How My Sweaty Weekend Reminded Me of Being a Writer

How was your weekend? Mine was hot–I mean like in the high 80s hot or so. So no shopping, or comics, or papers to speak of…just chugging water, and trying to keep cool (and deciding against drawing the drapes in the interest of healthy exposure to sunlight).

Do I have AC at home? Yep, I do, but I try to save it for the 90+, I’m-gonna-die-from-sweat-humidity type days.

Yesterday was not that type of day–it bordered on it, but in the end, things were fine.

Kinda reminds me of being a writer. So much of it is personal choice. What type of fiction do you write? Some people know what they like, and others have to try a few things (and some try some things to stretch themselves–more of something that I should do).

Do you publish it for others to enjoy on a blog like this, or try to get the world at large interested by getting a commercial rig-up to publish it…or do you publish it on Amazon yourself and shoot the word out?

Personal choice, again.

If you’re a copywriter, what niche do you write copy for? Health? Making money? B2B? Education? Other writers have a type of copy that they specialize in, like VSL scripts, sales letters, emails, or what-have-ya. Not to be confused with content like blogs or white papers (which other writers specialize in).

That’s all based on personal…you get the idea.

Personal choice is also why I schedule posts ahead of time. Seems that I’ve got some script notes to look over, another to draft, and a lawn that regrettably doesn’t mow itself.

So in the end, find what works for you, get good, and work it.

I know I will be…and remember to enjoy the process, and go easy on yourself.

Until next time,
