Writer Does the Right Thing; Stops Work on Unpaid Project

Angela,

I’d like to thank you for being a good person and reasonable businesswoman. Even when I don’t have time to read your newsletter, just seeing it in my mailbox makes me feel better by reminding me that there are nice people in the world.

I’m writing the content of a website for a guy who has told me twice now that the check is in the mail. Can you believe he was surprised when I told him I was suspending work on his project until I received my check? In what Universe would a writer continue to send him material?

Thank you for letting me share.

M.
