I went through a phase a couple months ago where I was overwhelmed with work...as in I had 17 articles ordered within a 48 hour window...
Something had to give and it was me...I was unable to complete all the orders. It was a very stressful time, trying to make everyone happy.
Just a week or so prior I had my first real negative review of my work. Some quotes "this is junk" "I can't believe I waited this long for this Sh&^" (four days) "Have you even been in the woods before?"...as you can see it was a pretty harsh pill to swallow. I am confident in my abilities, but something like this can't help but bring to down.
So deadlines started dropping and I started missing them, I made up some ground but people kept ordering. Finally I turned off my ad so no one could order any more and tried to climb out of the hole.
I have a couple clients I write for directly so those clients were given priority, and I am now caught back up, but I don't plan on reactivating my ad anytime soon.
Instead I am working on a fiction project, along with the prepper e-book project.
Still looking to raise income to the level where I can stay on the farm and work and have the writing make up the difference in income.
