Since I really only posted once in July, I have been feeling guilty about not posting very much. While part of that is that Dara called me from Singapore to tell me to post, it’s also that…. well, I like to write. And writing, like any skill, is something that a person has to do often to stay sharp at it. If I stop writing for long lengths of time, I can see it actually getting flabbier. Flab is for my upper arms, not for my writing. So, it’s bad for my 5 readers, and bad for me if I let it slide for too long.
Also, in the past couple of weeks, my writer’s ego has taken a bit of hit. I have been writing the papers for my marketing class, and we have been downgraded both times because the professor doesn’t like the writing. Which, of course, upsets me because I feel like writing is my strength. If I don’t have that, then what am I? I hate the hits to my ego on this point, and while I think any professor’s style is subjective, it still smarts.
He actually said, “You need to write for an audience.” What have I been doing semi-anonymously for the last eight years?mba, website
