Murder She Wrote - Script!

I am filming tomorrow, I dont have a tripod but I predict things will go swimmingly.
I thought before I post the final video I would post the script so everyone can have a read at it!

Angela Lansberry :)
And I wanna post it so it proves I wrote this! It took so long and at first I had no idea what to write but I had the murder she wrote theme in my head, and I am using it as part of it ;)

WOMAN

Hello, I am Helen Evans. A fresh pair of eyes can change content from being boring and flat to bright and inspiring.
What is the difference? (Pause for effect, waiting for a response from us.)
Passion. (Pause)
Sell your words. (Pause)
Take the initiative. (Pause)
Research what you’re writing about. (Pause)
Think about how you’d like to use the product. (Pause)
Why do you believe in it? (Pause)
What makes it special? (Pause)
Once you find the reason you believe in your cause, run with it. (Pause)
Let the copy write itself; don’t struggle trying to match up the features and the benefits – just write. (Pause)
Let opinions bleed onto the page. You can clean up the mess later – for now get that passion down on the page. (Pause)
