How can I turn the things I enjoy into a platform that people will want to connect with?

I lose my place from time to time. I forget that I have this space…designated just for me. So I leave, and I come back when I remember to unload all of the burdens my heart feels. I don’t talk about them often…or at least not like this because I never know how my friends or family will respond. I mean…I know how they’ll respond. By telling me that things aren’t that bad, that my life is full of blessings. And they’re right, it’s not and it is. Granted they don’t ever really say those words out loud…but they act as reminders that I shouldn’t be taking the time to write out these thoughts because maybe they aren’t valid.

I created documents that taught me a lot about the behind-the-scenes aspects of the field I want to work in and are also functioning documents with a clear purpose and audience and genre

I learned about different audiences I will be writing to such as coworkers and vendors and clients. I learned about different types of documents I will be drafting such as emails and new hire paperwork and employee handbooks. I’ve thought a lot about my purpose for writing. In HR I’ve learned that you often aren’t simply writing to communicate information but also obtain information from your audience. An engagement letter from a law firm is not simply for the purpose of expressing your terms to represent a client, you’re also seeking their approval and acceptance of the deal, you need the audience to sign and return the document. An employee handbook isn’t just a book of rules and procedures for employees to follow, it’s also a place to express expectations for the employees and the organization and also a place to let marginalized employees know they are protected and safe at your organization.
