First, everything’s negotiable. Mostly.

Second, this is a side endeavour for me, so I’m trying to figure it out as I go along. We’ll talk about your project before we agree to terms, because I believe in “Underpromise, Overdeliver.” Also, sometimes I’m just too busy or don’t have the bandwidth, so we need to be on the same page in terms of when you need something done.

But I’ll always keep my word. Unless an eagle steals my laptop or something.

I’m setting the prices the way I did for a couple reasons: I want it to be worth my time, yet affordable, but not so affordable that you’ll casually send me your Masters of the Universe fan-fiction from when you were five years old. If you think the prices are too high, great! Odds are you wouldn’t have found value in my edits, so we saved ourselves needless strain.

Prices may change at any time.

You’ll never pay if I don’t have something to deliver to you.

You can pay by Venmo, PayPal, or domestic check.

And your final question, why am I doing this? I like working with words and would like to capitalize on that even more than I do now.
