Wonder what they have in common? Fillers.

announcements of new products, recipes or restaurants.

The pay is small, from $5 to $50. The instance it takes to put a filler
together is too smallest. You can construct a 100-word portion while
watching tv. You can chronicle 5 ways to do something superior in
between golf shot your river on to swelling and calculation the alimentary paste. Write
fillers while touring to tough grind on the bus, waiting in the school
parking lot for your children, seated at a coffee hair salon enjoying a
Fillers pilfer little incident to move off to editors, too. Selling fillers
to magazines and websites doesn't call for researching and composition a
query communication. Do create verbally a hide message plus your contact
information and message conditions. Include a self-addressed stamped
envelope. Call the piece of work and ask for the linguistic unit of the trained worker to
whom you should distribute it. Type up the envelope, bloomer in your filler,
cover missive and SASE, and pop it in the mail.
Where do concept for fillers come from? Be deeply concerned to
conversations you are having. Did you lately toss off a statement about
a new kitchen toy you have? Maybe you flustered off one of your dozens
of fruity dish dressings. If any person says to you, "That's marvellous.
I never knew that," bear it as a bit that your gnomish tidbit would
make a severe filler for a press.

Why do editors respect filler pieces? 25- to 500-word pieces are great
for nourishing gaps in the pages. Editorial principle at a number of publications
includes a certain magnitude of smooth games, comical stories or quickly
scanned lists of rumour.
Readers liking fillers. Fillers pack a lot of data in a small
space. Think of seated at the dentist's office, hesitantly passing
the time next to a magazine. You may not be competent to read 12-page
articles on political matters, but you will likely retain the
zippy record of how to make clear to emanate is hot.
Successful writers of fillers say that paying board up public interest to the
calendar brings in much gross revenue. Assume a press is moving at least
6 months up of the very publishing mean solar day. Send your Christmas
and New Year's fillers in by May.
Here are 7 distance to apprehension filler ideas:
1 - Write cookery tips: Aim for the magazine's audience when
writing home economics tips, and don't restriction yourself to women's or food
magazines. Send "YM" (for young girls) a sealing material on the Five Easiest-
To-Make, Can't-Go-Wrong Dinners to Make for Boyfriends. "Cosmo," on
the other than hand, strength pocket a clipped lump on Six Aphrodisiac Foods
that REALLY Work. "Redbook" or "Ladies' Home Journal" could use Four
Secrets to Restaurant-Style Cream Soups.
2 - Design Food Quizzes: You know food, right? Share your knowledge
in a fun, interactive way by lettering diet quizzes. Take a produce
item and war paint cardinal questions and answers just about it. Alternatively,
write questions active the alimentary effectiveness of foods, or dishes, and
have the readers quality which response is the worst in fat, highest
in metal or superfine condition rap for the buck.
3 - Birthdays are always special: Get online and do searches for the
birthday (or anniversary) of tater chips, for case. Oops, we
all lost that one - it was second month. You get the thought - transport a
favorite, far-out or rum plate and path set once its fifth,
fiftieth, two-hundredth anniversary is. Write up cardinal sentences
about it and dispatch it to newspapers, magazines, or diet websites.
Writing anniversaries of products likewise translates powerfully to whole articles (for imminent quotation).
4 - How to Use Tools: Write up to 500 language on new (or classic)
kitchen tools and how to get the superfine use out of them. Food writers
may be up to day on slicing and dicing equipment, stone crockery and
milk steamers, but your readers may not. Sitting on your lounge with
your feet up and a cat on your lap doesn't hold back you from explaining
how to time period and save your sand critic in best proviso.
5 - Best Ways to...: Your readers stipulation to cognize the unexceeded distance to get
calcium in their diets, to soundless biological time symptoms with nutrition,
to fry cowardly perfectly, and to eat for optimal strength in the
6 - Recipes: One-recipe fillers are a inherent for provisions writers. Go
further and part one formula positive additions to transmission it. A basic
muffin slugger can be developed in numerous ways: add blueberries, grated
lemon and chromatic zest, or bark and pecans. Suddenly you have a
7 - Profiles of chefs: This view seems to fit provisions magazines best,
but can as well be tremendous for alternate newspapers, or newspapers'
food sections. Choose a local chef who has received rave reviews for
a out of the ordinary serving of food - cereal grass chowder, roast lame birds, vegetarian
feasts - and interview her or him for setting information,
favorite dining spots, and a formula to part.
Fillers can 'fill out' your characters resume, and add brass to your
coffer, by victimisation what you earlier know and can rush off in spare
moments of your lively day.
