Want to know what really makes me happy? Come on, indulge me. Of course you do.
Well, it’s writing. Writing most anything, to be honest: Letters … brochures … websites … blogs … emails … white papers … collateral material … postcards … commercials … ads … online ads … press releases … presentations … articles … RFPs … POVs … and yes, even books (have a memoir about my mother and me on the go right now, as a matter of fact.) For that matter, I’ll even ghost write your book.
I love everything about writing: Words. What they mean. How their meaning can change depending on the context in which you use them. Punctuation, and how the use of an exclamation point instead of a period can make a simple sentence more dramatic, or more important. I love the rhythm you can create. I love getting that first thought down on paper, or on the screen. I love reading my first draft. Then re-writing. Editing. Refining. Polishing. And crafting. I love telling stories … sharing feelings … having conversations … selling ideas … evoking emotions … triggering memories … and getting reactions.
