Restart

So, finally, I have something to do that I actually want to do. I've just been asked to join a collective of freelance copy editors. I have a feeling that this is probably the first time in my professional life that I will actually enjoy what I do. The last two months of submitting my CV online have just reinforced the fact that nobody gets hired by applying online. And in the process, somewhere I began to question myself, as to whether this decision to wait for the right job in the right location was going to be a great debacle. At this moment, I'm just grateful I had the courage to walk away from the comfortable. And I haven't found the perfect job yet, but I'm certain that the lords of language won't leave my great love unrequited.

Maybe it's a good thing that I was so terrible at math. Or that my drawings looked like dullness itself. Maybe it is wonderful to only be good at one thing; juggling words around till they please you. Atleast when you find where your soul needs to be, there won't be other tempting paths to confuse you.

So it begins.

Best of luck with this new place! CopyBoutique is it?

And you meant Copy "Writers", right?

No, I mean copy editors. I am no longer a copywriter, thank heavens.

And where have you been?

Love this little peace of yours. I'm going through the same crap. Hope I too have a sort of happy ending! :P

Thumbs up for the new job! Let's just hope the grass is actually greener on the other side!
