Dances with Words
Consider yourself worthy of the pay. Creative types often think it is enough just to have someone want their work. Before you put the work in the mail or on the Internet Trolly sit down and do the math right there and then.  Basic calculators with do the numbers.  A  nicely  designed letterhead is a work of art it is a part of your writing. Make the bill something you are also proud to present. It is said that the way we treat others is the way we feel about ourselves. If you aren't expecting pay you need to have a talk with yourself. You are worth more than thousands of writers who never sell. I say go for it right up front.

Why not treat invoices like I treat royalties. Like QUARKS. We hear a great deal about 'em and we know they exist, but somehow I never see 'em. he he.

Actually, set up a standard Invoice form in Word or Excel (I think Excel is better), and then boilerplate it. If your work is electronic and for the web, set up a PayPal account and have clients pay you that way. Easiest for both parties and an excellent way to track payments for Uncle Sam.
