For fixed-price writing, is there a good rule-of-thumb for reasonable pay-per-word for a beginner?

Save yourself the headache. Stick to hourly.

 

But if you want to risk it, make sure they escrow 100% no excuse so if things go south you can fight for all money rather than a portion (usually, they try to escrow 50%)

I actually prefer fixed prices simply because I don't want a client to feel
like I'm taking too long (I can be a bit of a perfectionist). I haven't
had any problems with fixed-price contracts so far - everyone has escrowed
the full amount upfront and paid 100% upon completion.

Then I'm not sure what you're asking.
