"If I don't earn your 5* review, I don't earn - won't accept - your fee. I do not miss deadlines".
Please ignore the hourly rate. I work on a fixed fee basis, but had to satisfy the Guru robots. All finalized projects are submitted for client review & approval BEFORE any contract or billing. All the time invested in research, unlimited consultations, (rarely needed or requested) revisions, planning, outlining drafting, re-writes, re-re-writes & 3x proofreading is on me.
I'm not cheap, but I am pretty easy ... and just that confident.
Links to my portfolio, publications and ratings over the past 40 years are readily available @ your request. (e.g., https://www.upwork.com/fl/writer )
I've averaged well over 500 hours per year as a part-time freelancer throughout the past 40 years. As this recent decade nears its end, I've succeeded in making that number something-in-excess of 2,500 hours annually. My clientele is worldwide. Time zones and "office hours" are irrelevant. By appointment, I'm available 24/7/365.
Yep, my policy is unique and obviously requires that I be as selective as any client is. I do not accept a job unless I'm 100% confident in its success.
For every hour I spend on composition, there are at least 2 to 3 more hours invested in the planning, research, outlines, drafts, re-writes, re-re-writes, edits, and (3x) proofreadings that quality requires. Please allow up to 5 or 7 days for most articles up to 1500 words.
My publications span Research, Journalism, Technical & Academic papers ... Speeches, Op-Ed articles, "effective" Press Releases (actually picked up, distributed and developed as news stories by the media) ... Advertising copy, Business / Legal correspondence, Magazine / Newspaper columns, Website content & Blogs - several Literary projects (Ghostwriter) - even a Cartoon series ... all with a touch of humor and irreverence as appropriate.
(I tried to enter "Poker", "Blackjack", "Hearts", "Gin (rummy)", "Craps" and "Sports Betting" in the skills window below, but they were all "unrecognized".)
