How much do I cost?

I'm looking for some ground rules. People here have been really helpful and so I naturally turn to you again.

I've been approached by a poet who wants to work on an impressionist underground piece on weekends. He's ready to spend a year on it. He had talked to me before after seeing a film I did and I just said $100/day. I've never been for hire before so I don't know. He now says that that was ridicously low and he won't hold me to it. This guy's good! And makes very good bucks but I don't want to either low ball or be outrageous.

Does one charge by the day, by the project, by the hour.

This is NYC /NJ.

What and how are people charging these days for creative collaborative projects?

If you've got your own rig, think how much it would be to rent that per day.

But for an extended discussion, check out this thread: "How much should I charge?"
