Whenever someone gives me praise for a job well done, I usually ask them if
I can add their comments to my website. Usually, they are agreeable.
I think the best compliment you can get from a client is when they extend
your contract and give you more work to do.

So sorry. No matter how often I set Verizon webmail to Plain Text, it
switches back to, evidently, the formatting of the last post I responded to.
I am slowly training myself to check the setting every time, but I missed it
this last time.

OK, so, my topic was, do you have file in which you store complimentary
notes on reviews? I do; it's at home, since as a contractor I change
employers so frequently. I look at it when I need reassurance that someone
other than fellow tech writers values what I do.

My favorite item in it is a post-it note that came back to me
unintentionally. An editor (yes, this was at a company that had editors) had
passed my document on to another editor and her note said, "Sorry this is
such a rush; the upside is that she's the best of the bunch." In the
context, it was clear that "she" referred to me.

Anyway, I just got a very nice "Brava" from a reviewer.

Do you have a "Well Done" file or something similar? What do you have in it?
Does it improve your morale?
