At least they are getting paid. They could be “asked” to participate as interns, paid nothing, have their work used and sold for profit, and then sent home in tears, penniless and alone. Luckily that never happens, especially to writers, they are too smart for that, way too smart…

As an aside was it correct to use ‘too’ in those instances or should I have used ‘to’ in both cases? Or perhaps ‘too’ in the first and then ‘to’ in the second?

As a second aside should I have written my first aside in the past or present tense? Initially I chose the present tense ‘is it correct’ but then changed it to the past tense ‘was it correct.’ Of course some time had elapsed before I changed it so I suppose that was the correct thing to do. But now what about this second aside? Is it in the correct tense? Was it? Ahhh. Fuck. I hate writing sometimes. lol!
