I’m wondering what writers have considered to be an acceptable amount of edits in a revision request. I was asked to write a chapter for a client, provided extensive notes, and quickly completed the chapter that was requested. I fulfilled word count and hit the plot points that were asked be included.
For a revision, the client provided a very extensive list of edits requested, from style to word choice to plot choices that were not included in the notes. I understand if I write with inconsistencies or other issues that I should revise those. But, how much editing that includes style and minor plot details and dialogue should I give? I’m worried that this gig is taking more time from than I would like, but I don’t want to leave a client unhappy.
