I do not charge by the hour.
I do not charge per word.
The right words in the right hands can make all the difference in the world. We know when somethings sounds good in our ears, we recognize when something is worth memorizing, and can recount worthwhile lines and passages.
I don’t write nouns, adjectives, and paragraphs. I write music.
When I write for you, I create a version of you made up of ink and paper. The act of writing stirs the soul into a blissful expression of the fantastic, I believe that reading it should illicit the same reaction.
That is why I do not charge by the hour. The perfect piece can be written on the back of an envelope on the way to Gettysburg, or undergo hundreds of revisions while traveling Spain, unpublished for decades.
I charge what I believe the final work is worth. I work until my piece is perfect, and whether that takes five minutes or two years the price remains the same.
