I pride myself in my writing ability. That said I often circle around my point, and over-romanticize a bit as well. I'm noticing that this has gotten me into trouble, particularly so as I attempt to negotiate with new clients. I've been told more than once that I'm pompous, pedantic, etc. and I honestly think that my writing style is the culprit.

I'd like a grammar genius to edit a few bio and profile descriptions on an as needed basis. I'm not interested in anybody that isn't at the very least enrolled in a full-time PhD program at an accredited university here in the USA.

No MA candidates or High School teachers need apply. Thanks in advance.
