FIVE MINUTES ... Is All You Need phone a friend .....   peel potatoes for dinner ..... pick the kids up from school   .....  or write a few words that could earn you anything from a plastic pinny or ballpoint pen, to a dream house in the sun, a top-of-the-range sports car, or huge sums of money in cash and luxury goods!

Even if just a few minutes a day is all you can spare, you can  still be a well-respected, regularly


 published writer. 

No special skills are required, you definitely don't need a  computer or word processor, a telephone or desk.  And you  certainly do not need lots of spare time ..... because you
are about to enter the fascinating world of .....


Short written pieces are in great demand all over the world, by  editors and publishers, alongside other high-paying clients,  both to fill space where a feature falls short of the published
page, hence 'filler', and to lighten otherwise staid  publications, such as medical journals and import/export  bulletins.

Five minute writing covers far more enjoyable and profitable
projects than most people appreciate  .....  taking just minutes
to produce  .....  and covering everything from readers' letters
and fillers, to mini-articles, puzzles and quizzes, recipes and

  How to Write and Sell Greeting Cards,...   The 30-Minute Writer
Just a few minutes at a time. That's all you need to write the one-pagers, mini-profiles, reviews, op-eds and other articles that today's editors are buying. With the game plans for more than a dozen kinds of pieces, you'll learn how to convert your throwaway time into copy that sells.

household hints, photographs and cartoons, to greetings card verses, competition slogans, and much, much more besides. 

That's why five minute writing is considered the very best way to begin and develop a successful writing career, and why many established and very well-paid writers stay with this profitable medium, plus:

-  It's very satisfying to see your work and name in print and
the earlier that happens the sooner you become a professional
writer, and the smoother the road becomes to longer, more
profitable writing assignments.

-  Smaller pieces gets you known to editors who, having seen and enjoyed your work, are more likely to commission you for longer pieces later. 

-  Word for word, rewards are far higher than for almost any
other type of written projects, with the possible exception
of creating winning slogans and tie-breakers for big-prize
competitions.  (Don't worry, How to Be a Five Minute Writer
includes a free guide to writing competitions tie-breakers
and slogans).

-  No rejection slips, ever!  What better start to a full-time
writing career?

-  Finished pieces can be completed in minutes and spread over
whatever time the writer can spare between other professional and
domestic activities.  Great for mother or career, or otherwise
housebound or restricted individual with a desire to write, but
little time to spare. 

-  No bulky equipment and research materials required, meaning
you can write, any time, any place, anywhere.   A notepad and
pen is all you really need to get started on this amazing
journey to becoming a well-paid writer.

-  Fillers can be fitted between longer writing or non-writing
assignments, offering a change of 'scenery' and more frequent
financial rewards.

-  Every single piece you write can be recycled in columns,
articles, even full-length best-selling books, and can continue
earning high rewards over months, years, perhaps forever.

It's not a case of 'cheap and cheerful' for those who publish
your work - they need you - to increase interest in their
publications, reduce reading times, multiply circulation rates,
and cut their overheads.

For that they'll reward you well, and continue doing so, perhaps
for the lifetime of your mutual existence!
