Last night I was offered the assignment of writing a horror/crime story based on a true crime in Utah.
At first, it looked a dream job for me-until I checked the requirements.
The client posted eight jobs in a year, and only accepted one offer. He has only paid out $15 for work.
The job was a 60,000 word story by the end of the month; he only posted the job three days ago. To achieve his goal, I would be required to write in excess of 35 pages a day, without fail. This is a totally unreasonable offer, especially for only $90.
The average page is between 250 to 300 words in length. I can sometimes squeeze my length to 325,but the norm is taken as 250.
