Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

I can write, edit, proofread, or rewrite your article, documentation, term paper, essay, resume, or non-fiction book. Depending on the genre, type of book and/or length, I can possibly help you with fiction as well. Depending on your needs (such as perhaps for a magazine article), I can also do some illustration, using watercolors, Copic markers, fine pens, etc.
Please note: my experience far exceeds what I have attached as examples, mostly because most of the writing, editing and proofreading I've done is not on the internet, and in...

Service Description

I've written numerous newspaper articles, a few magazine articles, and have written user documentation, technical and functional specifications, etc. for computer systems, including sometimes editing the writing of others' work on the same projects. I've also written numerous short stories, one of which is currently on a web site. I have good writing/editing/proofreading skills, and am capable of handling most writing projects.
I'm also a decent artist, and have worked with watercolors, fine pens, acrylics, oils, pastels, and block prints.
I am currently unemployed, because I'm back in school (after 25 years as a mainframe programmer), but am not in school this fall, so I have more time to freelance right now. I'd like to find enough freelancing work to be equivalent to a part-time job.
Update: because I've taken many science, medical and health courses this year, I can offer a bit more expertise there when it comes to writing, editing and proofreading health-related topics. I also know quite a bit about business, computers, art, books, cooking, environmental issues, travel, motorcycles, etc.
