    Hi, I'm Aks and I like writing. Here's a summation of my writing. My focus is fictional writing, cliffhangers, scenes which give a chill to the spine, stories which pull people in etc. I also write non-fiction articles, reviews, thoughts, opinions, summations, those are sort of my favorite things to write about. If you need any of those send me a message on skype: "aksentijek" and we can chat. Don't let money be a concern. I'm more interested in the experience, but the money doesn't hurt either. P.S. To check out my style of writing in general, feel free to visit http://www.bubblews.com/account/110247-revan for a preview. It isn't exactly how I write for a job but it should give you an idea of the way of my free-spirited writing and letting my mind drift.  less
