@Wrangler
Hi; I can't say I enjoyed reading this one; as I know how much that job meant to you.. It must be disheartening, I'm sorry you didn't get the work.
I love your work, and hope soon you get the break you deserve..
please keep writing your experiences

@mineet
Hey, thanks for the kind words :) it does suck but I want people to be able to learn from my experiences. It was very disheartening, but the only cure is to keep going!

@Wrangler, I second mineet. Your willingness to share your own experiences and perseverance will encourage others who face the same challenges (which really, is virtually every indie artist) and let them know they aren't alone. Thanks for being there!

I always love reading about experiences that are just brutally honest about the reality. Knowing that early will save the wannabe-freelance a lot of surprises, for when they want to do the same, they know what's going to be ahead of them.

Some outsiders may call that discouraging, and that's where the question of personal passion comes in. There are people like me who don't bode well with the standard employer-employee structure and work much better off self-employed. Reading honest experiences help us to predict what we have to do to get there.
