People often say to me: “Oh, so you must be good with words.”
In a loose way that’s probably true.
I am good with words.
I like words a lot.
I like words that confound expectations – I mean, why is ‘abbreviation’ such a long word? That’s a terrible dad joke, I know. But I am a dad – so I assume that’s OK.
For me, it’s not so much about the words themselves as the communication they provide.
That’s my passion, using words to meet people where they are. The thrill of putting together a piece of writing that eliminates barriers; placing both the reader and the person/business/brand communicating with them into an unhindered state of ‘flow’.
So yes, I’m good with words. But only in the same way a joiner is good with hammers. Words aren’t the endgame, they’re not the reason why we do this. Communication is the key – just as the joiner only wields a hammer to create a table.
I wanted to let you know about my new website – showing everything I do as a writer, yes even some that isn’t ‘dad’ related.
I write columns, features, copywrite and a whole host of other things. It’s all there at:
Why not take a look?
