A writer’s gotta
write to be a writer…right?
Who am I?
Need to plan your platform?
If it has to do with biz, busy keystrokes,
or ballpoint pens, I’m your girl!
I’m a writer who happens to
know a thing or two (or three).
I parked my office-bound aspirations at a major energy & resources company, where I work as a technical writer/editor for large-scale proposals. I’ve seen all sorts of business and technical writing in my almost 4 years tenure.
After hopping around from mistake to win a time or two, I’ve seen how transcendent the right workflow can be.I’m sure there’s a dead horse dwelling around here (somewhere); however, after spending almost 2 years isolating myself in a social media echo chamber, I had an awakening.
I’m not actually a writer.
Ok. So I make that sound more dramatic than it is. But, I’m not too far off.
Listen, I’ve fallen into more than a few mental slumps lately. All of them had one thing in common: I waste too much time trying to make everything work manually.
My epiphany had my obsessing about how I could have more time to write if only I could hire a personal assistant or wrangle in my hubby to help edit a video or two. Here’s the thing. I couldn’t (and probably won’t for some time) afford to hire anyone. Teaching someone something takes time.
Why not just teach myself how to manage my platform on autopilot?
As I continue crafting my perfect workflow, I’ve realized more time on my hands, which I use to write (really). We all have the same 24 hours in each and every day; however, with just a bit of organization and automation, I’ve transformed my mindset and lifestyle tenfold. Productivity isn’t just a common YouTube search for me. It’s my reality.
