So here's the thing. I got inspired this week to look for a job as a copywriter, or in essence, a job which you make things more interesting through the written word. So I came across one specific job, and I'm applying for it. (The great thing about writing jobs, is that it can be done from anywhere...even from home, while sitting in your cozy jammies with your bowl of oatmeal cradled in your lap as your one-year old scales the kitchen table looking for any forgotten cups of milk to toss overboard.)
Here's where I need your help! The job application requires a few writing samples. Those of you who have been with me for a while, have read through the different stories that I've posted. Stories from my daily life...stories of my childhood...heartfelt posts regarding Kimble...
I have some contenders. What do you think about these stories?
The Jacketless Hood
A Most Disgusting Story
The Perverted Math Teacher (Too risque?)
The Stalker Mailman
The Tale of the Bike and the Scooter
Look Ma! No Hands!
Stupid things I did as a kid
A Play-by-Play of my day
Signs of Pregnancy
Looking back on the last two years (my husband's vote)
Are any of those stories worthy of a "writing sample"? Which ones were the best? Whether it made you laugh or cry or touched your heart....do any come to mind that I should submit in conjunction with my resume?
Just as another side note, the company I'm applying for is family oriented. They actually want someone who has kids, so they can add that experience when writing.
Please let me know!! I plan on applying for the job tomorrow.
Thanks for your help!!
