    I have extensive experience writing short stories (over 300) and also novels and screenplays. I have excellent grammar skills and work well with deadlines. I type an average of 80 WPM. I'm familiar with Microsoft Excel, Outlook, and Word, as well as Photoshop. I have experience with several blogging platforms such as wordpress and blogspot. I am experienced in creating ebooks for sales on kindle, as well as creating PDFs. I've worked a large variety of jobs and done a lot of traveling (mostly Europe, Asia, and the United States), therefore I have a lot of different areas to pull from when writing. I speak, write, and read a high level of French and have taken Translation courses in the past. I'm interested in translating French to English as well as independent writing for all kinds of needs. I'm very flexible and dedicated to finishing commitments.  less
