I'm starting to wish I hadn't written anything about Apartment Living because it's become something of a headache. I'm going to clarify the situation for anybody interested.

I worked as a freelance writer for Apartment Living and Education Living for several years. Between October 2008 and April 2009 I wrote eight articles for the magazines. I sent an invoice for seven of these articles (I didn't realise there were actually eight stories) and was eventually paid for six of them in June this year.

A seventh article was published in April 2009 and I had not been paid for it. At the time I was living outside of Thailand and I didn't realise it had been published. I assumed I would be paid once the article was used and that it was not included in the July payment because it was still pending. When I found out the article had been used, I asked for payment. This is the payment I haven't received and was trying to get.

To confuse the issue, I was looking through the list of stories used in the issues between the aforementioned dates and I saw that there was another article in the April issue that I hadn't been paid for and had actually forgotten I had written.

I was paid for the other six articles, but there are two I have not been paid for and it was my experience trying to get payment for the first of the two that I took issue to because I was told I wouldn't be paid for it.

That's as black and white as I can make it.
