I am taking the time to define my title as in our world, words change meaning. I would like learn how to write-effortlessly. I know that I have put forth a lot of time and study for my writing to come more easily.

Here’s an exciting update on my copywriting business. I’ve approached three people about writing sales copy and all three have been willing to give my services a try. The catch was, I would provide free services. Sounds counterintuitive but I want to concentrate on creating a workflow and system of handling clients. To do this effectively, I would need real clients. I would gain the advantage of a ready made portfolio showcasing actual experience. Not just generic pieces from made up companies. Just like a chef in training doesn’t cook make-believe food.

Becoming effortless reminds me of the time when I was a kid. Once, I tried to mimic the moves of a ballerina. The awkward and twisted hand features did not match the graceful moves I was trying to copy. I then learned that it took much practice and years to become a ballerina. Not to mention my awareness that my body was too small and stiff. The same can be said about writing effortlessly. One day my writing will be read in such a way that the words will move just as effortlessly as a ballerina.

My friend be safe, peaceful, and grateful till next month.
