My original title for this post was "How To Milk One Subject For All It's Worth and Get Paid Twice" but I didn't think it would fit in the header box.

Once I got the hang of how to sell essays by using a current topic/trend as a jumping off point, I kicked it up a notch (thanks to the advice of some more seasoned writers than I) and learned you can get two distinct essays from that said topic. I thought I'd pass on the learning. 

I've done it this time using the break out hit "2 Broke Girls". In the past, I used the much promoted/talked about movie "Bridesmaids."

Here are my examples:

"But it's hard enough to write one essay," you may say. Give yourself some credit. If a topic can bring to mind one personal story, it can bring forth another. Perhaps not every time, but every once and a while, wouldn't it be nice to get a double pay check.
