Passion, I don’t want to mix into your business but if this person wasn’t going to pay you and you say it’s hard work… then it could’ve been a trap! There’s nothing easier than getting a writer to work and do all the “dirty” job and then when it’s done she disappears into cyberspace without paying you! Yup, it has happened! So make sure that this person will pay you! Did you send her a sample of pieces you edited before? That’s the safest way. She can say whether she finds you good enough and if you are good enough (like you said you are), then you are good enough to get paid. And don’t be shy to charge enough money so you feel that all these hours of work were worth-while for you. It doesn’t matter whether you are professional or not. Doing a good job is enough. I am sure your mother means it well, but she is not doing all the work after all. So you charge the way you feel is enough so you won’t think after that it was actually a waste of time.
Hope that helps!
