In this contest we'd like you to show us the quality of your work. Consider this as a job interview. If you pass, you don't only get the money for this contest, you get a job for years!

(intelligent, sophisticated, civilised, etc.. ) A SOLID kinkiness won't harm :) 3, Funny, funny, funny (intellectual fun, not dumb) Article topics: 1, Entertainment: - Write an entertaining article about the following video: http://youtu.be/VncOaC24CsE 2, Service Teaser: - Write a teaser about the web cam girl listed under the following link. This should motivate people to go on a private chat with this girl, or other girls from this provider, of course the main focus is on the girl. ( you can find some additional info below the video, under the details menu tab) http://jasmin.com/hu/chat/BrendaOdin 3, Product teaser - Write a teaser on the product listed under the following url. This should motivate people to buy this product. http://www.fleshlight-international.eu/classics/ All 3 articles should be around 120 characters, they should be SEO friendly. This site is focused on keywords related to teens, live chat, live jasmin (chat provider), web cam, redheads, tattoos, hot girls, models, etc..

    Hi,My name is Alex, and I saw really good comments on your work. I&quot;d need someone to write a short article / day for our adult websites. I attached a sample article, the topics would be similar. We&quot;d like the writer to pick up a personality / site. The attached article was created for our www.livejasminbabes.net website, and the personality related is a young, energetic lesbian called Amy. She likes the girls just like the boys, but can give a different approach being a lesbian. Could you / would you be open to create such articles for us on a daily basis. First we&quot;d be starting with 1 article / day, and we&quot;d be pushing it up to 4 articles / day ( 1 / site and we have 4 sites ). How much time would it take for you to create such an article? How much would you be asking in terms of payment for 30 such articles / month, and how much would it cost later when its 120 articles / month. Please note that quality is important at every single article. Quality can&quot;t go lower because of the quantity. This section of the website would be dedicated to adult entertainment, we&quot;ll show them unique / interesting / funny articles, sometimes write about a product / service to generate income, and we will be giving you some keywords / site for the search engines, and would ask you to incorporate those words and synonyms ( as google punishes word repeating, it treats it as spamming ). Regards,Alex

    My project is a book of some 860 pages (a behemoth, I know). A part time poet/writer and full time father&quot;s magnum opus.It is the collected work of 15 years or so of writing poetry, and includes a couple of essays.Written originally for my son, it has sort of taken on a life of its own, and is in need of finalpolishing and refinement. It has been a serious hobby and endeavor, and I wish it treated assuch.I eventually seek to publish it through traditional means or to post it online for sale. The poetry, some 630 pages or so, is all double spaced. The two essays, are approximately225 or so pages combined, and are single spaced. I mostly need light proofreading and &quot;suggested edits&quot;to the poetry, heavy on the punctuation and grammer and useage, and lower on telling me how to write it, or which words to use. The two essays are a completely different animal. It has been years,years since I was in school, and they most likely need a fair bit heavier hand on the editing. Here is wherecontent editing suggestions and organizational editing suggestions will likely come into play.Editors of large book works and of poetry in particular will have a leg up in this competition.I will judge, not just on price, but on whom I think will be the best overall fit for what I consider a serious life&quot;s work...Thank you for your time and consideration...- Wes
