I've been working on the marketing materials for this novella myself in the evening while busying myself with actual writing during the day. As ever I remain busy during the day working on all sorts of writing projects for paying clients.
The last few months I've been working with a client with a website that specialises in telling the very personal stories of those who have been through difficult experiences. It has often been very emotional and to talk to people who, for example, are survivors of serious child abuse. It has also been fascinating talking to people whose lives are radically different to my own. interviewing a trucker who drives all over U.S.A. with his wife and live out of their truck revealed a way of life that I hadn't ever encountered.
This is one of the great things about working with other companies and websites on writing and marketing projects. I get to learn abotu different industries and I get to learn about fascinating topics and subjects that I havne't come across.
Can't wait to see what the next major project I work on will reveal to me. I think that is the mark of a writer, amongst other things: curiosity about people, the way they live their lives and the world around us.
I'm a freelance writer and all-round creative professional. I'm always working on one project or another (usually several at once!)
