The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I went through the archives and didn't find much on this. I have done
one project for a company and they were very pleased. So pleased, that
they would prefer I become an employee (not) or put me on a retainer to
contract, thereby locking in some of my availability.
1. Can I retain independent contractor status if on a retainer?
2. Any words of advice for structuring an agreement where they are
paying for X hours/month and how I defining the project(s) that would
fit that criteria? I am very concerned about being taken advantage. I
can easily see how they could just keep throwing stuff at me.
