Hi, my name is Orion "STARB0Y" Petitclerc, and I am a freelance writer. I specialize mainly in creative fiction and nonfiction writing, from fictional stories of varied genres to professional news/website articles and reviews. I also possess some experience and interest in general editing, from proofreading to copyediting, and have beginners-to-intermediate knowledge of style guides including Associated Press and Chicago. I am also a hobby artist, possessing 9+ years experience mainly in character design and development, with some experience in color theory, composition, photo editing, 3D design, and storyboarding. I possess a range of experience in the following programs: Microsoft Word and Excel, CeltX, Adobe Photoshop (CS3), Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XL2, and Sculptris.
On Freelanced, I am interested in jobs and gigs ranging from writing to editing in non-technical fields. I am an experienced, published writer with a specialty in "geek" topics, especially comic books and graphic novels. I also have publications in other topics, including human interest and education. I also have some editing experiences in a few college publications. Please see below for a list of my publications, all of which can be found and read online.
I look forward to working with you and providing excellent written and edited material.
