Jenn's Hopefully This Isn't Shitty Writing Project

About Me 

Project 2 – Lesson 13 

"Hi, I'm Jenn. For so many years I was intimidated by what I thought it meant to be a professional writer, so I wrote in a way that was probably really boring to read and inaccessible to most people.

During that time I still kept a blog that I wrote my true thoughts in, in my own words, and people really responded to that style of writing, versus the feedback I got from my content at my day job.

Over time I’ve found that I’ve been able to blend my voice with the message I’m tasked with delivering, in a way that allows me to stay true to myself and people still seem to enjoy."

#Identify yourself

Hi, I'm Jenn.

#Struggle

For so many years I was intimidated by what I thought it meant to be a professional writer, so I wrote in a way that was probably really boring to read and inaccessible to most people.

#Discovery

I still kept a blog that I wrote my true thoughts in, in my own words, and people really responded to that style of writing, versus the feedback I got from my content at my day job.

#Result

Over time I’ve found that I’ve been able to blend my voice with the message I’m tasked with delivering, in a way that allows me to stay true to myself and people still seem to enjoy.

Short Sales Letter 

Project 1 – Lesson 5 

Buy my Jeezeep!

Isn’t she pretty? That’s a deep green color, actually.

Not black or navy, as it sometimes seems. It’s actually called Deep Beryl Green Pearl™ typical of the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4.

Which is the car that was chosen for me, by my ex-fiance, just four short years ago.

It was the classic tale of pregnant fiancee hates mini-vans, yet fiance thinks mini-vans are ironically funny, so we settled on a Jeep.

Flash forward to 2013, four years later, and I have the kid, the Jeep, the debt but not the fiance.

I have no idea why I’ve kept it for so long, but in an attempt to cut my losses I’m now selling this car that I hate.

The things that I do love about this Jeep are:

  • It’s like a mini-tank. Super sturdy. Super reliable.
  • It’s mid-size so parking is not impossible. I can parallel park this bitch like no other.
  • It has a tow package so moving cross-country or just hauling stuff across the mountains is nbd.

Also, I’m an obsessive car-washer, judgmental NON-SMOKER, and constant interior cleaner.

That being said, I do have a four year old, so the interior could use a quick vacuum/spot check. I do those on the regular, but haven’t had the chance to do one since May.

This Jeezeep is free of major mechanical problems but may need a tune-up soonish. Despite our love-hate relationship, I’ve only ever had to recharge the air-conditioning and replace the brake rotors and pads (basically I've kept up the normal maintenance stuff – I mean, I drive my kid around in this thing, c'mon).  

She has a couple of dings. There’s a slight dent on the driver’s side nose, where someone victimized my poor car in the mall parking lot (jerks).

And then there’s a ding on one of the passenger side doors from a situation that I’m not sure I got the truth about, involving my ex-fiance.  

My car also has a clean title history, with some service records available, and will pass all your safety and smog inspection needs.

So, if you’re willing to swap around $8000 American dollars to trade places with me, and call this thing your ride... call me at 555-555-5868 to check her out OR respond to this email address.

P.S. She really is a very good car. Her only true downfall is having a scornful owner who views her as a red-headed stepchild.
