Stability Syndrome

There is a very dangerous moment in life of every academic writer. It comes right after the success, when you have already developed a strong connection with several qualitative custom writing services or got yourself reliable clients, who provide you with orders regularly. It’s a moment of a sudden relaxation and silly arrogance, which come upon you unexpectedly and break every business connection you have. I have experienced a light version of this disaster several years which, fortunately, was pointed out by one of my most favorite customers and stopped before it was too late to save my reputation. I like to call this phenomenon “stability syndrome”.
So, here are 3 alarming signs of you allowing yourself too much:

- Late order delivery

 At first it’s just once and not so late. You promise that will never happen again and the client who doesn’t want to lose a good writer because of one small failure readily forgives you. If it happens for the second time and reaction from the client is the same, a feeling of relaxation gets all over you. You think: “That will do. After all, I am a damn good writer!”. Not too good to get rid of, mind you.

- Skiving
Several grammar mistakes here, a piece of a copy-pasted material there. Long-time customers trust you and have already stopped checking the orders for plagiarism. Well, if they find out about you being a sloven, you will not only lose their trust, but all of their orders as well. When it comes to downloading bad quality texts to custom writing services – well, you’ll get kicked out soon enough.

- Disregard towards precise directions

There was one occasion when the client praised you for being creative and now you just ignore most of his suggestions. You know everything better, you are the writer capable of creating a proper writing assignment, after all. Perhaps this is all true, but don’t forget an old saying – the customer is always right. He has a reason for giving you specific directions, and creativity has nothing to do with not following them.

Pay attention, avoid mistakes – and you will defeat the “stability syndrome” once and for all!

PS. Have you experienced the stability syndrome? How did you manage to recover?
