I fell in love with the craft of copywriting on the very first day.
This was in the early 1980s, when I had just started work at a small ad agency in London.
My idea of a fun evening was to stay up late, studying the work of the copywriters I admired most.
I’d read their ads out loud, and write then down in longhand… pen on paper.
The process helped me feel the rhythm and flow of their writing, and taught me a lot.
