For the past few months, all it seems like I have been doing is writing. You guys are killin’ me. I know how disappointed you are when there isn’t a fresh new blog post waiting for you.
Ok, I am just kidding. I am not even talking about this blog. I have been writing for a number of websites and, as the title suggests, it’s tough stuff. I am not sure how professional writers do it.
How you ever read an English major’s bio? If not, let me tell you how it goes…”I just LOVE writing. If I didn’t have my writing, I don’t know what I would do.” You know, pretty typical college age stuff. Yeah, just wait until they get into the “real world” where their writing actually means something to someone besides themselves. Just wait until they have someone standing over their desk tapping them on the shoulder, asking if it’s done yet. We’ll see if they would still be lost without their writing.
Oh, who am I kidding? I was exactly that college student who thought his paper was so good it deserved to be laminated. Maybe it’s called pride.
Anyway, yes, I have been doing a lot of writing. I have come to the conclusion that writing plays an extremely important role in my line of work. Who knew it would actually come down to this fuzzy “human” stuff? I have managed to outsource most of my day to day tasks, but I still find myself behind this keyboard typing away quite frequently. Sometimes, I don’t even know what I am talking about. Can you imagine how Steven King or John Grisham feels. Now, they have it rough. Jeez.
