For as long as I can remember I have always been told I have a natural aptitude for writing. I accredit most of this to my love of books and reading, and from an early age I would devour page after page of stories. As a teenager, my aunt bought me a book entitled "Becoming a Writer" which is still on my bookshelf today. They say everyone has a book in them and whilst I am still waiting to find mine, it is definitely on the "to-do" list!
As an adult I have tried a number of different career paths, but never found anything that felt quite right. After having my eldest daughter I gave up work for a number of years and in 2008 chose to work towards obtaining a degree. Over the next 6 years I completed different modules including Children's Literature, Myth in the Greek & Roman Empire, Linguistics and more, combined with getting married and adding to our family. In 2014 I was ecstatic to graduate having achieved Upper Second Class Honours in Humanities from the Open University.
So how did I end up here? I'm not usually one for New Year's resolutions, if I make a commitment then I stick to it regardless of when I start. However in early 2015 I decided that perhaps I should see if writing had been my calling all along. Thanks to some advice from a wonderful and highly talented freelance writer and photographer friend of mine (Tom I still owe you that dinner if you are ever over in the UK!!) I decided to take the plunge and start freelance writing.
Needless to say that things took off pretty quickly, and in April 2015 I set up DMPrimett Writes. I am lucky enough to work alongside some incredible clients in a variety of industries from digital marketing agencies to maintenance contractors to coaching and training businesses. Writing across such a wide spectrum of clients fulfils my thirst for knowledge as I learn something new on every job that I do, and I love nothing more than taking their specifications and concepts and turning them into a reality.The buzz that comes from brainstorming new ideas and possibilities is one that cannot be replicated, and I treat each project with the dedication and passion it deserves. I am one of the lucky ones - I can honestly say I really do love my job!
