Hello! I’m Jennifer and sometimes I get a little obsessed about BSOz (that would be bright . . . shiny . . . objects). The best therapy for me–i.e. channeling my rampant enthusiasm–is to make, share, or write about said BSOz. With Chasing Bright Shiny Objects I might actually be tackling those alternatives simultaneously. As my lovely father is wont to say, “Now you’re cooking with gas!”in tribute to my efficient thinking. (Hey, he’s in his nineties–he can get away with cliches.)
My writing life began in high school when I found myself appointed the beat reporter for my Catholic girls’ school at the local newspaper. Sadly, I earned no Pulitzer Prizes for covering the annual Christmas pageant, but I did gain confidence as my English teacher/editor deployed her red pencil less and less as my writing stint progressed. Turns out writing is my career currency, sometimes in-house for publicity roles and other times, as a freelance feature writer. Stepping into the blogosphere almost five years ago with the launch of the collective blog See How We Sew gave me the chance to write in my own voice. With Chasing Bright Shiny Objects I am going solo!
