Writing is my therapy
I love writing I love it so much. I find it cathartic and useful. Writing stuff down that usually lives in my head helps me make sense of it.
Sometimes life is overwhelming, sometimes my brain is overwhelming. I’m a classic over thinker and I analyse every word spoken to me searching for subtle meaning or motive. It’s exhausting. All the scratchy spaghetti mixed up feelings come out in nice neat words that sit in organised sentences that can be arranged so they make sense.
I’m also addicted to sharing. Some people might say I over share. There is a satisfaction and sense of well being I can only get from writing.
I’ve spent so much of my life not knowing what career I wanted and not sure what I was actually any good at but I always knew I had a way with words and I was always the one asked to write the reports, the applications, the newsletters or the social media posts in any job I had.
I finally know what I’m meant to be doing
Combining my love of sharing and writing has led me to copywriting. For those of you who don’t know (I didn’t know) copywriting is writing text for the purpose of advertising or other forms of marketing. Copy, is written content to increase brand awareness and like all marketing, persuade a person or group to take a particular action.
Clair the Copywriter
I’ve listened to Chris Evans on Radio 2 most mornings for the last 6 years and he always says “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life” and I always wanted that for myself. With this in mind I have decided to start my own business as a freelance copywriter.
I don’t give up
I don’t believe most new start ups are destined to fail, you only fail when you give up. I know who I want to write for, it’s people like me. People who are passionate about living the life they want, being brave and who are determined to give it everything they’ve got to make it work. That’s my ethos and with that in mind I’ve decided to call it Up Write. I want to raise people up with my writing, I want to help them increase their business using my words and their feelings.
It’s personal to me
I also don’t believe business isn’t personal. People buy from people. When it’s your own business it’s extremely personal. I don’t do impersonal or formal. I do engaging, emotive and personable.
