In case you didn’t know, my name’s Angie. My pen name is Angela McAnderson or Angela Hearts (please do NOT ask for my real name.).
Recently, I’ve been a bit short on cash. AKA I’m broke. However, I’ve been told by many that my writing talents are above average and that I should become an author. Since the author thing is not happening any time soon, I need another way to use my one and only ability for cash. So, I’ll be doing WRITING COMMISSIONS!
I’ll do anything ranging from drabbles to full on stories and even song lyrics. However, I, like all humans, have limits to what I can/cannot or will/will not do. My prices are reasonable, based upon my research about other commission writers’ prices. Ship wise, I’ll do F/F, F/M, or M/M (message me if your pairing does not fit under any of these categories).
I’m also trying out EDITING COMMISSIONS. However, since I’m only trying this out, I will offer a 50% refund at all times during the process of editing and for one week after I have completed the edit. More on that below.
What makes you qualified for commissions?
Well, I’m a straight A student normally, however my grades in English have been no lower than 99% ever since I started middle school (I won’t give out my age, but let’s just say that that time is long gone.). I read the dictionary for fun (I’m only up to D) and, as I said before, I’ve been told by dozens of people that my writing is exquisite. Other than that, you can scroll down a bit to find some of my better works and judge for yourself how good I am. I don’t know if I’ll meet your expectations though!
What are you good and bad at?
- Word usage
- “Poetry-like Writing” (basically using a lot of synonyms and metaphors)
- Mental State Descriptions
- Stories with Deeper, Sadder Undertones
- Magical Descriptions
- Character Descriptions
Not Great at:
- Being Literal
- Describing Real People (i.e. actors, singers, models, famous real life people in general, etc.)
What will you do/ what won’t you do?
I will do pretty much anything except:
- Anything with Religion
- Political Things BASED ON REAL POLITICIANS
- Starvation (I know it’s specific and bizarre, I’m just really uncomfortable with it)
- Anything Offensive, Discriminatory, Biased, Opinionated, or just plain rude
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CAN REJECT ANY COMMISSION THAT I PLEASE, EVEN WITHOUT A REASON. IF I AM UNCOMFORTABLE DOING SOMETHING, PLEASE RESPECT MY LIMITATIONS. I AM ONLY HUMAN AS WELL AS YOU.
Okay, you’ve got my attention. What are your prices?
Thanks for the interest! My prices are simple, really. It all depends on how long you want the commission to be. If your price ends up being an infinite decimal/number or something, I’ll round it downwards. NOTE: My prices are very slightly negotiable, but I will NOT go below $5/ 500. That is my base cost. Also, a down payment of $1 MINIMUM applies to everything EXCEPT DRABBLES and must be paid IMMEDIATELY AFTER ORDERING. Plus, my borders are negotiable (i.e. 2003 words will be rounded down).
NORMAL COMMISSIONS (through PayPal) + MINIMUM $1 DOWN PAYMENT
Drabbles (<1000 words): $5 (base cost)
Short Writing Piece (1000-2000 words): $0.01 per every TWO words ($5-$10)
Normal Writing Piece (2000-5000 words): $0.01 per every ONE word ($20-$50)
Long Writing Piece (5000+ words): $0.03 per every TWO words (1.5 cents a word, $75+)
NORMAL COMMISSIONS (through ) + MINIMUM 100 DOWN PAYMENT
Drabbles (<1000 words): 500 (base cost)
Short Writing Piece (1000-2000 words): 1 per every TWO words ( 500-1000)
Normal Writing Piece (2000-5000 words): 1 per every ONE word ( 2000 - 5000)Long Writing Piece (5000+ words): 3 per every TWO words (1.5 a word, 7500+)
Why does it cost more in than on PayPal?
It’s a lot easier for me to do it in these intervals, believe it or not- not to mention some legal stuff and deviantart terms, etc.
Will you do multi-chaptered commissions?
Yes, however the terms and conditions change a bit. For one, I will not write drabbles for chapters. Also, the $1 down payment applies per chapter. Extra contacts will be needed to discuss more than one chapter.
What all do you ask from us when sending in these commissions?
Oh boy, here comes the fun part.
- Respect my rules and regulations.
- If the character is an OC, I must get permission from the owner to write about them. I will not get back to you until I have a proper response. That being said, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME AN OC IF YOU KNOW THE OWNER WILL NOT SAY YES. It’s a waste of everyone’s time and patience.
- If I respond that I do not know the OC/character you are talking about, DESCRIBE THEM THOROUGHLY. I cannot guarantee a good fic if you don’t fully explain their looks, personality, likes, hobbies, dislikes, etc to me.
- If wanted, I can create my own OCs if you want to avoid these issues.
- Give me a WORD RANGE. Do not give me a specific number of words. Even if I go above your maximum word count, I WILL NOT CHARGE MORE THAN WHAT WE AGREED UPON.
- If you use my work for anything outside of DeviantArt, CREDIT ME.
- DO NOT RESELL NOR REPOST MY WORK (without my permission, that is). Does this even need to be discussed?
- That's about it for now. There's no real "format" or anything that I'd need, I'll just ask you as they come.
