I’ve been one for almost 30 years. Most of that time I freelanced. For most of that time, I wrote commercial marketing work (ad campaigns, websites, brochures, etc.).
Along the way, I wrote some unbylined editorial style work for clients. And the odd bit of bylined journalism for myself.
I liked it. So did the editors involved. (No surprise — my background is in journalism.)
Now that I’ve got two young daughters, you could say I’ve got skin in the game. I want a better future for them.
So I’m writing less copy. And more editorial work.
