I'm completing my first independent tech-writing
assignment for a company I used to work for and,
frankly, I know that they are very slow about paying
bills.  Our agreement calls for half-payment upon
delivery of the draft (Net 30), and the other half
after incorporating their desired changes.
My question is, should I deliver my draft simply in
Word format, which is what I wrote in, or in some
format which is protected from editing. My thinking
is to allow them to review the document in, say, PDF
format, while I keep the editable version as
protection until I receive payment. If I turn over my
editable docs, then I lose any leverage.
