OK writers–here’s a chance to earn a prize–just for telling your own freelancing horror story…

Jake Poinier posted all the info you need to enter at Freelance Writerville II on Ning, but you have to hurry–the entries will only be accepted until midnight on Halloween. Read Jake’s nightmarish story on his blog, and while you are there, have a look around…he has some great stuff on there. One of the few blogs I read…
I have too many to share and not enough time to write them up, but I’ll be checking in to see what horrible story wins the grand prize!

What Do Writing Skills Have To Do With A Halloween Bag?

At first glance you may wonder what this is all about…

I’d just like to remind you that your writing skills can be utilized in a variety of ways. For those of you who don’t know this about me–I create designs that I then screen onto t-shirts and bags in addition to my writing. I created this Halloween design for trick-or-treat bags, and to make them even more marketable, I wrote a list of Halloween Safety Tips to go with it. This enables me to set myself apart from the competition and bring something unique to my design package.

Bottom line is–if you think outside the box, you will find a number of great uses for your writing skills. I was able to interest an ebay store in carrying the bags, and I’m sure the “extra” of having the tips to go with it made a difference in closing the deal.

Is there anything you could be doing with your writing skills that you may not have thought of? Take a step back and look at the things you are involved in…if you can find a way to get the word out about your skill as a writer, or market a product you make, or come up with a creative way to use your talents to get ahead…why not do it?!
