Let me tell you a story …

A long time ago I was a secretary, working in an office where people wrote memos, rather than e-mails, which were sent by internal mail. At that time I called my boss Mr Watson rather than Jim, although he used my first name.

Mr Watson would call me into his office daily to dictate the content of his correspondence which I took down in shorthand (I wrote 110 words a minute in my heyday).

Once I’d typed out my boss’ correspondence, I’d put it in between the blotting paper pages of a ‘signature’ book. He would sign his name in a florid style, before I sent the documents down to the post room for distribution.

 

My dressing up outfit is from Lovehoney (Dreamgirl Pinstripe Sexy Secretary).
Slipping into it and fastening my stockings to the suspenders, I grabbed my gold notebook (emblazoned with the logo ‘Bright Ideas’) and a pen to capture a few thoughts I’d had about stories I’m developing.

Nowadays to write, I sit down at my laptop (a neat little Chromebook). I type directly into a document, editing as I go. When I’m happy with it I copy & paste it into a new post of my blog. I  add my photos, links and tags then publish it from my blog – with never a need to print it on paper. I don’t need to ask anyone else to ‘sign off’. It’s my space, I can press publish.

I’m the boss now!

    I too like the convenience that tech brings to writing, but there’s a profound pleasure to ne had from taking time with pen and pencil.

      Thanks AM – you’re right, sometimes doing things the more traditional way brings its own satisfaction. I still enjoy writing my thoughts and points to jog my memory in pretty notebooks.
      It is indeed a cute/sexy dress up outfit – if you look at my post “waitress” you’ll see it has a cute frill at the back too. xx
