Bringing Writing to Work

I was asked to write a blog-style piece for my job the other day. Part of what my Day Job is involves providing customer service via online chat, e-mail or telephone to users of one of our websites. We have a section where we wanted to write more blog-style posts to help connect with our users and offer them support and tips with their educational goals.

So I wrote a piece and I am now nervous as hell to let my co-workers read it. I get the honour of working with very talented people and I am just deathly afraid that my post won’t be good enough. I don’t take criticism well sometimes, especially with writing and especially when I can put faces to the critics. I know I’ll get over it but I’m still nervous nonetheless at this point in time.

I’ve been slyly working on TAK during my lunch breaks. Like I mentioned before I had the mapping for the novel roughly written out. I think I’ll spend some time today to make that more solid. I’m not used to mapping as I usually just write and see where it goes. Not that that’s a bad thing, but mapping isn’t a bad thing either. It helps me flesh some stuff out and notice any potential inconsistencies.

I’ve gotten some more freelance work which makes me happy. I also applied for an unpaid internship with an anime website I frequent regularly.

It’s actual lunchtime now, so I’m going to go get started on that mapping. I have a new pen for the job and everything!
