A film magazine editor has taken to calling me ‘Eagle Eye’ for meticulously picking up his typos. This is like that time an entire office nicknamed me Words Joseph. Some random person (not in on the lingo) would be like ‘hey Sheree’, and I wouldn’t answer, too busy writing 50,000 words a minute.
The Creative Director would call out ‘Hey Words, someone is talking to you’.
‘Yeah what, need some copy written, what do you need, no worries I can do that *types really fast* HERE YOU GO, IT’S DONE!’
I miss being a copywriter, back when words were everything.
