Mostly over 10,000 Sep 6, 2010

It varies, but the backbone of my business is long jobs, often up to 50,000. While they give me a little flexibility, I have to budget my time and can't afford to get behind. So they are always hanging over me. I envy you guys!

It varies too much Sep 7, 2010

From 2 (two) to 80K.

If you go by simple number of individual texts, then less than 2000 on average.

However, I get a lot of small, technical texts and summaries that are bundled, which means that there are generally 8-10K total words per project.

And I got a book! project
but that's pretty unusual...
