At work, feeling more than invigorated and fiery with this promotion. Sales, selling, speaking… now everything culminates, much I hate that word. Getting done starting tasks, committing to 3000 observational words for and from day. Idea for day, Knowledge. Get to know the person in front of you, even if you already know them. Listen, listen more…. Study, again, observational.
At my desk, ready for the day in a way I’ve never been. But I calm, compose, collect, settle and assemble attitude and sight for what’s next, in next hour. Want to work in slowing down in idea delivery.
9:08. Writing notes to self and even more in exploratory mode, mood, mold. Drive down to SF, thinking, speaking into recorder. Envelope to tasting room, or just studio. Where I write and self-publish, blog and develop what I develop, bring more to life. Creative Room…. Just got a call from a scammer, claiming to be from the Social Security Administration. The recording claimed my number had been suspended due to suspicious activity. Wouldn’t a live person want to tell me that? I pressed one to speak to the next available “officer”. A gentleman came to the phone and asked for my name. I asked Shouldn’t you know that already? He said no. I said I’d wait for something in the mail. The guy then said he’d inform the sheriff and the arrest warrant would be issued have a nice day hang up. I turned off phone, and laughed my way back to my desk. I thought and am still thinking about it, from a writer’s perspective. Shouldn’t you write a better plan than that, a better script, story? And all due respect to scams stretching from other countries, don’t you think the accent kiiiiiiiiiiiiiind of gives it away? They’d benefit from my instruction, a small or larger writing seminar, creative writing effort and intensive for scammers. I wasn’t sold.
Then thinking came back to here, Sonic, selling and what I’m about to sell for the B2B division. Still laughing, and if I’m not arrested in the next couple hours, I’ll keep jotting jots on sales approach and tone, word selection and deployment.
