I worked on an hourly project and I finished my job. My client, after not responding for weeks, finally got back to me and said that she paused the contract until we resume work on it.
My client said that she thought about it a lot but it's not the direction she wants to go in for now. If she needs something else, she wants to get in touch again.
What should I do now?
Make sure to stop working on this contract and continue only after you can see that the contract has been resumed. It is always good to communicate and politely explain everything to your client to avoid any misunderstanding. You can discuss the terms of further engagement on the contract and attempt to resolve the situation amicably.
