Blowing off steam

By Katharine Swan On Thursday, September 25, 2008 At 2:52 AM

I was really upset earlier this evening over some emails my deadbeat client sent (the deadline is now two days away and I think he's feeling the pinch, so he's stepping up his intimidation efforts).

Unfortunately, I have a lot of work over the next few days — some end-of-the-month deadlines for one of my bigger clients — so I couldn't afford to not work, even as upset as I was.

As it turned out, though, my anger actually helped me to get more done (usually it's just the opposite). In fact, I felt so invigorated that I worked quite late (as you can see), and got quite a bit done. And working, in turn, helped me to blow off some steam.

I can't wait to be able to tell you guys about my deadbeat client. Stay tuned — he doesn't seem like he's going to pay up, so I'm sure I'll be telling all very soon!

I can't wait to hear about that deadbeat client. You got me on the edge of my seat.

Thanks, Mariella, I am. :o)

The deadbeat didn't pay, though, so I'll be dealing with complaints and such on Monday. I'll blog about it then, too.
