It’s been a crazy few weeks. I expect to be back in full force next week, however here’s something to tide you over in the meantime (click on the image to see the full history of the ampersand—my favorite character).
I began my freelance journey in January of 2010 after spending years dabbling and reading every book on freelancing I could find (for a list of the books I recommend, see here).
Yet again I had picked up a book on freelancing–How to Start a Home-based Writing Business, by Lucy Parker–only this time I decided to actually do the things it recommended. And thus my business was born.
Jargon is terminology which is especially defined in relationship to a specific activity, profession, or group…In other words, the term most often covers the language used by people who work in a particular area or who have a common interest (from Wikipedia).
To me, jargon represents the idea of an exclusive club, a group of people who have had to develop a shared but uncommon vocabulary in order to communicate on a professional level. I want to break into that club.
