Isn't it amazing. You pull out all the stops to produce and then, that
last invoice remains unpaid.

BTW All it takes is a late payment on any invoice and I immediately stop
working. (Usually due to severe leg or back cramps the first time
around.) If the overdue invoice is not paid in full after a reasonable
time, a final invoice is sent and the entire deal renegotiated. If they
want me to continue, at that point there will be an adjustment of the
payment terms. If they do not want me to continue, I then make a
business decision on whether to sue or not. Anytime I brought a suit, I
have either settled or won payment in full.
