I Guess I'm a Writer

The Scene: A chic cocktail party in a loft apartment.

Aaron and I meet another couple. We exchange names and hellos.

"So, Emily, what do you do?"

"I'm a writer."

That's it! That's what I do! I write! Okay, that scene never actually took place and probably never will. However, the part about me being a writer is true.

I have quit my day job to pursue writing as a full-time business. I sell words. The next question is the most difficult.

"Oh really? What do you write?"

Basically, I write everything. I write articles. I write books for other people. I write newsletters. I write press releases. I write my own book. I write website copy. I write sales letters. Oh, and I edit, too.

I've wanted a blog for years, but never made the time. My friend Marion said, "Emily, I would love to read a blog you wrote." So I thought the timing perfect, as I tackle this new venture in my life.

I'll post pictures, stories about my life, writing pieces that are actually interesting, social commentary, reviews (on wines, restaurants, movies, books) and maybe some recipes. I'm not sure if anyone will read it except my mom and boyfriend. We'll see ...
