"How much do you charge 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. This 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% up front for all projects. All projects require written approval before beginning work. Payment terms are net 30 days.
