I’m still writing.
Blogging for RetailMy online portfolio
I have the opportunity to blog for the business I work at. I also do a lot on our social media sites. Behind the scenes, I write a lot of copy.
It’s all very different for me. I work in baby retail. It’s not an area of business that I ever really had much interest in before, and it’s strange to think that I now have an opinion on cloth diapering or crib mattresses. But I do. And I really enjoy work.
Retail hours can be frustrating, however. I don’t have weekends anymore. Not really.
Manuscript, Numero Dos
I’m in the process of editing my second story. I had hoped to work on a chapter per week, but I made an executive decision last week that shot that idea in the foot. I am still editing chapter one, and I’m writing new material, too! Because I realized that when I muse over this story, I see it as having 2 main characters, and therefore, I thought it only
write right, (sorry–Freudian slip), to let the second also share his side of the story. At least partly.
We’ll see how long that lasts. It’s a bit of writing out of my comfort zone. This second character I know well, having created him, and yet helping him find his voice is proving to be a challenge because he’s very different from the original protagonist.
So, yeah. Any thoughts? Tips? Suggestions? Writing gigs?
