Reminder: If you haven’t entered last week’s contest, there is still time.
Also, if you like to laugh, as you should, go check out my friend Casey’s blog post concerning a list of 30 uses for a toothpick that she and I came up with.
So, to today’s post. You know, I wanted to share the link to Casey’s blog and ended up titling my post “Monday’s Post” and deciding I was too lazy to come up with something more creative. Deal with it!
Anyway, I’m going to use my lazy-forced title as my inspiration for today’s post. This is my beginning to a new week! Monday is awesome in its gateway to a new week filled with possibilities. (Yeah, this is kind of an anti-Garfield thought.) Ok, so throughout my life, I’ve always enjoyed giving people advice. In high school, the advice I gave to friends was taken about 1% of the time (and that means about 2 things I said was actually used.) In college, people listened to me about 5% of the time (that’s cause you get smarter in college.) Nowadays, I try to avoid advice and stick with opinionated. It seems less hurtful when people ignore my opinions.
But something that I’ve enjoyed a lot lately is critiquing people’s writing. Why? Because I get to be the most anal-retentive person at that point in time. I would get to be nit-picky on grammar, word usage, continuity, and comma splices. (Isn’t ‘splice’ a cool word? Oddly enough, almost had a splice in here earlier.) Either way, if I could get paid for critiquing people’s writing, it’d be awesome. If I could be an editor for a publisher or agency, it’d be awesome. I’d get to use my nerdy grammar guru knowledge for the greater good!
Now if I can find an editing company/agency/publisher that could use my nerdy knowledge, it’d be almost like a dream come true. Being a non-self-published author, that would be a dream come true.
What are some talents you feel could benefit your life or others that you wish you had time to fine tune?
