I’m mainly a content writer, but sometimes I also have buyers asking to rewrite something they already have. In particular, I have a couple of clients who ask me to rewrite the same piece in 3 or 4 different ways.
Now, of course if I rewrite 1000 words in 3 different ways, they pay me for 3000 words like it would be for 3 different articles.
However, I noticed that I have a harder time rewriting the same thing a second, third or fourth time, because since my buyer want a 100% original article that still keeps the same meaning, structure, names and places, sometimes I just run out of ways or synonyms and I break my brain to come up with something new.
Lately I’ve been wondering: would it be right to charge an extra when I have to rewrite the same thing in more than one way?
I’m not sure it would be the right thing to do because I’m still working on the same piece and I guess the buyer thinks it should be easier, but when I’m struggling I happen to think ‘ah, this is really not worth the time I spend on it’. Still, I’m unsure and I want to seek the opinion of people who have more experience than me in rewriting content.
I hope this doesn’t sound like a stupid topic and if it is, I apologize. I would gladly accept advice though
