Hi all, I have close to 5 years experience as a technical writer in the Software development industry. After I conceived, I decided to stay home and raise our child. As a result, I've not been working for close to 3 years now. Am still not keen on getting back to the corporate world with a fulltime job but am interested in doing some kind of writing that will pay atleast our rent. Do any of you out there have any ideas for me to get back to writing?
Any help will be appreciated.


What can I do next?

Have you heard of Scentsy "Authentic Wickless Candle"? Extremely safe w/ no wick, soot, lead, or flame.

Our warmers are heated by a 25-watt light bulb in a 2-piece warmer, our candle bars are made of a soft wax packed full of incredible scents. With a burn time of 60-80 hours per Scentsy bar (and sometimes more), over 80 scents to choose from, a wonderful selection of warmers, plus car candles and room sprays, there's something for everyone.

Consider this: By the middle of May 2008, we sold over 1.5 million worth of warmers, bars, room sprays, and car candles. That's 495% more than during the same time period in May 2007. That's AMAZING! We also added 698 Consultants in this time period. THAT'S 612% MORE THAN WE HAD JOINED DURING THE SAME TIME PERIOD IN MAY 2007! If you are considering a home business, this is a great opportunity for you to get in early with a company that I believe will become a household name! Ask me about MY SPECIAL for anyone interested in BECOMING a Scentsy Consultant in the month of November!

Have a Scent-Sational Day!

Hi P.,

Check with your local newspaper. I know in my town the local newspaper pays writers for weekend events that their full-time employees are to busy to cover. My secretary does it to make extra money for her family, she said they pay by the article. I don't know if it will be enough to cover rent, however maybe it can bring in some extra money to your family and keep you involved at the same time. Good luck and enjoy your baby girl!!
