I’m Not Funny
Had a short article request today-
"Create a funny, short review for this Trinitite sample available at Amazon. Expert native English writers only. Otherwise, you risk being rejected! The review can be vulgar or crude. I raised the price on this article because I’d like it to be 200 words, please."
So I typed up a quick piece and submitted it. It was rejected with this comment:
"Sorry, just not very funny. :/ “
This is the article I submitted (I always post my rejected articles so people don’t attempt to steal them without paying me.)
You know what annoys me?
When a client says that something wouldn’t be found in a professional article.
"You should take that out, because it would never be in a professional article."
Excuse me? Who’s the professional writer? Me or you. If you could write you would have done it yourself eh? If you don’t want something included in an article, fine I will take it out, but don’t tell me what would or wouldn’t be found in a writing style.
Birthdays though fun, tend to leave a mess that doesn’t bring a smile to your face. And throwing it all away is like setting a pile of cash on fire and yelling “Happy Birthday!” Use these tips for your birthday scraps to bring that smile back.
