for a strong, fast pick-me-up
It’s interesting how writers like to describe themselves and their creations. Words matter. Descriptions matter.
I’ve written speeches for politicians and business people – and I loved being able to say “I am a speechwriter!”
When I think about it – it’s probably because I was such a fan of great speeches such as those given by MLK and JFK.
I’ve also written copy for business websites and marketing collateral – but I never wanted to be called a copywriter.
Rightly or wrongly – I preferred to think of myself as a writer.
From my experience, there was even a hierarchy within copywriters with advertising copywriters being at the more glamorous end.
I enjoyed sharing my writing tips with advertising agency copywriters. I found the writers I helped were happy to learn any writing tips – no matter the “writing background” of the “teacher”.
