All, I have recently entered the world of freelance writing and editing, and have been loving it.
However, because nearly 100% of my communication with clients occurs online, mistakes can happen. Some are irrelevant, some are…like this.
It was a day just like today–actually, it was today–that I tried to type the very benign words “You got it!” to a freelance client. This was supposed to convey boyish enthusiasm and a passion for the work.
Instead, I hit enter and was suddenly looking at this phrase:
“You go tit.”
And now everything hangs in the balance.
I am recommitted to slowing down and breathing.
