Dear Wise Techwhirlers,

I have just received an offer from a software company to do contract
work which is expressed in a rate per page and a specification of
a 5-6 page expected production per day.

I have not worked for this company before. But expect to work
on-site one or two days a week and do a substantial part of the work
at home. I have seven months prior experience as a technical writer.

I am concerned that the time I spend learning the company's software,
communicating with developers, attending meetings, doing planning
tasks, etc. (even learning the company's preferred documentation
tools. However, possibly that is another matter.) will not be

I would appreciate any guidance in how to politely respond to
this offer. What questions should I be asking? What have I forgot to
consider? Please respond off list.

Thanks for any assistance you can give.

Ellen Gorlow
