A great writer is someone who:
Reads great writing.
Writes every day.
Writes in several genres.
Asks good questions.
Places a high value on communication.
Loves to write.
I am an experienced, published writer working from a well equipped, organized home office. I use a laptop and a desktop computer, a good pinter/fax/scanner, a speaker phone, and recorder. I'm set up and backed up.
Although trained in the Elements of Style, and the good old five-paragraph essay, I love this digital media, too! I understand the importance of writing captivating articles which include appropriate keyword density and other SEO tools. Too often I come across web articles in which key words and phrases are glaringly obvious. My goal for guiding folks to your website is to provide content which is actually interesting, making you look good with fluid and relevant copy.
I'm proud of my work and pay serious attention to detail and thoroughness. When you hire me, you get ME -- not someone outsourced from India or Ukraine, and not someone I work with. I'm the writer here.
My work is who I am, and represents me (unless I'm lucky to meet you in person some day) so you will always get my best. I have the utmost respect for your bottom line. I understand that you can choose a different writer at any time. I want to be someone you rely on in the future.
I'm comfortable writing in MANY GENRES:
Feature articles (people and events)
