That was my first thought when the editor-in-chief at Lynchburg Living sent me a writing assignment focused on how seniors can manage their medications. I knew she could give me insights from her daily life.
I looked very pregnant when I asked them to take me up on the roof. I had just finished talking to the team at Central Virginia Community College where I had been sitting in the conference room. For the whole interview, my short frame was wedged underneath the table where the receptionist had sat me before my subjects arrived.
They offered to take me on the roof to see the solar panels they were using for the class. I said yes and stood up, revealing my bulging belly.
I laughed at the awkwardness and told them I was still fine with stairs and walking. And then, we went up to see the hands-on-learning station for their solar power program.
Writing a solid article takes time, connections, and experience. When done correctly, your organization gains massive exposure through a legitimate news outlet. Working with a ghostwriter can help you put together a story that captures the attention and imagination of your target audience.
By working with a freelance copy editor, you can elevate the quality of your creative elements. Whether you are working as an individual or managing a team, the extra set of eyes will make you feel more confident before you publish (unlike the $250,000 Metropolitan Transportation Authority gaffe).
It’s easy to get tunnel vision when reviewing your own work. That’s why I work with creatives to give them an outside perspective. Otherwise, you may find yourself publishing while weary and cross-eyed.
