Writer Level Up!

Ok. This is really cool. I am now freelancing for Amazon.com on product descriptions and such. Some of my stuff is already live. This month I went through and learned how to do what needed to be done to write up various types of product descriptions from the 100 word splats to the 800 word "A+" pages and everything in-between. There are a lot of fiddly detail bits to remember. But I seem to have taken to it quite well. Enough to get through a rush job that tested out my memory and quick editing skills with almost no mistakes at all. Now, I've turned in my first invoice and, if everything goes right, I should get paid on the first of September. That is really awesome. I will be poking my editor for more work on the 2nd or 3rd.

I always wondered where those product write-ups came from. So, what sort of products do they have you describing?

I thought maybe they would have you doing books and movies.
