For copywriters who are bad a lieingIf you’re one of the few freelance writers that isn’t already a pathological liar when it comes to deadlines, then consider this handy, non-hosted tool: The “Instant Excuse Ball.”

Modeled on the famous “shake-and-answer” Eight Ball, the Excuse Ball contains 20 different excuses, so if you’re writing a “dog ate my Web copy” email to a client – and you’re a poor liar – this is surely a worthwhile investment.

At the Copywriter Underground, we never stop looking for ways to make your life better.

Keep making excuses writing, Tom Chandler.
