#WriteTuesday – Weekend Recharging

I don’t know what it was, but last week was a good but long week.  So by the time Friday rolled around, I was exhausted.  I decided to take it easy on Saturday, and power through a whole bunch of emails that I had stockpiled (mostly newsletters) while alternately checking on my cat outside (Merlin spent most of the afternoon in the backyard).  So that was a really good day.  And I’m now feeling ready to tackle the new week!

Then a friend of mine contacted me over the weekend asking if I was willing to critique (and possibly edit) a book he is working on.  He asked what my professional rate is.  I’ve never been asked to provide a professional critique before and had no idea what to charge. Thankfully I have a copy of an older Writer’s Market (2015), which has their handy “What Should I Charge” chart.  Using that as a guideline, I was able to come up with a price we both agreed was fair.

Oh, and I also came across some printables from Tickled Think.  I picked up their blog planning one and their dream plan act productivity planner; I’m hoping those will help me out with Sustainably North (and just planning for the future in general; I kind of feel like I’m drifting at the moment without a clear plan).  I’m hoping to work on those this coming week. 🙂

So how’s your week been?  Have you ever struggled with pricing for your writing (and how have you settled on a price)?
