    Whether you need formal documentation of your company's processes and procedures, or business content for your website or blog, or a simple quick-start guide for using a new system, perhaps I am the writer you have been looking for. U.S. English is my native language and I have been using my skill and gift as a "wordsmith" for 30+ years in technical, business and creative areas where the written word is needed to communicate information to others. My core talent is the ability to create clear and concise content for external clients and internal staff and co-workers. For the past 3+ years, I wrote reference and operations manuals for new franchisors. I am also a skilled proofreader and editor. I am a very detail-oriented writer regarding proper grammar, usage, punctuation and clarity. Further, I am well aware of factors that influence the readability (formatting, spacing, use of attributes, document layout, etc.) of a document/manual. Tools I have used include: MS Word (Advanced), Sharepoint (Intermediate), Adobe Acrobat (Intermediate), and WordPress (Basic). Samples of my work are readily available in the Portfolio section of my oDesk profile. Others can be provided on request.  less
