For eight years I honed my mind with great literature, scholarly and critical articles about literature, folklore and a variety of other subjects such as ecology, French, geology, astronomy (I almost wrote astrology*, ha ha) and music. The past nine months I’ve been writing generic ads to recruit healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, physical therapists). What took eight years to sharpen into an intellectual weapon and creative tool, has now been undone in nine months of repetitive, useless use.
I’m so depressed today. And I broke my little promise to write about ‘thinking outside the box.’ Check back tomorrow.
*Case in point.
