Getting the juices flowing…

Posted by Katherine Stott In Careers & Writing | 2 Comments »
Nope, that is not as bad as it sounds :) 
I have just finished my first week at Quirk (albeit a 3 day week), and I can feel a part of me opening up to new ideas, new inspiration and a whole world of possibility. I feel as though I have been living the last few months under the impression that being creative was an automatic process. It has taken me 3 days to realise that my creative energy needs nurturing… it needs to be fed, to be taught. 
Why did I neglect this for so long?
The answer comes with a pointless discussion, but what better time to embark on yet another journey of self-discovery and exploration than the beginning of 2011? And what better place than in a small little society of incredibly talented little Quirkstars?
I’m so amped – I love my new job – this year is going to be bloody marvelous! Happy Belated New Year!

Writing is my drug… (Day 22 of the 30 Day Trial)

I just can’t get enough…. I just can’t get enough… All I need is 24-7 ADSL, a laptop with a little more memory than mine and I’d be raging through torrents of words, figures of speech and intricate little stories. I am completely addicated to forcing my opinion onto the world! hahahaha…. poor you. 
I also have so much to say, almost TOO much! I keep on getting lost in my train of thought because it keeps on branching out in so many directions. I’m feeling like I’m at the peak of my writing inspiration and yet I don’t know what to write about first; my fingers actually can’t keep up with my head! As I write this I just think of a caffeine addict who has actually passed the point of no return and is desperately trying to keep up with the intense speed and accelerated thoughts, but the damn fingers won’t keep up!

Maybe I have actually just had too much coffee. Hmmm……

Replace me? Never! (Day 17 of the 30 Day Trial)

I’ve been interviewing copywriters to replace me in my role at Stargaze, and today I think I found the perfect candidate. She is intelligent with a dry sense of humour, quirky and cool and she writes beautifully… The funny thing is that now through chatting to her about making an offer I am almost jealous that she is going to be filling up the space that I will leave… Weird? Or a natural reaction to the obvious loss I will feel after having been there for almost two years? 
I am so happy to be leaving and I know that the decision I have made is for my own personal growth… so why the envy? Maybe I want them to need me to the point of never being able to replace me? A nice smidgen of warmth for my ego, but the reality is that no one is indispensible. I know I am being ridiculous, and after I overcome the emotion of saying good bye to all my dear friends at work, I will more than likely be “over it”… Still, it is funny how the human mind and heart operate. Mine appears to be extremely confused and wants a little bit of everything for itself! Greedy guts…
