I am going to add a section of articles to this site -- not the forum but a separate part of the same domain -- once I accumulate enough of them so that I don't have empty pages. I'd like some of you to help with it. I can't afford to pay a lot, but I will compensate you for your work. There will be ads placed on these pages, but I don't anticipate a large revenue from them. If I do better than I expect, I'll be able to pay more for articles. Some of you have been published professionally, while there are others who have not been previously published, but you have ideas worth putting to words and the ability to do so, or would like to give it a try anyhow. What I'm not looking for are hard feelings from anyone who feels that I didn't pay them what they were worth, or who may have learned that I paid someone else more for an article. Some articles are worth more than others, and it might be that I can't afford some of you. In general, I'd rather have stories from your childhood than facts based on research. I'd rather have your feelings on a topic than a news or informational article on the subject. I'd rather have a story than a research paper. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am looking for something that means something to you as you are writing it, favoring entertainment over education, feelings over facts, and experiences over research. Write what you think, not what you think I want to hear. I mention these examples in order to give you an idea of what I'm looking for, not to say that I would reject fact-based articles, particularly if these are facts that are not easily obtainable through online research. Some topics may require another approach. Please don't make your article simply an extension of a forum conversation, although it may include topics that have been under discussion here. Although there may be exceptions to some of these based on the topic of the article, generally what I am looking for are articles that: Are 100% original, and not taken from anyone else's work, whether in whole or in part. Are based on the author's own experiences, reminiscences, feelings, ideas and thoughts. Are relatable to seniors, baby boomers, or people fifty or older. Are evergreen, whenever possible, which means not dated by current events. Are not dependent on links to other web sites. Are at least 750 words in length, with some exceptions. Are not published elsewhere. SENIORSonly Club would have exclusive rights to publish any articles that are accepted for publication here, which simply means that you would agree not to submit the same article elsewhere or give permission to anyone else to publish it. Once we have paid for the article, or published it on the SENIORSonly Club web site, demands to remove it will not be entertained. Prior to publication, your article may be edited as deemed necessary for the sake of grammar, proper spelling, or clarity. You will retain authorship of the article, however. No one else will claim your work as their own. I would encourage you to include your name as the author, but you may use a pseudonym if you wish. This is not content writing, in which I would be paying you to write an article that I would later claim to be my own. What I am paying for is the sole publishing rights to an article that you wrote for this web site. You remain the author of the article, and may use your own name.
