MyWork MyWords is a place where you can tell it like it is, in your own words; good writing appreciated but not essential. This area of the site is not about poetry. We are interested in what you do, what your experiences are and how you feel. Don’t worry about style or grammar, no fancy writing needed; use sentences, phrases, bullet points; good language, bad language, the language of home and of work.
