"Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade, just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself."
— TRUMAN CAPOTE
Yes, Paige Worthy is my real name…And writing's my game.
But my parents didn’t give me this name knowing I'd become who I am today. I considered just about every other profession before I got here.
Since I graduated with my journalism degree in 2005, I've worked full time in newspaper editing, magazine writing and editing, and all kinds of marketing.
I'm the former director of client services for Landscape Leadership, an inbound agency for landscape contractors and green industry businesses. I spent just over two years there learning the ins and outs of agency life and working with our utterly delightful clients to strengthen their web presence and get them found by people who needed their services.
But these days, I'm back to running things myself — and loving all the freedom, flexibility and choice that comes with that. (I'm currently in denial about all the hard parts of running a business…more on that later.)
Paige Worthy a one-woman show, a ghost writer and copy editor to the stars (read: you)! Looking for help? Let's talk.
"Yes, but tell us about your LIFE."
What else, what else…
I can see the Brown Line from my apartment in Lincoln Square, on Chicago's north side.
I haven't owned a car since 2006.
Bears football gives me life and make me want to die, pretty much simultaneously — pretty much all the time.
I'm married to the biggest wine nerd in Chicago (he buys all the wine for Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, and you should visit him.)
We have two cats, and they are better than yours.
We could be friends, y'know.
Or Instagram (I hope you're hungry).
Or LinkedIn…if you're into that sort of thing.
