Today was a fairly Hectic day

Well, it's the end of the day, and end of the week.

I have almost finished the article that I'm writing, and I seriously hope that it is of publishable quality. Writing for a tech magazine is not my serious cup of tea, but then, I'd do anyhting to earn an extra buck. So hopefully, they publish it, and I get paid.

As for my real job, it's been a rather interesting day. So many things need to be checked, and double checked.

Well, writing this article for this tech magazine has made me realise something. That I am actually more inclined to write more lifestyle stuff. I can still write as a corporate writer, but my forte is in lifestyle and real life depictions. I am more comfortable in describing some facts of life, and that is, I would say, apparent here in this blog.

It's been quite a long time since I've assessed my writing style, but some of the comments that I have taken to heart are that I tend to be a tad too long winded. What can I say, I am a man that goes for details. Maybe I don't like to leave stuff untold, and up for free interpretation, maybe it's just my writing style.


I'm off for the weekend. Hopefully, when I come back on Monday, I'll be able to finish up the article.

i suppose you'll get the hang of it, particularly if you're being exposed to different contexts, and try different topics. like one thing i realised in my job is that i have to know everything across all industries. My first event i worked on was highly technical, and it drove my brains up the wall, just trying to develop the sessions and to the extent while inviting speakers, i had to talk to them as if i knew everything about reliability and maintenance. Then moving on to my next event, it is tailored for PAs and Secretaries. I then had to change my writing style and pick and choose what i felt was easier to deliver to the target audience. I suppose to remain competitve we really have to be flexible. You'll be fine Des, you'll rock your way through :)