Please note that if I need something else from you, I will ask you before I start unless I need it for later on, in which case I will contact you. Please also note that I am really slow and kind of an idiot at times, so I may struggle a bit near the beginning of a work. It's rare, but it may happen. Sorry for the inconvenience. :/
I decided for some reason that I don’t want my commission anymore. What is your refund policy?
I am really not a big fan of refunds, but I’m a flexible person, so I’ll be generous.
IF I HAVE NOT STARTED WRITING YOUR COMMISSION: 95% Refund
IF I HAVE STARTED YOUR COMMISSION A LITTLE BIT: 80% Refund
IF I AM ABOUT HALFWAY DONE WITH YOUR COMMISSION: 50% refund
IF I HAVE FULLY STARTED AND HAVE ALMOST FINISHED YOUR COMMISSIONS: 25% Refund
IF YOUR COMMISSION IS ONLY BEING EDITED/IS COMPLETELY FINISHED: 5% Refund
NOTE: I am NOT going to negotiate refunds. I work just as hard as the next guy, so why should he have a good refund policy while I don’t?
What fandoms are you in/do you know of?
I can and will write ANY FANDOM/CHARACTER SO LONG AS I HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THEM. I'm familiar with most fandoms, but I'll post a list once I can. Please DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK ME ABOUT A FANDOM; CHANCES ARE THAT I'M AT LEAST FAMILIAR WITH YOUR FANDOM, SO DON'T BE SHY!
What type of ships/other stuff can you do?
I will do:
- Canon x Canon
- OC x OC
- Freestyles/ NO RELATIONSHIP
- “Poetry” (message me for more on that)
I will NOT do:
- Reader x Character. This one is negotiable; it’s just that my first-person/second-person writing skills are struggling, so maybe in the future.
- Canon x OC. Just a bit too difficult to write.
- That's about it? Like I said before, I have every right to reject your commission, even without reason. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Okay, what works can you show me to prove that you’re as good as you say you are?
Go to my FEATURED WORKS page or my gallery (on DeviantArt) to see a few works. I will say, however, that I've only been on deviantart for a little while, so many of my works are not on this website. If you want some other works of mine, just shoot me a message and I'll be glad to send you a few links!
Any other notes?
Not really. The most important things to know are my pricing and refund policies. Also, I have right of rejection, I don’t have specific completion times and I do have limits. Oh, and I have the right to post your commission publicly, so if you are uncomfortable with that, then please let me know IMMEDIATELY.
Okay, okay, whatever. What about those editing commissions you were talking about earlier?
Well, I’ve recently begun editing a few friends’ works for school stuff and other minor works, and every time they said I did a great job at it. So, I’m trying out editing for a bit.
Each editing commission will be the SAME PRICE at either $5/hour OR $1/paragraph,- both coming with a $3 down payment- depending on how much you trust my timing skills. (I WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING FOR EDITING COMMISSIONS UNTIL I AM SURE OF WHAT I AM DOING. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.)
So, how will that work?
Well, you’ll send me the work and the down payment first (more on my refunds policy in a moment) through email, and, depending on whether you want my services per hour or per page, I’ll either start the timer OR count the number of starting paragraphs. Then I’ll get to work! No stopping, no lollygagging, nothing! It’ll be finished within the week guaranteed (unless your work is over 7 pages. That’s my limit.)!
You edited my work and it was awful! Can I get a refund?
I give 50% refunds back any time 7 DAYS after I’ve given my edited version to you. (NOTE: 50% includes the work costs ONLY, not the down payment. I’m sorry, but times are tough, so the down payment stays with me.)
I’m sorry, I’ve got to admit, I purposely don’t separate my works into paragraphs when needed to save some money. Will you charge per paragraph you add?
Nope, I’ll just be going on the honesty system for this once since I’m just trying it out. However, if you send me something with NO paragraph separations, then I’ll automatically charge per hour. That’s just a bit too much for me to handle.
Why do you even need this money so bad?
I’ve just been short on money as of late, and times are tough job-wise. There’s also some stuff I need to buy, debts I need to pay, people I need to take care of, etc. And, like most students know, school is a bag of asses to deal with. Overall, some money would really do me some good.
Will you do NSFW commissions?
Yeah, sure, but we'll need to talk about it a bit before I do anything. Just message me if you want more on that.
Will you ever do “classes” or tutorials on how you write?
Um, no? I mean, writing just comes naturally to me, I don’t know what there is to teach, so probably not. Though, I will say that I might give out tips and tricks for writers or a "how did I get to be good at writing" type of thing in the future. However, as of right now, the most likely answer is no to those classes/tutorials.
What’s your payment preference?
PayPal for sure. It’s not that I don’t like , I just like to have actual cash more than those. Honestly, if you try to pay in , I will adamantly push you towards paying with PayPal.
Where can I send other questions/concerns?
I really prefer it if you contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org OR through skype (@angelaheartswuzhere). I’ll also respond if you ask me through DeviantArt. I do additionally have a tumblr, a wattpad account, a kik, a facebook account, and a twitter, though I don’t know why on earth you would want to use that.
