I do a lot of b*tch work, but sometimes I write advertorials/lifts and I even edit sales pages now and then for our newer guys.
When I took the job, I told them my goal is to be an in-house writer here and they told me this could be a reality. Last week, the Copy Chief told me he is going to start sitting down with me one hour per week so I can transition to writing full sales packages one day.
He said we'll do whatever I want for that hour.
Now, obviously I was ecstatic because I never thought that would actually happen. But I'm also dumbfounded...I have no idea how I should make the best use of this time?
My current idea is to have him give me a lead assignment, and I'll write a 4-5 page lead in my spare time. And then we will spend the hour each week adjusting it. But I wanted to reach out to my friends on WF to see if they have better ideas than that.
