I’m getting paid for writing this. This, too. (Tip for aspiring writers: I was gonna say, “This, as well,” but I don’t want it to look like I’m padding this to make more money.) You might be wondering how this is possible. How is that hack Josh Levin raking in simoleons in the freelance writing game while I’m stuck with a dead-end, low-paying job in the rocket-science industry? Well, sir, I’m not wasting one more of my precious words on helping you take my job. OK, one more: workshop. Today, Loriann Oberlin, author of Writing for Quick Cash, co-presents “Get Write on It: How to Get Your Writing Published.” You might even see me out there, cruising the ‘burbs: At 10 cents a word, I think this blurb is gonna put me over the top on that Big Wheel I’ve had my eye on. The door to fame and fortune opens at 7:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 12089 Rockville Pike, Rockville. Free. (301) 881-0237. (Josh Levin)
