What's your worst writing experience? How do you handle bad clients?


I had an experience where a gentleman asked me to write an article for his magazine. I did so and submitted per our agreement. He then requested multiple re-writes (not a big deal) and then changed the article topic completely. At one point I'd written him several completely separate articles as well as shown him my portfolio. I asked for a 50% deposit before I wrote him yet another article. He declined and stated he couldn't pay until he had the final product. At this point I figured he had no intention of paying me so I politely declined writing further. What's your bad client story?
