How much should I charge for this freelance writing gig?
A small book publisher has offered me a job writing roughly 100 humorous, high-concept captions for a book of illustrations. There's no clear category for this kind of work in the Writer's Market. They've asked me for my rate. Should I base it on magazine per-word rates? Halp!

I've been asked to design a t-shirt for a well-known band on a major label, but I don't know what the going rate is for the work. I saw this question, but I'm not fresh out of school, and that's a question about bulk work, which this will not be. I'm open to charging a flat-rate or my hourly, but am unclear which is appropriate in this situation. [more inside]

I'm looking at taking on a freelance consulting project for a nonprofit in the SF Bay Area that involves creating web interfaces to a SQL Server backend. This would be my first non-voluntary (i.e., >$0) freelance project. What rate should I ask for? [more inside]
