One day, I joke about giving Matilda a promotion.
Later the same week, I'm offered a promotion.
No, seriously. I have too much shame to make up lies that transparent.
You're looking at the new Creative Services Segment Manager. I'm a promotions strategy and initiatives leader! (I have my chest all puffed out when I say that.)
I'm excited. And a little conflicted, because for 90% of my professional life I've defined myself as a writer, and now writer is gone from my title. I'm in a new box on the org chart. I'm outside the writer/designer "talent pool." I report to my former boss' boss. I'm not so much writing anymore, I'm strategizing. I'm liasing. And I don't know what any of that means!
I need to go cast on for a new sweater...
