Hi there! I'm Delany, aka "ThatWordChick". I've always been in love with the written word, devouring books whole from a very young age. I enjoy quirky humor, a la Dave Barry, and have been known to pen odd haiku odes to breakfast cereals and skee ball. I like to wrestle with strange genres like 55 Fiction to challenge my brain.
Creatively, I like to think of myself as the oil-streak-faced mechanic in the belly of a starship, frantically welding things together with solder made from chewing gum and pen caps in a last ditch effort to save an intergalactic mission. I find this more motivating than deadlines on a calendar, and heck...half the fun of being a writer is being slightly unhinged from reality, in my opinion.
I've been writing freelance for over a decade now, and enjoy it immensely. I've worked hard and have been rewarded with 5-star status on Textbroker, Zerys, Writer Access, HireWriters and (now-defunct) MediaPiston. I specialize in product descriptions, but I can and will write almost anything, with a portfolio that spans from adult novelties to wine bottle gift baskets.
My work has been in some magazines, a handful of major retail sites, catalogs and here and there and, of course, around the internet. Past clients include Sears, Target, Walmart, Toys 'R Us, and Overstock.com.
Information on Payment
Please note that I DO NOT work for less than .05/word, meaning that your rate must be - at least - $5/100 words for me to consider taking a job - I feel that my skill and attention to detail warrants this price. I prefer to work for a flat rate per word, as opposed to an hourly rate, but I am happy to adjust my rate and submit manual "hours" accordingly to match our pre-determined rate.
I understand there are a lot of overseas writers on here that will take fractions of a cent per word, but bear in mind you'll get what you pay for. For those considering that, consider this: most of my steady work is fixing the work that those low-cost writers churn out.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to connecting and working together!
