Well that would certainly make things easier if the company in question
already had their own contract.

Here's a related question: are there any contract clauses to beware of or
to try to insist on? Any horror stories of contracts that wound up biting
someone on the butt? For example, a company trying to claim writing you
did outside of their billed hours, because the contract said that all
writing done during the term of employment would be theirs.

Thanks again!
