    My goal in life is to find satisfying work doing something I enjoy while being at home with my kids. I am a great writer with excellent English grammar and spelling skills. I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and getting better every day. I recently finished my Associates Degree in Business and just started my bachelors in Journalism and Mass Communications. I am a quick learner and a very hard worker. Some of my specialties are gardening, animals, (especially pets), arts and crafts, and teenagers. I am very adept at research for almost any subject. I am currently only accepting fixed price projects as I have a hectic and tight schedule and am only able to work part-time. The more research involved, the more I will request in payment and vice versa. My starting rate is $1 for 100 words.  less

    In a market filled with people claiming skill of putting words "on paper", you need to ask yourself what you really want from a writer. I love language and it's use in communicating ideas in a way that they stay with people. I enjoy creative and challenging projects. When it comes to editing my goal is to ensure that your piece looks and sounds it's best. What does all of this mean for you? In short your not just another $dollar sign$. Your project will be handled with creativity, attention to detail, and enthusiasm. English is my native language and I can write in both UK and American styles. A lower price tag often means a job that while need done twice and many time I am hired to redo the work of others who were hired at a lower cost first. Why not save the trouble and hire me to do it right the first time? My experience includes: *Creative Writing - Fiction and Non Fiction *Editing *Proof Reading *Create Space Publishing *Video Production *Video Editing *Photography *Photo Editing *Ghost writing *eBooks *Article writing/editing *Transcribing *SEO *Public Speaking *Teaching *Administrate tasks I can quickly learn new skills and adapt old ones to new purposes. If you need something not mentioned above ask me about it any way, I may be able to accommodate you.  less
