Paid to Write

I love to write. Since I was young I've always felt it was easier to get my thoughts out on a piece of paper, that's why I fell in love with blogging. It's a blank canvas to express my thoughts, ideas and emotions, I was hooked. I've revealed secrets and expressed my most honest thoughts in blog posts, hitting "publish" without thinking twice.
 
I've never been paid to write however, until now.
 
A few weeks ago I started doing PR and marketing for a race team here in Charlotte. All of the sudden I have deadlines and topics I have to write about. My "stories" are being distributed to people, lots of people, and it makes me nervous. I find myself double checking every single word and sentence.
Does it sound right? Did I miss anything? Are my facts correct?
 
I love that I'm getting paid to do something that I love, and I'm learning and being challenged daily. I'm finally in a place in my career that I've always wanted to be, and because of that, work has been my number one priority.
 
Learning balance is the next thing I'm working on, and I'll be back to blogging beauty finds and dating stories soon enough. For now though, I've got a few more press releases to focus on.
xoxo BRI
