Painfully funny.Just had a thought/question: what is the difference between writing a proposal and writing a contract *if the client doesn't sign it*...? In other words, you could put together your contract vs. your proposal and the client could *still* not sign it. There is simply no way to ensure that if you write up a contract, the client will actually sign it, even if they say they will. Granted many will, if you actually say 'yes, I'll write this up IF you'll sign it'... but some could (and I will wager will) balk at the last minute. Any thoughts there? Have you ever had this happen to you?
