Um...I'm not really a writer

Um, I got hired to write a story for this super rad magazine. I must have told them like 4 times I'm not "really" a writer...they didn't seem to care. They went ahead and gave me an assignment anyway. 1000 words and a deadline and everything. OMG I am freaking out, didn't they hear me? I'm not really a writer, I hardly now how to spell and my most used word is super (which I will so throw in there) I almost told them no, that I couldn't do it. Then I found out the piece they wanted me to write was on the guy who filmed the documentary "God in the Box" So far what I know about it is he took a big box all over the country and had people go in it and talk about God, now if that's not the coolest thing I've heard I don't know what is. Can I bust out 1000 words on it, good God I hope so!

  3. If you want a second set of eyes when you're done, I'd be happy to volunteer (in my previous life I was a copywriter and editor).

    Good luck!

  4. See Em - you even have your very own personal/professional copywriter/editor - this was meant to be! Don't you think Darcy?

  5. You are a writer. You have this post and I read it. Your interesting and you write to be read. My background is in journalism and I must say you do a good job. Rule one .. which you do well is to write to be read. I suspect you'll have a tough time keeping the wds. to 1,000.
    On another note.. I have another day down. Peace in all things -

  8. SWEET! This is an honor for you. I would like to write a book but I too "am not a writer". If I would only take to heart what friends have told me, the book would be published now. We have so many great qualities and talents that we haven't tapped into but others can see them in us. Just from reading the stories on your blog here, you DO have very good writing skills. Go for it, Emily!
