Creative thoughts CAN make things happen

Two things on my ‘to do’ list for 2014 have already happened. And I firmly believe it’s because I’ve been thinking often enough, hard enough, and creatively enough about them since 1st Jan.

Word of the week: Groovy

My job is all about ‘words’ and making ‘words’ work in the copywriting and web content writing world. So I thought I’d create a ‘word of the week’ blog spot focusing on ‘words ’that we just don’t seem to use much in our everyday language. And then I’m going to try and use these ‘words’ […]

Fry’s English Delight

Really enjoying listening to the latest series of Stephen Fry’s English Delight on Radio 4, Wednesday mornings at 9am. He explores the highways and byways of the English language and has a knack of  making certain things ‘fascinating’ which maybe we wouldn’t normally consider ‘fascinating’.

So…’what do you do’?

Whenever I get asked this question, I’m often surprised how long it takes me to explain what I do before the penny drops. If I just say ‘copywriting’ I don’t feel this reflects the range and variety of ‘writing’ projects I do.  If I say ‘web content writing’ many people glaze over, not able to […]

Successful freelancing

I signed up to People per Hour around 2 years ago, and it was one of the best things I’ve done since ‘going freelance’. It brought me new work, and new clients – two of whom are ongoing. It works by simply making bids on projects that are suited to your skills.  It may take […]
