I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve developed a certain writing style here on BrainFuel. You could almost call it a tone or way of writing.
I think that’s ok.
There’s a place for every type of writing style and some things call for their own. A personal journal written for friends should be different than what I write on a semi-corporate blog.
“If I miss the meeting you can have my firstborn.”
It was an awkward moment when my client said that. He had missed two previously scheduled meetings and I was berating him for his apparent lack of respect for my schedule even after I had confirmed the meetings the same day they were to happen. Then he throws this bomb into the conversation.
“Huh? You’re firstborn?”
Good thing he doesn’t have kids.
