How to Get Started.
After you use the free quote form to reach me (or contact me another way), I will email you to discuss some of the basics about your project. To give you a fair and accurate quote, I need to understand what you are trying to accomplish, how much writing is involved, and the complexity of the project. Once I have a good idea of what you are looking for, I will give you a price.
If you like my price, I will send you a proposal/work agreement, which will include all pricing, project details, timeframe, deposit, etc. You accept the proposal, pay the deposit, and we’re in business. I will then send you a custom questionnaire so we can get the general details on your business and your project.
You will be given a start week for your project, and an estimated time until completion. For me, deadlines are sacrosanct — I don’t think I have ever missed one! So, once you have a completion date, it’s pretty safe to assume that you will receive your project by that date.
Once I finish your project (most assignments take one to three weeks to finish), I’ll give it to you and wait for your comments. In most cases, my first draft is exactly what you are looking for. Sometimes, one or more revisions might be necessary until we have it “just right.” A minor revision is sometimes a necessary part of the writing process.
Getting Your Project Scheduled
During most months, I am typically booked one to three weeks ahead. (Be leery of any writers that can handle your project right away.) For standard press releases, I am usually able to schedule those within work periods with more complex projects. My goal is to meet any special deadlines you might have for events or other activities that are especially time-sensitive. If you have a pressing deadline to me, let’s talk about it. I try to be flexible!
