My fellow writers and ghostwriters! Do you provide samples of your work or do you leave it up to the buyer’s discretion?
I initially had a few samples listed on my gig’s page and I also provided samples upon request, however, I decided to remove them after hearing some not so positive things from other writers on this site (they’ve had their work stolen, been taken advantage of, etc.) when it comes to posting samples. So my question is, should I or shouldn’t I?
As a writer, I’m skittish, but I know if I was a buyer looking to hire a writer, I would want to see a sample first. I suppose my real question is, do buyers have the right to expect to receive samples of a writer’s work first before they commit to hiring? Or should writer’s exercise extreme caution when they are asked to produce work before they have been paid? Thoughts?
