I shouldn’t blog because I’m not a writer.
At least that’s what one creative director told me 20 years ago when I expressed interest in moving from the account management side of advertising to try my hand at copywriting. He told me there are two types of people—creative and account, noting that if it wasn’t clear that I was a creative, I wasn’t. And I should leave the writing to the creatives. Now, he may not have said it that way, but that was my takeaway.
Well, guess what? I am writing and that makes me a writer. Therefore, I am a creative. So I will write this blog afterall.
