Pay it Forward!

I always tell people that networking is the way to go, and by-crackity, I'm at it again. Deborah Ng, who posts all the freelancing writer jobs (God bless her) in one spot has started a concept called "Pay it Forward" which works like this: I'll plug your blog if you pay it forward by mentioning on your own blog the concept behind pay it forward Tuesday and plugging someone else.

Got it? Get to it! See the links to the right >>>>>>> pay them a visit and leave some nice comments. Then do yourself and see Deb's site:

Look for a blurb each Tuesday, right here at Musings from a Writer.

Jason Walker's Day to Shine!

I just had to put this link on my blog for everyone to see! Jason had an interview with his local TV news station and he got to talk about his book, "Missing My Body". Remember, you can purchase for $8 if you look to the side and click on the dropdown box. Click on this link to watch:

You know, sometimes being a freelance writer/ghostwriter can be stressful looking for the next gig, but then sometimes.....well, sometimes it reminds you why you love to write.

Got a nice surprise over the weekend....I've been establishing a presence over at Writers due to some gentle nudging from a good friend and fellow writer, Debra Gordon. Man, am I glad that I did! I posted a poem I wrote eons ago and a short story as well as my e-books. I've heard nothing but encouragement, praise and a bunch of "atta-girl!'s".

How cool is that? If you're not familiar with it, look over to the side here>>>>>> and click on the black box. Lots and Lots of great writers all wanting to help each other and push the proverbial literary envelope.

Check it out, you won't be sorry. Oh, and visit "Blogginators" listed under groups. You'll be glad you did. Writers are a cool bunch of people, I must say.

I'm Not Your Writer...

I'd never thought I would say those words to anyone, but I did today.
I had a potential client call me and he wanted me to ghost a blog for him. The topic was on HR. He wanted certain things discussed on this blog and was pretty open to most any subject, but it couldn't be negative toward employees or HR people's view of employees. Well, I don't know about any other HR person, but that is what is universal about being in this field. The fact of the matter is, some employees abuse policies (not all, but some) and that is the way it is.

When I asked him for an example of what he wanted....he gave me a ridiculous example as if I were stupid but then when I read his comments from people on his blogs....they had the same comments as I did.....He wanted me to start right away.....

After he asked me repeatedly to do the articles, All I could say was, "I'm not your writer."

To the Blogger Guy:
#1 - Don't patronize me, just tell me what you want or need.

#2 - If you can't do that, I'm not your writer.
