"You’re an independent editor. That means you’re a professional running a business.
But you may not be a professional at running a business. You keep hearing that you should have a written contract with every client, but you don’t have a good idea of what that contract should have in it, so you let it slide and hope you don’t get burned.

The Paper It’s Written On focuses on your specific needs, particularly when you are working with individual authors.
