Don't Let Bad Clients Get You Down

Hey guys.
I've been a freelance editor for about six years and recently have found it -exceptionally- hard to work on my own projects. But one cold, red-eyed, achy night whilst working at my desk, I stumbled upon a realization. A realization I now share with you.

Anyone else with tips on how to break the post-bad-client-blues?

Of course! Also, I'm planning on sharing it with a bunch more folks in my newsletter this week. Hopefully it drives a few more views for you :)
