Business descriptions don't match what I do

None of the business categories available in Google MyBusiness fit my business. I'm a writer and editor, but neither of these are included in Google's business types. So I'm stuck with the extremely vague business descriptor: consultant. How can I get Google to add categories that fit my business?

 

It would be great to see some options for us literary folks. Including business categories for writer, editor, copywriter, and proofreader would be a great place to start.

I escalated it as a FR to Google ( # 391)

Does anyone know how long it will take Google to create new business descriptors? I'd really love to be able to build an accurate business profile. Is there a way I can override the system and write in my own description?

Thank you for your help. Do you know how long it might take to get a response from the Google folks?
