During my brief publishing stint, I regularly wrote contracts that arranged
to pay freelancers for the portion of the work they completed in case the
project died before completion. Perhaps you could work out something
similar in your contracts, based either on work completed or time. For
example, if a job were to last six months, and it was cancelled after four
months, such a contract would pay you two-thirds the agreed rate.
