The time has come to DO, not just think and plan to become a writer. The first item on my list is to learn how to type properly, not just the fast hunt-and-peck i’ve taught myself to do. While it has served me for years, I think of how easy it would be to type quickly with speed and accuracy to get my thoughts onto the computer. I looked around for free typing tutors online and finally found one that seemed inviting. Only a few days of practice and my hands feel more comfortable moving around the keyboard! I’ve also been researching Technical Writing and have an appointment to talk with a Senior Technical Writer to find out if that is an avenue I’d like to explore further. The idea of writing how-to projects for different audiences seems stimulating. On the creative front, there are writing jobs available on job boards all over the internet that are peaking my interest. I will definitely be spending more time researching those boards. For now I’m going to focus on typing practice and writing without thinking or worrying about the outcome. Afterall, that is what editing is for!
