a.k.a. "the fine print"
"What is your going rate to write a ______ ?"
Your investment for a given writing project is a simple fixed fee, determined by the time, effort and “creative headspace” required to complete the work.
A fixed fee eliminates any surprises and helps you with budgeting.
First, I’ll prepare a written estimate for you.
The estimate includes time for all meetings, phone interviews, research, initial outlines, revisions, and ongoing project coordination.
Sometimes I’ll quote a range, and the final fee will fall somewhere within the quoted range (depending on the work involved).
In rare instances, a hourly rate may be billed — but only when a project’s scope changes quite a bit.
Please send 50% payment up front for all projects. All projects require written approval before beginning work. Payment terms are net 30 days.
Rush requests incur an additional fee of at least 25% of the total project cost for deadlines of 48 hours or less.
For jobs assigned on Thursday / Friday and due on Monday / Tuesday (weekend work), please treat it as a rush request and add an additional 25% to the total fee.
