I dislike tracked hourly time, but when I have trusted a client, I have worked hourly projects that are manual. However, your increasingly acid comments are not only incomprehensible, but IMO the most "viperish" on this thread. Everyone has their own preferred way of working - accept it. Do what's good for you and get over Upwork's tracking system. You are not obliged to use it.

Well, Nichola... I just wrote an awesomely sarcastic response to this. After posting, I realized it was just more viper-on-viper nonsense, and deleted it.
Maybe its in your e-mail inbox, but it won't be public.
If it's not sitting in your inbox and is in fact lost to cyberspace.... Just know: it was sssooOOOoooo good.
Tim, I'm a writer and use fixed price almost exclusively. Both on and off Upwork, I charge on a per-piece basis with a word count range rather than per word. It works perfectly with the milestone system, and eliminates the need to count up by pennies and any inclination the client might have to try to cut costs by cutting word count or perception that the freelancer might be inflating for money.
The range increases as the count increases. For instance, 600-800 words is one price bracket, and 2,500-3,000 is another.
