Freelance Writers' Worth Week

While I'm on a short break from blogging, I encourage you to stop by Lori Widmer's blog for Writers' Worth Week. Lori's a year-round advocate for demanding one's worth in this profession, but her efforts this week are particularly tireless. You'll find not only daily posts from her, but also links to guests posts on external sites and to other writers who are participating in this very worthy cause. Definitely plenty to keep you busy until I'm back with my Screw Yous!

EP, you seem to be stuttering - that's the same thing you said on my blog last week.

Methinks I smell a spammer....

I was wondering what the quote was all about. Looks like you might have found my answer.

I might have forcefully suggested this guy was...um...cheap, and he told me things would never go back and he would never have to pay more. Just wanted to brighten your day... He only pays $50 if the original lang is Hindi, he added, but has not trouble finding Americans to do this.

I missed Freelance Writers Worth Week! I gave a client a break on a job because I gave an inaccurate estimate (it took 2-3 hours longer than I anticipated) and I was just being nice. Then he had me do a little more and when I told him what the amount of the invoice was he asked (straight face) "No discount?"

*sigh*

You can't be nice to people anymore!

Rachel, you're right you usually CAN'T be nice to people because the bigger break you offer them, the bigger one they expect! I swallow losses where I estimated incorrectly too, if it's a small project. If it's a big one, as soon as I realize the error of my ways, I go back to the client and quote them a new price with the option of walking. If they choose the walk away, I bill the completed portion at the rate I quoted. I don't think it's fair to punish a client for poor estimation on my part, although I will add that oftentimes that bad estimation is a result of the client not giving me the full picture upfront.
