I left a 3-star review for a buyer who left me a 4-star review. This was in truth due to their encouraging me to cancel, as well as an enormobrief of approx 5,000 words for a 100 word trial. For their client. Happy with my writing, unhappy with the results. They also gave me a choice of 3 things to write! Can you see where the problem might have arised, kiddies?
They must have noticed, as they modified their initial review to something about how offensive my writing was (still 4-stars!) rather than blowing readers out of the water. This kind of irritated me as it was the first time it was mentioned. So I had the old review still up… and now I’ve Imgured it and posted it on the review with my own new review. (emojis on forum plz).
Another buyer also told me that someone had copied my gig so I went and shouted at them (stolen pic of Danish pastor, “lives in the USA”, terrible English etc). and they’ve semi-removed it. And they named himself after a recently expired pope (worry not, Pope Nazi is still with us and has a book to flog about being terrorized by the “gay lobby” at the Vatican).
Finally: have you guys seen the insane “other” category in the marketplace? The one right at the end. Thar be dumb dragons. It’s a work of art, if art was made by people who can’t tie up their shoelaces, never mind operate a computer.
I dunno, maybe it was a joke. But I still don’t understand why anyone would think that 25USD/40AUD was a “top dollar” price for a trial which you’re basically using to get cheap work for your client. And the brief was full of spelling mistakes which I decided not to tell you about if you read this. Seriously, sort it out mate. Look at your own tagline suggestions and mood suggestions. I was pitch perfect on those. If you meant me to focus on some other part of your 5,000 word brief, BE MORE BLOODY CONCISE AND SAY IT and save us this bloody song and dance.
