Questions for all listserv TW contractors:

1.) How typical is it for Tech Writer contractors to work to client predetermined time standards, for example: Document one module per day?

2.) I am considering a 6 to 7 month remote-location Tech Writer contractor position having predetermined time standards. Given the below facts, do you see a way in which the assignment can be a win-win situation?

* Estimates are just that - estimates. There are bound to be days (maybe many days) in which over eight hours is required to complete the predetermined standard daily quantity of documentation.

* The client is firm on no pay beyond 40 hours per week.

* I am firm on being payed for each hour worked - no free overtime.

All responses appreciated.
