Shadows on the Dance Floor 

Oh, I know about your kind and so I’ll have to play.
It’s murder on the dance floor so you’ll just have to pray.
If you think you’re getting away, I will prove you wrong,
I’ll take you all the way, girl, just come along.
Hear me when I say `Stay another song’.
It’s murder on the dance floor, I’ll blow you all away.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – `Murder On The Dance floor’

Red lights play over her skin as she moves to the music. Her warm scent floats to me over the crush of bodies on dance floor. From across this room filled with blood and flesh she still has the power to draw me to her.

All these others, the still-living, are no longer real to me. Former friends, and schoolmates, all are like shadows to me now. How strange it seems that I once cared about them or what they thought of me. I can barely recall it, how it felt, even though it was just hours ago.

I’m different now, more powerful; I feel so strong. The force of the life around me touches me, flows through me. I’m connected, man, to everything! I can hear the creatures outside in the sky, in the grass, under the earth. I am linked to them, to their little lives.

Except for these, the ones I will feed upon. They must die so that I might live. Or at least survive.

You see, copywriters aren’t project managers or creative directors. They are not typically on par with being paid by results, such as how many new clients you gain from their copywriting.

Therefore, if you find that it’s stressful, frustrating, and just plain maddening to get the blogging job done, you might need an editor, not a blog writer.

Here are three signs you just need your copy dusted off:

No one can capture your voice…no one

Copywriting is unique. Writing voice refers to the syntax used by a writer. It is specific from person to person – including verbs, vocabulary, and sentence structure.

If you’ve been through half a dozen writers and you still shake your head over everything they write…you might be standing in your own way.
