Words are my thing.
It’s almost January 2018, and I have finally taken steps to change my career. Officially! I’m no longer happy as a teacher, and my new role as a mama doesn’t allow me the time and opportunity to explore my passion for writing. So, I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and concentrate on my dream to become a writer. So, I am beginning a new life as Redlands’ newest Copywriting, Editing, and Proofreading specialist.
For the past 18 years, I have worked as an English Teacher and Head of Department in a bustling high school. In this role, I was often called upon to do many tasks where finding the right words were the focus. As such, I have written copy for the school’s website, speeches, brochures, newsletters, emails, and letters.
Also, I’ve designed work programs for student learning with sample resources and exemplars. Not to mention, the time I have spent proofreading and editing my own, friends and students’ work.
I even wrote a personal blog for over ten years that followed my family’s adventures around the globe.
Yet, I never really considered myself a writer, even though I did enough of it for credibility.
However, in recent years, I have further developed my skills in proofreading for friends who have written feature articles, short stories, novels and textbooks, and in editing for a community magazine. Thanks to the
Thanks to the Australian Writers Centre, and my completion of three courses: Creative Writing Stage 1, Newspaper & Magazine Writing 1 and Copywriting Essentials, I feel more confident to focus solely on my ability to manipulate words.
Words that inspire. Words that affect emotions. Words that persuade. Words that sell.
Now with this new webpage, my Facebook page, and Twitter account, I have created a new identity for myself as a writer, focusing on copywriting, proofreading and editing. And for once, I’m no longer a teacher.
So, join me – Redlands’ newest Copywriter, Proofreader, and Editor – as I launch Right Lane Writing Services.
Let’s hope that dreams do come true.
