This week's writing assignments have me researching ancient Egyptian art and history, the New York stand-up comedy scene, bridal industry trends, a fancy garden party benefit for a charity that helps the developmentally disabled, and much more.
Sometimes I find myself wishing I had a 9-5 communications gig with a big company in the Loop (downtown Chicago is such a magical place), but then, I'm pretty sure I'd get bored writing the same stuff in the same style about the same people again and again.
I like making phone calls to people in a wide range of professions, across thousands of miles, and learning about what they do. I like being prompted to learn more about something that otherwise may not have bleeped on my radar.
Now I'm going to finish up some PR stuff and then sit down and write some greeting card ideas!
Woo hoo for variety!
