I am in the midst of my first legit (paying) writing gig in years. The first writing job that isn't journalistic or completely self serving. And this is the first time that I am writing about things that I do not understand (business analytics. what the whuuuut?).
I am terrified. Terrified. I've never been this scared about failing at something that I always considered myself pretty dang good at doing.
I needed to take a break and write about myself for thirty seconds so I could feel the accomplishment of having words come easy, of knowing the definition of everything I am typing, of knowing I am saying the things I want to say.
I've never taken such a giant shot in the dark. Despite all my swagger, I am completely doubtful of my technical writing ability.
In other news: musicals are the best writing music, Dunkin's pumpkin spice coffee is no joke, and I now have a clementine tree growing in my belly.
