As fellow writers or entrepreneurs, we each know how it feels to become such an integral part of what we’ve written or hope to convey. It can be challenging to take a step back and look at the work as if it were not ‘our own baby bird’. Even though it’s not the easiest thing to seek another’s feedback, entrusting our ‘baby bird’ to the hands of another; it could also be the best thing we do.
Here you’ve been, nurturing and doting over your work… ‘this baby’ and it has grown beautifully as a result. Now, you’re feeling it’s almost ready for first flight, but not sure if it’s 100% prepared to launch. What better time for a fellow nurturer of the ‘written bird’ to give it the extra touches of tender-loving care it needs for take off?
Having already spent two decades of my life in the Education arena, writing has come in many forms aside from my authorship. My first love was becoming hired as an Editor for my Undergrad College Newspaper. I’ve enjoyed creating the Scope & Sequence for new curricula in the public and private sector, writing collegial graduate Independent Study Theses/Dissertations & Peer-Editing/proofreading those of my colleagues.
Creating writing presentations for interactive staff professional development seminars is something I also enjoyed because the efforts were so worth it in the end—witnessing peer educators collaborate on new ideas for the greater good of the students. In more recent years, I’ve done significant Business Content Writing and Proofreading of Business Documents for Entrepreneurs. This keeps me on my toes because I never know what the writing will entail. It could be proofing a presentation by a committee or creative writing for a housing developer. Overall, dedicated grammar edits and proofreading notes, along with more intense ‘wordsmithing’ have been at the forefront of everything I do. Editorial notes have become part-and-parcel to my work and those who’ve asked for my help, seem to appreciate the way my additional editorial notes are presented.
“Jenn, you provide us more, significant clarity, reassuring the intent of our writing and its purpose. Thank you for your Creative Marketing and Business Content Writing. It has made all the difference.” -Yo A. Wahn Son, Entrepreneur
A whole new bird’s eye view!
If we can approach our writing from this ‘heightened’ perspective, we allow it to grow to its full potential. That’s all we are each endeavoring to do anyway, right?
As an Author and life-long writer, I’ve always believed the most exciting part of my writing world is when my fingers touch the keys and the ideas flow. Thoughts from within…emerge into something tangible.
As the years pass and the more I write, I realize there’s another element to writing which energizes my creative sense—getting to know and work with some of the most creative and talented writers—people I never would have met, had it not been for our mutual love of language and the written word.
These peers, growing experts in their own fields or preferred genres, have inspired me with their written works. The independence, fortitude and unparalleled creativity I’ve witnessed, is now another aspect to authorship that fuels my own writer’s spirit to press on. My writing peers are scholars of Academia, Entrepreneurs with Presentations, Historians who re-create credible, engaging accounts of History within the context of Historical Fiction, suspenseful Thrillers and Non-Fiction. These writers exude sheer genius in their art for composing words that reach the heart of the reader. They are writers of Ethnic Fiction; whose stories bring out the richness of a culture. They are writers of Children’s Stories, Sociological Novels, and they are the creators of Fantasy & Science Fiction Worlds filled with the surprisingly unfamiliar—anomalies of adventure. My interactions with these authors has shown me something: no matter the genre, writing—for us—is like breathing… it’s a way of life. Without it, life would not be the same.
I’d like to ask you to consider The Jennieration the very next time you need another in our village to thoroughly verify—your written word is prepared for its ‘best flight.’
I will make sure the end results satisfy the means. Thank you.
