new(ish) year, new job

so I'm sat drinking peppermint tea and watching the Brits, thinking about what I can write and if it will be interesting. I've not been blogging too much so far this year because, well, I've had my stresshead on and I find it difficult to motivate myself to do anything other than lie on the couch when I'm feeling that way. but anyway, the exciting news of the year is...I have a new JOB

A WRITING JOB

yes, that's right. you heard me

A WRITING JOB

as of next Monday (if they bother themselves to get my contract to me, but that's another story and will just involve me whinging about how rubbish HR are, so I'll save us all some time and leave that bit out) I will officially be a Communications Executive. now, this is definitely one of those jobs where they didn't quite know what to call it, so they stuck "executive" on the end, but hey, it works for me.

so, as of next Monday, my duties will include writing and editing an in house magazine. I will have other things, writing marketing material, standard letters, blah blah blah, but the main bit of my job will be writing and editing.

how exciting is that?!?!?!?!

it's taken me a long time to get here, but it finally seems like I've alligned my writing and my working life. I hope.

so I only have two more days of old work left, then I'm off on Friday as they boyfriend and I are having a birthday and then I have the new job. and I might blog a bit more. because I'm in a bit of a better fettle.

Wow! Congratulations! Let us know how it's going. The only creative writing my job involves is filling in my timesheet!
