AWAI Writing Challenge:
What Does “The Writer’s Life” Mean to You?

This week’s topic: Tell us in 1,000 words or less what “the writer’s life” means to you.

If you’re already living it … tell us how your life has changed since becoming a copywriter … your new daily routine (or lack of routine) … the new freedom you enjoy to travel or work on your favorite hobby … the memories created from being able to do more with your kids … the time saved by not having to commute to an office every day … how it feels to not have to answer to a boss … and so on. We want to hear it all!

If you’re not quite there yet … tell us what your hopes and dreams are … really visualize what it will be like to achieve your copywriting goals … how your life will be improved for the better. Paint a picture of exactly what living “the writer’s life” will mean to you.

Send your essay to me at with “The Writer’s Life” in the subject line.

One winner will be selected from all entries received. Winner will get a $50 gift certificate to AWAI’s eBookstore and will have his or her essay published on the AWAI website.

Deadline for this week’s challenge: May 5, 2009

The winner will be announced in next week’s issue of Inside AWAI.

Your next $5,000-a-month retainer …

The copywriting world is going through a massive shift.

And it’s created a major and urgent opportunity for writers (this could be bigger than web writing was back in the early 2000s!).

With this skill, you could walk in to practically any business. Tell them what you do. Then walk out with a check for $5,000 for the month (and every month after that).

That’s because practically every company on earth wants “in.”

But they need your writing skills to do it.

Get the full scoop here.
