See some people have values and wont be held down by the power of the dollar. I say fuck that. A cup of coffee at your local chain coffee store costs and you could try paying it with a set of ideals. Save the values for your non-commercial relationships. Otherwise have a farm and befriend goats.
I need a job. No I am not going to post a video where I have my hair done, make expertly applied and tell you, while wearing my tightest tight bit why I am the best thing since sliced bread in my husky voice. You can tell that I have seen that. I am a copy writer and I am creative. But I am not desperate. I do a good job, I try not to say too much work related stuff because I hate long talking meetings and exchanges of what you think we should do. That is how I roll. I write and write pretty well and for whoever I think can pay me.
Maybe there is something immoral for selling your skills to the highest bidder. Being a reasonably decent novelist, you would think I had some “pure” values. Hardly. I like to say that I am morally grey. I can be bought for the right price assuming that we are talking about the same thing here. I will work and sweat and make you sound like sun rays emanate from your rear end if the price is right. I work fast as well. I did a 815 word advertorial in about two hours. With a headache and the strong desire to turn a stapler into a murder weapon. All things considered, that is pretty fucking amazing.
Its probably the last article I am going to write for that magazine. I could have gone on every single day of my life doing that, slowly going blind and bald from the sheer annoyance from the futility, if the price was moderately right.
So if anyone out there is looking for a half decent copywriter who doesnt like lost of chatter, who plays well with the other animals and growls occasionally to himself I might be the right person.
In the work environment I prefer to be treated like a cactus, watered once a month (Lets call this a pay cheque, But unlike a cactus, less is still less, so more is better for your health.) Left alone and I will do what I am called onto do. Not that Cactus plants do much. But you get the picture.
