The little word no
A week ago, I had an experience I can't explain. I had been asked to submit a proposal for a job as a copywriter doing book blurbs for a publisher. I felt flattered and understood the urgency to answer.
Yet, as soon as I started to look into their brief with information for the assignment, I instantly felt an almost body ache with a no. So, I questioned some of it and didn't get it, but happy to remain with the translation assignment I'm currently working on, where in fact I learn how a type of copywriting is developed in English.
But what's the reason? Too tiring? I have no idea, more than being asked is something I have a problem with. I rather take the initiative myself. It's the leader in me. I also learned some about book descriptions which I've applied to my own. Maybe to not help competitors? All I know my inner child didn't want to.
So, heading the no!
What do you want to say no to?
