Respect for the interpretive writer … Oh yes!

I love mentoring, helping people develop skills that work and help them do their jobs better.  Most of all I love those penny dropping moments – like this one, in an e-mail from one of my clients today, on the realities of producing good interpretive writing. Yes, it takes time and trouble. Welcome aboard.

The scripts will be along soon I promise – I underestimated the time needed for this work.  I know already you will say the xxx text is too long and too wordy – but the challenge is  giving justice to the story! I have new found respect for any piece of interpretation I come across with a word count of 300 or less … Feels like I am climbing a  mountain sometimes in a fog! The good news is I’m nearly at the summit [fingers crossed]

Don’t worry, she’s good and she’ll be fine.  I assured her I was waiting with my trusty (and metaphorical) snowshoes, mountain dog and brandy to see her and her text safe home.
