3 Writing Jobs That Are Waiting for Me

When I was a teenager, I harbored the secret notion that someday I would write novels. I started a couple, and only eked out a few pages. (I wonder where they are? Those might make fun posts!)

  1. As I was staring at a Starbucks bag this morning that is now home to Lily’s Princess cash register, I noticed some writing on it.

    “On a faraway hillside,
    Manolo rakes his
    coffee beans in the sun.
    He is preparing them for their
    pilgrimage north.
    A journey where they will be
    refined by fire.
    Each morning, I am greeted by coffee
    from a land I have never seen,
    but I have
    tasted its beauty.
    Thanks to Manolo.”

    Don’t you love the way it personalizes the coffee trade? Yes, I’m sure Manolo lives a life of luxury, down there in Latin America. I tend to be a little cynical. However, on their website, I did find that Starbucks is trying to be ethical in the coffee trade, for all you Starbucks lovers out there. Good news from my future employer.

  2. How about finding quotes for those little tags on tea bags? If a perk for this job is free tea, I’m in! Here’s one from Good Earth tea: “The truth is the kindest thing we can give folks in the end.” Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1811-1896
  3. One of the gift bags I received at Christmas had words written all over it, in different fonts and sizes; vertically and horizontally. All I need for this job is a good thesaurus.
