I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here, but I just changed jobs this week.Â Still working for a local interactive agency, but I’ve moved departments and more significantly, I’m no longer going to be doing project management-type work. I’ll be doing pretty much all copywriting, all the time.Â I moved my stuff from my old desk to my new one at the end of the day Friday and the new guy started working Tuesday.
A coworker came up to me today and said “You’re really moved, aren’t you?Â I just went by your old desk, and like, someone else sits there now…”Â We both just paused a moment to absorb the reality of my movedness.Â
I still have to train a couple of people in my previous department, but for the most part, I’m now a copywriter, not a copywriter/traffic coordinator.Â
And it came at a really good time, because the volume of copy that needs to be written at work has expanded rather alarmingly lately.Â Which is excellent–I love job security and we’re getting some pretty cool projects in.Â But it’s a little intimidating.Â
On a related note, Friday marks the beginning of Script Frenzy, from the insane people that brought you National Novel Writing Month.Â I’d actually prefer to do SF than NaNoWriMo for a few reasons:Â first, because the big project that’s been floating in my head a while is really more dialogue-driven (and thus better suited to a screenplay) and second, because June is a much better time of year for me to write myself into a catatonic state than November.Â
