Asking for Contract Changes

In previous posts I have talked extensively about the need for a freelance writing contract in particular situations. While this will always hold true, you need to make sure that the contract is mutually beneficial. In other words, do not sign something that is geared towards making the other party happy but does not do much for you. If you do, you will have to follow the contract, and will have no recourse if something goes wrong.

It is not uncommon to ask a client to make changes before signing a contract. In fact, many in the industry have come to expect this. You will find that most contracts within the freelance writing industry are pretty standard, but of course, there are always those details that will change from time to time.

Even if most freelance writing contracts look the same, you still want to read every word closely before signing on the dotted line. You may find that you need to ask for a change to the due date, payment amount, or delivery method; and that is only the tip of the iceberg.

Remember, do not sign a contract that doesn’t suit your needs just because you want to work on the project. Your client will probably be more than willing to change the wording and details to suit your needs as well as theirs. And if they do not want to make any adjustments, you are probably better off without them. The bottom line: a contract is meant to protect both parties.
