    Wiw do I hate getting worked over for a sample scam.
    I answered an ad on Craig's list to summarize a couple of book chapters. I realize now this was just a way of getting someone to write a better book for him.
    The quality of the source material was awful. I am pretty sure some guy hanging around his rec room wrote it between episodes of Miami vice. I knew something was wrong when he said it was an audition.

    I hate that sample business. I refuse to do it, or I try to get them to pay in advance.
