I’ve got another post up on Medium.com, about my first job. Click here to read it.
The post was in response to Medium’s writing prompt and is one of the few thing I’ve ever written to deadline. I found out about the prompt on Monday night and had to post by Thursday morning. I gave myself a 1,000 word limit (an arbitrary number), trying to avoid my writing being its usual flabby self. My first draft was 2,000 words. I enjoyed chopping it down, paragraphs at a time, then going through word by word to get it down to 1K. Shame it’s pish.
