The worries of a copywriter

Worries? Of a copywriter?

You bet. Though shamefacedly first world problems. There – now I have to add to my worries: Appearing too shallow when there’s so much strife in the world.

Here’s an account of my worries. Consecutive days last week.

Day One

No work is coming in. Some pending, waiting for full brief. Nothing much else on the horizon. What am I going to do? Try as I might to catch up on other things – like shampooing the front lawn, my own writing, teaching the chickens table manners, promoting Of Night and Light, making jams and chutneys like a Real Housewife and similar – my mind is full of worries about my career, the bank balance, the future, so I can’t concentrate…

And as John Ortberg Jnr. once said, believe me, “Worrisome thoughts reproduce faster than rabbits…”

Don’t they just?

Day Two

Oh my goodness! A sudden influx of work. Mostly urgent. Some quite challenging, much needing a lot of research and definitely requiring me to wear my sensible head. What am I going to do? There simply aren’t enough hours in the day. My head is already spinning and I’ve only had three cups of coffee. How am I going to find time to do all the other important things in my life?  – like shampooing the front lawn, my own writing, teaching the chickens table manners…and similar. My mind is full of worries, so I can’t concentrate…

And as Justin Halpern’s dad once said, believe me, “You worry too much. Eat some bacon…what? No, I got no idea if it’ll make you feel better, I just made too much bacon.” 

SO…
