My life as a poet...

"The Stranger On The Dock"
By Cathy Beasley

The wind blows through my hair
I breath in and slowly exhale
My fingers trace the rim of my now empty glass
I feel fulfilled in a way, and yet am missing something dear.

I take notice to the gentleman staring at me from afar,
Does he know something about me, or know me?
I seem to know him but only by spirit.
Is he too traveling to find that something in life?

The stranger gets up and walks towards me.
My heart begins to leap as he now stands near.
He now leans over and whispers softly in my direction,
“I know what you did.”

Freelance Writing Jobs: Constant Content

So in my never-ending quest to find more places where one can earn some cash while writing, I have stumbled across Constant-Content.com. They claim that the writers can set their own prices to ensure that they are not getting cheated out of what they deserve. When thinking about it, this really does seem like a great idea, but there is also that little problem of waiting around until anyone decides to buy it. I suppose if you wait long enough, eventually someone will, but then again, maybe not.

I just signed up with Constant-Content yesterday and am still awaiting my results. It is free to register and I have already submitted three articles that are awaiting a review.

They do offer a great little section of requested articles which seems like a great way to sell quickly (we shall see). The downside though, is that they do charge a commission of 35% of every article sold, which isn't bad to begin with, but it could prove to be annoying down the line.

But again, we shall see. I still write for Associated Content which is good to always buy pretty much anything and everything, although I have noticed that their prices have been going down significantly from when I first started writing with them.

It is a hard time right now for us fellow writers. Hopefully in a few months things will be better for us. But, until then I will try and share any new writing tips I can with you all.

Best of luck to all my fellow writers! =)

GUESS Tribal E/W Satchel Review

Handbags are like the personal carriers of our souls. They can enhance our personalities and are an extension of our true selves. Which is why choosing the proper bag is so very important.

The GUESS Tribal E/W Satchel is a great throwback to the Italian bags we all know and love. GUESS has always been able to create a great balance between ultra glamorous and staying casual, which is again true for this great handbag. The alligator print gives that exotic dressy feel, while also being something you could sling around your shoulder for everyday use.

The size of this retro-styled classic is large enough to store all of our essentials for the day, while also being small enough where not lose precious time while trying to aimlessly dig for those things we need. To continue with the function tone, the straps are thicker then most, creating a sure not to slip off the shoulder aspect.

For a wear with anything colored satchel, with sturdy makings, and a chic look, this GUESS bag will surely not disappoint as you strut your stuff each and every glamorous day.

This ultra conventional GUESS Tribal satchel retails for $88.
