It’s a Pen…….The Big Green Pen.
Last week, I talked about the first of the three primary goals that I have written down on a sheet of paper in my wallet (so I always have them “close”):
One thing that has been helpful about working with Noel (besides the fun I have editing his press stuff) is the kinds of questions he has asked, questions that are helping me figure out what I want “The Big Green Pen” to do. In his most recent email, he asked, “what call to action do you want?” And I have spent the days since I received that email searching for an answer. Do I want people to ask for estimates? Do I want them to have more awareness of what I do so they can share information about me with potential customers? The truth is I don’t know, beyond the fact that my work needs a home, and I need to share it.
The truth is that proofing, editing, and writing make me happy. And I am increasingly finding that doing what makes me happy, even if I have to forego some sleep or compress my other commitments into even tighter compartments, creates a kind of cool energy that staves off exhaustion.
The Big Green Pen. I’ll use it to write a better 2010.
I’ll “run” into you next week!
