AWAI Writing Challenge:
What Does "The Writer's Life"
Mean to You in 2010?

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 in 2010 … 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 1,000-word (or less) essay to me at kyeakle@awaionline.com with "The Writer's Life 2010" in the subject line. If you send your submission as an attachment, please include your first and last name on the essay … not just the cover note.

One winner will be selected from all entries received. If it's you, you'll receive a $100 American Express gift card and have your essay published on the AWAI website.

All entrants will be recognized and will be sent a special gift for participating.

Deadline: Jan. 24, 2010

Look for the winning entry in the Jan. 28th 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.
