    I am a university graduate with a BSc. in Psychology and a focus in neuroscience. In addition to this, I currently work part-time at my university as a writing tutor and a teaching assistant. These jobs mean that I work primarily with academic writing, but I have an interest in creative writing and a flexible writing voice. I am an excellent proofreader and editor, and a flexible writer for creative and nonfiction work. Editing is my current area of interest on Odesk, although I am also able to complete work in other areas. I can edit both content and grammar/sentence structure, making me a valuable hire for both native speakers who wish to improve their writing to a higher quality, as well as for non-native speakers who are more concerned with the structural and grammatical format of their writing, Follow me on Twitter @BriallynS  less

    I have been involved in all sections of the educational field, secondary and tertiary, as a teacher and as administrator. I am an avid reader of a multitude of genres and a writer of non fiction material. Added to this, I am also a proof reader and editor. Yes I have a large skills base, but then I am no spring chicken! I am fluent in two languages, with English being my home language and the one I am most comfortable using. Due to family commitments, I have been out of the job market for the last four years. However, with children all grown and finally living their own lives, I have decided to get the brain cells into motion again, doing what I love best: being involved in an area that uses words! As a result, I have decided to offer my services as a freelancer, affording me the opportunity to work in the most relaxed atmosphere possible which is my own home, and supplying a professional service at the same time. I have written various eBooks and done a plethora of editing and proof reading for clients on Odesk in the short while I have been here. Most of my clients do not close the contracts due to them asking to be able to use my services at their convenience at any given time. (That sentence can lead to all kinds of conclusions but let us stick to the professional Odesk one please!) I like to stay in constant communication with my clients as I complete a project. Transparency is important to me.  less

    Some say I’m eloquent with words. That they feel leaves crunching, waters gushing as they read through. And that is one type of people I come across. Some say I am the best tech-writer they've always searched for. And that they love my articles. Android, iOS and Windows, whatever they name, they get it. It could be a smartphone, a new tablet or a whole new gizmo. They say they want me to be the ambassador between them and the gadgets. That is the second type of people. I don’t know what to say. Guess I've a thing for words. As long as they love my words, I write. As I've always been.  less

    Don’t let the title mislead you. As the Merchant of Words, I’m not related to the Merchant of Venice. To be honest, Shakespeare never appealed to me. Neither did academics. Thus, I just about managed to complete my schooling – or let’s just say that my teachers got fed up of me. After all, I was an immense strain on their conscience. It couldn’t have been easy deciding where I deserved fractional marks for an answer i.e. a 0.3 here or a 0.6 there etc., could it? Suffice it to say that my academic success in school resembled a village after a Mongol raid. A few years later, I began working as a software developer. In that time, I learnt that I could create software for an accounting system. Considering that all I knew about accounting was the definition of debit and credit, it was an educational achievement on the job. I also learned how to travel to various parts of the city. An online job that taught me several offline things! Later, I found myself applying for an executive position to answer e-mail queries sent by Amazon.com’s customers. However, the powers that were thought I was a glutton for punishment. Therefore, they made me a Quality Editor instead. I handled the responses for the escalation e-mail queues. I also trained and audited e-mail responses for 15 executives. A relocation ended this brief but enlightening dalliance. My next assignment was as a back office executive in insurance processing. I processed transactions related to insurance cover. In some time, my supervisors realised that my innocent smiles (certainly not my good looks!) lay behind all their troubles. So they gave me charge of a team, of a process and of a client relationship too. From indexing scanned images of insurance claims related post to recovering money from at-fault third parties, my team did it all. Sadly, they also did me in… I finally turned to becoming a freelance content developer: writing about things I hadn’t heard of or seen, for clients I hadn’t ever seen (or ever would, for that matter!) at places I didn’t even know existed. After such an extensive background, can I really write? Well, in over 16 years of experience that is the only thing I’ve done. See how: • As a software developer, I WROTE computer programs and manuals • As a quality editor, I WROTE e-mails and responses • As an executive in back office processing, I WROTE manuals, desktop procedures and white papers • As a team leader, I WROTE policies, manuals, emails, white papers etc. • As a content developer, I WRITE articles, blogs, website content, product descriptions etc. So what’s common across: softWare – auditOr – data-entRy – team leaDer and writing Stuff fulltime? The answer is simple: All of them deal in WORDS…that express what needs to be done in the best way possible…  less
