The other thread was getting too long so I decided to start a new one.
Now, I usually just gloss past any cheap jobs but this one was just too bad to ignore. I was tempted to apply just to tell him he's an idiot but I restrained myself. I'm used to seeing the editing jobs where the client wants 50,000 words edited for $10.00 but this client will only pay for words that you change regardless of how long the document is and only if he accepts the changes
"I'll pay you 1 cent for every word you edit in or take out of the story AND ONLY if I keep your changes when I review you story with a Microsoft Office Compare.
Your job will be to take the 2000-5000 word story I send you: add and also take away pieces you do not think add value to the story.
If you send me back a a document and I keep only one or two words, I WILL only pay you the 1 cent, 2 cents. But I am pretty generous on what is acceptable.
I've got about 50,000 more words til the book is complete, so there is much potential to make money.
You will have ONE WEEK from when I open the contract with you, if you do not complete it within that time frame, I will close the contract.
Also, I will retain all rights to the work."
I'm used to seeing cheap editing jobs here but this is the first time I've seen someone only willing to pay for words that get changed (and accepted)
The really sad thing is that there are already three applicants.
