Estimating Question for Freelancers
I'm currently reading Hackos' book Managing Your Documentation Projects and have some questions related to freelancing. She recommends both an information plan and a project plan before you really have a cost estimate. These plans take a good-sized chunk of the project time. If you are bidding on a per-project basis, how do you somewhat accurately estimate the cost up front, particularly if you have only a small database of projects of your own to draw from?
Any perspectives you can give will be appreciated.
