I was hired by a client to help with branding, social media, etc. It was an hourly contract.
I told her I would finish the website in 2 weeks and it was, but she continually asked me to make changes to it because she didn't like it. I made every change she asked me to. Then one day, she told me she wanted it "done" in less than 24 hours so she could present it for critique at a branding class she was in. (It was already done, all the images and content were on it, etc). I worked 5 hours that day making all the changes she wanted because she couldn't decide on a header image.
The next day she fired me because I wasn't working on her stuff enough. I told her I was sorry and hoped she could find someone to work on her website the way she wanted.
She is now threatening to dispute my work because she is saying I didn't get it done. (I did.) I tracked all my hours thru Upwork desktop program. I have messages where she is asking me to change the header images constantly and make changes to the completed website.
What am I supposed to do? I feel like I should be paid for the time I spent getting the website up and running, making the million changes she wanted, working on the header in Photoshop, etc. I just don't know what I am supposed to do or if I should even be communicating with her?
