Could you explain this a little better. I don't think competing writers can
write any faster than I do, but I haven't figured out how to justify charging
upwards of $100/hour. :-) ...RM
What is there to justify? We all charge (no matter what the profession)
whatever is acceptable in the marketplace. If the market accepts $100/hr,
then you can justify it. Seems like simple economics to me.
