Materials writing conversations #8: Ghosted!

This is a completely imaginary conversation. No characters in the convo are based on real people – I’m just bored and imagining conversations I might have with editors…

November 23rd

Dear Peter,

Thanks for confirming your availability for our project. We hope to get started early next year. Thanks also for the unpaid sample, which was great!

We are really keen to work with you. I’ll get back to you once we have more details about dates, deliverables, etc. Expect an email within the next week or two max.

Please do keep the next three or four months of your schedule free. In fact, better make that five months – we’ll probably decide on a big change during the project which requires more of your time. And just a heads up, we’ll probably find a way to say the change was part of your original deliverable (meaning you won’t get paid unless you do it).
