Welcome! My name is Melanie Glinsmann. I am a writer and business professional from Lincoln, Nebraska.
My background includes a Bachelor’s degree in education and a Master’s degree in English. But like many with humanities degrees, I work in a corporate office behind cubicle walls. I have learned a lot about people through my time as a business professional, and these insights lend themselves to my writing. I write fiction (currently working on a young adult novel) and non-fiction. I write about my observations of life inside the corporate world, along with my experiences as I continue to develop my skills as a fiction writer.
When I’m not working my bill-paying job or writing, you can most likely find me cheering on my favorite sports teams, listening to Irish/Scottish music, or talking to my cat.
My goal with this blog is to encourage others like me — people with creative passions who are working in the business world — to continue to find ways to pursue their creative interests, both in the office and outside of it. You don’t have to give up your creative passions when you walk through the office doors.
