Nutty Freelance Writing Clients #6

For some reason, it seems that ever since the release of  "50 Shades of Grey" that some freelance sites have been inundated with requests from potential clients to write erotic fiction.  This is one of them, and even in its own world it's odder than a lion trying to make love to a squirrel.

You gotta love it when people use legal sounding terms to outline the terms of an agreement to write a smut book.  Now, the part that particularly gets me is where the client outlines that the project is personal and is for them and their significant other.  How the hell is it personal if you have somebody else do it for you?  And at twenty five thousand words, they are edging dangerously close to being what seems to be the market price for a freelance job online.  Now, the client for some reason needs the project done before the first of January.  Great, just in time for the holidays.  Nothing says intensely personal like I paid somebody else to do it.
