Ever felt like you're completely lost as a writer and have no idea what you're supposed to be doing?
I can relate.
See, that was me just a few years ago.
I'd tried being a teacher, and the two years I'd spent doing it had taught me something.
I really had no business being a teacher.
I wanted to write, but I wasn’t sure how to make a living doing it. I had no experience. I had only a vague inkling of what a copywriter even was.
I had no idea what I was doing. But now fast forward to the present. I regularly still don’t know what I’m doing. I'm not really sure if that's ever going to change.
But things have changed over the past few years. I've grown from an entry-level copywriter to become the chief marketing copywriter for Gradus Group LLC and an author of short fiction.
It's been a pretty fun journey.
And I've learned some cool stuff along the way. That’s what RE: Writing is all about.
The tips and tricks I learned to help you turn dry, lifeless words into powerful copy that works, told from a fresh and often humorous perspective, with the occasional musing on the side and a little dash of creativity thrown in with the mix.

Where Did RE: Writing Come From?
Legend has it that RE: Writing was discovered in an ancient Egyptian tomb.
The story’s a little fuzzy on who led the expedition and what time period it happened in,
but it seems that, somewhere in the Middle Ages, a team of explorers found an untouched tomb and decided to enter. After braving the obligatory amount of traps—just enough to say that this was a perfectly respectable tomb but not too much to be showing off—they reached a large chamber.
The chamber was filled with statues, all kneeling in supplication and facing a pedestal in the center. As they walked toward the pedestal, the air so quiet you could almost touch it, the hardened explorers grew humbled, awed by the sight of such abject servitude. When they reached the pedestal, a thousand torches suddenly sputtered to life in their sconces,washing the entire room in a brilliant glow.
The pedestal held a book. They opened it with trembling hands, treasures forgotten as they began to read. The book held secrets long forgotten and truths never revealed, told of answers to questions long thought unsolvable.It was a book of mysticism and magic, a book unlike any they had ever read.
Lying next to it on the floor, written on discarded scraps of paper, was RE: Writing.
No one’s certain what happened to that book of secrets. Some say the Templars, afraid of the effect the book could have on the world, hunted down and killed the explorers and burned the book with them. Others say a terrible storm unlike any ever recorded drowned their ship as they sailed home. There are even whispers of the undead, rising from their grave to drag the book and the explorers to the very depths of hell, there to stay for all eternity.
Whatever the case, it’s clear that the book was considered too valuable, its secrets too dangerous, to risk exposing to the world.
Apparently nobody shared those concerns about RE: Writing.
