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?

      I’ve already e-cussed all over the place and came up with some words even Google doesn’t know! Everything is working out, though, so go figure.

      Aww…I appreciate your generous offer to inflict physical harm upon an unknown stranger on my behalf, but it’s not necessary. This time.

    Welcome to the world of editing! That’s fairly common behavior; sadly; I could tell you horror stories, but it always works out in the end.

      Grrr, how frustrating! It is all working out though, so you’re right.
