How To Finish
I write for a living. I also build websites and I market them but I do that to house the content I write. People like the way I do that part of the job so they often hire me to do it for them as well, but fundamentally I am a writer. It’s what I do. It’s also the hardest part of my job as every day I have to finish pieces of work and send them out into the world. Every day I look at my job sheet and think ‘How do I finish that?’ Most of us sit down to write with a topic in mind or on the job sheet, but that is the easy part. The big question is what to write about that topic, sitting there like a ripe plum waiting to be picked.
The Most Precious Gift You Can Give
When going through my feed reader the other day I came across an interesting post that piqued my interest on a personal as well as a business level.

It got me thinking about it from the other end, the customer - a point of view I am well qualified to take!
