I haven't participated in self portrait tuesday for a couple of weeks, but I have an essay due in 25 hours and 40 minutes so it's time to bake a cake (date and walnut 'Five Cup Cake'), play with the ping on people's email, and mess around with the camera.
The dream ...
... and the reality.
Most of the paid jobs I have held have involved writing. But not quite the kind of writing I dream about.
I have written ads for a winery, copy for K mart catalogues ("nice and cheap!"), window blinds, skin care products and radio ads for soap operas.
I have produced reports, newsletters, articles, and done the desktop publishing for a small feminist literary magazine.
Currently, I write essays for my degree, nonsense for a blog, and minutes from meetings to earn a buck or three.
I dream that one day, I will write like Mr Bryson.
