Give It Away

It's Wimp-out Wednesday and today I'm testing out a new interview strategy. Here's my prepared speech:

What I've got you've got to give it to your mama
What I've got you've got to give it to your papa
What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you
Reeling with the feeling don't stop continue

Realize I don't want to be a miser
Confide with sly you'll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin' upriser
How come everybody want to keep it like the kaiser?
....
Lucky me swimmin' in my ability
Dancin' down on life with agility
Come and drink it up from my fertility
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility

What do you think? With my luck, the chorus will coincide with salary negotiations (give it away, give it away, give it away now...) but that should only intrigue potential employers. Budgets are tight these days. Then again, it's never good to undersell oneself on an interview. (Oh, who'm I kidding? I've been known to work for Fritos!) In the field of writing, I'll daresay that most everyone has done at least a little bit of work for free, be it book giveaways (which are so effective for garnering reviews and eventually boosting sales) or pro-bono writing for a cause that sparks your passion. It's an all-around good practice, and one you won't regret. 
So...Anyone have a pair of spiky pants I can borrow?

  1. Hi, Jennifer,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today for the blitz.
    Yup at some time or another we do give stuff away.
    As a writer that has worked for me in that people find my books through downloading a free read.

  2. I think people are on to us, J.L! We love it so much we'd do it for free. Then again, I'm sure Miguel Cabrera loves baseball too. Thanks for stopping by!
