I've been writing for DS since the middle of July. Up until now, I've had little complaints in regards to writing for this company. Writing for DS has provided me with quite a bit of extra cash we desperately seem to need. But these past few weeks the cash flow has been next to nothing.
In September, I have written 9 articles for DS. 7 of those were sent back for a rewrite. I choose not to rewrite 3 of them, had another 3 approved after the rewrite and also my very first rejection.
All of this has made me quite frusterated with the CE's there. I had to send in an appeal for the rejection since it was unfounded. The other rewrites were nitpicky. After lurking on the forums, I've discovered other writers have been having this problem as well. Where they previsously would have gotten the majority of articles approved from the get-go, they are now being onslaughted with a huge amount of rewrites.
Has anyone else been having this problem? Does DS typically go through periods like this where articles are heavily sent back for rewrites, followed by more calmer, normal periods? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
DS is still my primary source of income, but it's starting to become my primary source of frusteration as well.
