The Writer’s Twin Lives

Posted on

Writers write when they’re moved to create something. Writers also write to pay the bills.I find it interesting the material the latter will find acceptable whereas, given a choice, the former might be more selective. I was reminded of that today as I accepted my first Rosen Book assignment in over a year. This time I’ll be penning a young adult biography of singer Christina Aguilera. It’s a short assignment, which is good since I can jump in and out. The pay is low since Rosen cut their rates just about in half, since I last wrote for them,.Still, those bills aren’t going to wait for the muse to strike.On the other hand, I was also invited today to pitch to a number of anthologies from editor Danielle Ackley-McPhail and since it’s all original material, that certainly speaks to the creative writer in me.And in both cases, it’s terrific just being asked.

  1. Well, I’ll say this… Unlike Britney, Gwen, Ashley, and the rest of the talentless hacks out there peddling their manufactured pop songs to a tone-deaf public, at least Christina truly has a gifted vocal ability.
