I write up to 10 articles per month for one of my clients. Our initial agreement was crystal clear regarding word count and pay rate. After the first month, things were great, and my client was pleased with my work, so she doubled my work load. The problem is, she wants me to write twice the number of articles for half the money. I told her (nicely) that she can't expect me to do twice the work for half the money but I am open to negotiating. Unfortunately, she said she doesn't have the money in her budget and that I can move forward and accept the assignments, or she will find someone else. WTF right? FYI, the articles are for a major online publisher. I am a little freaked out by my client's expectations. I can't afford to pass on the work, but I am not comfortable with working harder for less money. Ugh!
