I came across Mike Stratton on oDesk way back in 2009. He had then posted a project Increase Your ODesk Rating 5/5 – Fictional Story of Encouragement. The intriguing project title drew me to it. Leave alone the ranking and the money, Mike was talking about, it was for a noble cause. Besides it would help me assess my creative skills. Mike should like it enough to publish it on his site.
I did not submit my bid immediately. I had to make sure that I had something to write about in Mike’s own words , “a personal story of encouragement/ empowerment”. I had to write a fictional story in about 500 words.
When I woke up the next morning, I had the story outline. When I sat before my keyboard it took me something like sixty minutes to complete it. You can read the story here.
Thank you Mike, for giving me that break.
Please, leave your comment here to let me know what you think about Mike, his initiative and my story.
