An Editor’s Ramblings
I’ve been working my *^% off on the upcoming issue of Style Sample magazine only to have an uncooperative cover subject flake and not send photos.
A great article was written (and it was difficult to get responses to the interview questions–I should have known then), four inside pages have been allotted, the issue comes out in a matter of days, and after repeated requests and multiple deadline extensions, I have no photos for the article and no cover image.
Seriously, boo? That’s unfair not only to me, but to the writer of the article and all the other contributors who managed to get their sh*t together and send everything in on time. Real talk.
It’s cool, though. I’ve been working on a mini-redesign and am excited to see what everyone thinks. I’m also experimenting with some ads, so we’ll see how that goes as well.
So it’s not like I don’t have enough on my plate, but whatever, we’ll make it work. I just wish people would stick to their commitments, you know?
