SimpleMarkup #25 – Currency Woes

SimpleMarkup 25 Currency Woes

This week’s comic addresses the tactic that editors are confronted with from time to time. You see, while there are many fantastic writers out there who really appreciate editors and what we do, there are others out there who don’t always understand that editors… well, we need to eat.

Let me know if you’ve ever been in Edie’s shoes.
