What’s your process like when coming up with scripts? So far in my career I’ve done mostly non-traditional work and always freak out a bit when I’m put on briefs that involve videos because of my lack of experience. Do you focus on the idea first, write it up and then figure out all the details in script form? Do you jump straight to scripts and finesse as you go? What works for you?

Freelance Copywriters: Do you charge by the word, hr, project or do you use a day rate? I stay away from per word projects. I typically charge clients by project, but agencies usually ask me for an hourly rate. Lately, I have been wondering if I should use a day rate for projects though. For example, my last client needed a quick turnaround time for multiple campaign deliverables. They had me booked solid and busy for 2 weeks. Do you use a day rate? How is it structured? When do you use it?
I started a great job because my now AD wanted a partner. He found me through an award platform and I was hired immediately. But after working together, I realise we are too different. Is this common?
