Taking A Stand.

 Taking steps to be a better me.   I am done doing what is so-called best for me. I am working paycheck to paycheck without any benefits or a chance of improving myself on my job.

A job where my manager is trying to get me to either quit or push me into a hospital bed? I don’t care for either of those choices and I’m done with this kind of life.

It is beyond time I step out of what  so many people have called a normal life. You walk a straight line, go to work, pay the bills and give your loved ones a kiss, but where is the life in that?

I have been wanting to start my own website for a good while now. I was unsure of how to go about doing it and  asked someone to help me get started. I now know they were just trying to be nice, when they said they would build it for me.  I wish it had taken me over 4 months to realize that they were just being nice.

 Okay, I was going to sign up for school, but thought I would take a chance on another person to ask. I had to stop and think. If you want help with something specific, you need to make sure you are talking to the right person. I have always known of someone who knew about the computer world and could help or at least point me into the right direction.  

One of his suggestions was to be a copywriter or at least have an idea on what they do?   I’m like I don’t want to be a copywriter, so why do I need to know what copywriters do? Oh well, I am not working on something new, so  I took his advice.

It may have taken me a little over two weeks to complete this course,   but I’m glad I did. I had just thought having a website was all I needed? That was NOT the right answer. I learned a lot from Neville Medhora, https://kopywritingkourse.com/

I ended up with 15 handwritten pages of notes and 5 copied to my doc to  practice on and I am actually thinking on another line of work. Naw, just another way to help improve my writing, and to grow with words.

I don’t want to turn my writing into another day to day job. Then again I can choose whom I work for and what I am helping sell. Now there is another way to look at this as a potential job?

I am also back to working on my book. I didn’t want to edit it myself, but the cost of letting someone else do it, is a WOW amount of money I just do not have, but I am going to set it free. It will be 50,000 words and no more than 250 pages.  I am at a little over 33,000 words and not close to the end and it seems the more I cut – the more words are still there…

I am working chapter to chapter and one day it will be right. I am going to keep learning on how I can improve my writing, so when I do get my website up and running it will be at the best as I can make it. I know I want it to be different, but I am NOT the one to play follow the leader. I will do things my way (just like Usher – I do believe he had a song that said those two words “My Way” in it) and I will be happy.

I believe if you are “Happy” it shows in your work, your expression, and will make others enjoy that same feeling as well. I am taking a stand and will be free to be me!!!

 Bye IV Now, LD*
