I Also Wanted to Win Digital Copywriter's Reality Blog Challenge . . .
But I didn't. I didn't even make it into the final four.
And yes, I DO plan to die mad about it.
In the meantime, however, I'm going to learn how to be a copywriter, and instead of blogging about it on a well-known and respected website, I'm going to blog about it here.
But First, I Want to Make Some Things Clear
So About that Copywriting Stuff . . .
I've already started the AWAI Method, but I haven't gotten very far yet. With my life, brain, and schedule, I already knew it was going to take a while to get through it. But two of the things they recommend a copywriter do are to read and write every day. Yes. Every. Day. Granted, they'd probably prefer I write copy every day, but I think whatever keeps the ol' writing muscles in action will work. As for the reading part, I HAVE A LIST.
It's a list I've curated from other people's curated lists. I've bought most of the books--primarily in Kindle format, but some of them aren't available in digital format. And some of them (even used) are more than I'm willing to spend at the moment. Still . . . would you like to see my list of copywriting books? It's a very nice list. I'll even tell you which ones have required some internet shopping sleuthery and which ones make my wallet start crying.
But I think I'll show it to you next time. It's late, I'm tired, and both my shrink and my therapist are always after me to have better "sleep hygiene." Nighty-night!
