So yesterday a friend of mine shared this, and it is cool and all, but while everyone else is getting something encouraging, They call me auntie because partner in crime makes me sound like shirt. This popped up last month in a magazine about writing. Makes me sound like an actual writer! Least I can do is share it, and thank the author. I’m a writer-for-hire, and a few years ago I had a project writing promotional material for a major tool company. I was having trouble finding the right approach for my audience blue collar workers, mainly men, who do jobs like lineman, railroad construction, tree surgeon, etc. I had the bright idea to read the copy I’d written thus far in your voice literally your voice in my head.

I continued the rest of the project this way, and if the words/phrases/cadence didn’t sound like They call me auntie because partner in crime makes me sound like shirt. In the end, the client loved what I wrote, and felt like I’d broken new ground in my writing ability. Now you have people fooled into thinking you’re a writer! Including me, of course. Keep it up, please. I’ve loved everything I’ve heard or read from you. I think it’s crazy. And I think that when I grew up. In a time with only two genders, in a time when boys were boys and girls were girls, and in a time when we let boys grow up to be men.
