    If you're looking for a writer who writes in a well structured, clear and concise manner with a dash of creativity then I'm the one you're looking for. I am an extremely patient and detail oriented person, mainly because I am a perfectionist when it comes to writing. I am great at editing and go with my gut feeling on a piece because the words on paper have to look and feel a certain way. I love words and nothing makes me happier than finishing a piece which is beautifully written and nothing is more important than making sure that your vision and message comes alive through my words. I have been writing for as long as I can remember, everything from short stories, diary entries to rhyming poetry. I have an Honours Degree in Political Science and writing papers on politics and history taught me the importance of being able to summarize long essays and chapters into simple but meaningful and important concepts. As I entered the professional world I was thrilled to be able to put my writing skills to good use through writing reports, translating documents, writing job descriptions, company policies and procedures etc. But I missed being able to let my imagination run wild so I enrolled myself in a few courses and am currently working towards getting a certificate in Creative Writing while I try my hand at writing my first novel. The best part of the certificate course is the ability to explore my creative side and express it through my writing.  less
