIENT:

I am not opposed to providing you a portion of your deliverables prior to the project end date. If you would like to see a sample of some of my progress, I'll be happy to share it.

However, my writing process is my own. I won't be providing any outlines. If this is a problem, we can end this project on amiable terms.

Sincerely,

Bob Younce"


Now, here is the e-mail I wanted to send:

"Dear Moron:

Get bent.

Bob"

Bounced over from blogher ads. Your site is adorable! Going to look at more.
That made me laugh so hard, and I needed the laugh. Thanks!
