Retirement Hobby: Poetry and Song Lyric Writing
by Allen Paulson
I was forced to retire in 2009 because of health reasons and basically watched tv, played poker, but then remembered I used to write song lyrics for many years so that is what I do as I enjoy the challenge of words and stories.
I have many on websites of others on the net.
I guess I really want to be a writer in my retirement years for pay or hobby preferably pay. :)
Wendy: Check out Fiverr.com... you only get paid $5 for each job, but write a clever birthday song, and sell it over and over, or personalize songs for $10 (request and they pay twice). It's really low pay but if you become popular, you could have a nice income coming in.
Do a search for other song writers and see what they offer. Bet there are some out there!!
Write personalized poems for all sorts of occasions.. ask for a few details of the persons life and write away!
Just an idea!!
