Essay Contest: Tell Me About Your Most Hellish Freelance Writing Jobs

Most Hellish Freelance Writing Jobs: An Essay Contest. Makealivingwriting.com

Ever had a client who was a total nightmare? If you do even a handful of freelance writing jobs, it’s bound to happen.

They don’t know what they want. Their deadline is yesterday. You’re getting gang-edited by a team of five.

Since I’ve been at this a long time, I’ve pretty much had every flavor.

But what’s your worst story? I’ve decided to collect them all here on the blog comments (yes, they’re open again for this post!), so other writers can learn the red flags to watch out for.

What’s in it for you? You could win a free year in my freelance writer community, among other goodies.
