I am a writer, poet and editor in the top 1% of Elance providers in Writing, Vocabulary, and English Skills. "Connieshade did an excellent job of editing my manuscript and improving the flow. She also gave me great advice on how to make the beginning and end of my novel much stronger. I feel good about publishing my book now that she has gone through it -- and has written a great book jacket for the back cover. RC feedback

Service Description

My broad and diverse work background offers you the following:

1> Applied Mythology: storytelling, seeing and amplifying the human truths contained in a story, and how they can be applied to our lives today.
2> Accounting: a stickler for accuracy.
3> Writing and editing: the best grammar, sentence structure, and use of words to evoke the desired reader response.
4> Nature photography: attention to both detail and the bigger picture.

As a versatile, experienced editor and proofreader of academic articles and fiction, my goal is achieving accessibility to the widest audience. As an intuitive writer and editor, I am adept at ascertaining and assuming my client's voice for autobiographical pieces and poetry, as well as informative articles on a wide variety of subjects: art, literature, myth, psychology, nature, and spirituality. For texture and spice, add accounting, retail, and nature photography background to the mix.
Poetry on Demand - I write custom, highly personalized poetry suitable as gifts for special occasions and recognitions - birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, to name a few.
