A Day In The Life Of A Copywriter
< continued from page one
...issue of this Write Right newsletter. I edit his answers slightly to fit the word count, and start thinking about the other 3 articles I need to write within the next two working days.
Walk across the park to the High Street, to pay in that cheque. It’s a lovely day, and I wish I was sitting on a sun-lounger reading a book, instead of being stuck to my Mac all day.
Hoorah! A long-standing client has come back to say he wants me to write the brochure I quoted for. That goes on...
...the list for next week, together with another 5 web pages a new client wants me to edit, and an in-house social media training course I’m running in deepest Kent.
I also see a newsletter I wrote for a regular client has now been sent as scheduled, so I log in to her Constant Contact account and add it to the archive.
I start designing an invitation flyer for an upcoming event for another regular client. I’m missing some key information, so can’t get too far with it. Never mind, it’s not urgent. Not yet anyway.
I log off.
So, was that a typical day for me as a copywriter? Yes, pretty much. A bit of copywriting; a bit of training. A bit of progressing work in progress, a bit of developing work in the pipeline. A bit too much time on Twitter and Facebook, and a walk in the park. It’s not a bad life.
