Attention to detail births masters. Fluff births questionmarks. In my freelance and staff-based experience, there have been many wisdoms; the most significant of them coming from the least expected events. My syllabus has bestowed 'pon me, a sharp lense. Clear writ with striking subtlety is my magik. I'm an open sort, in the way of literary experimentation. I respect the quality a project is due, communicate opening agreements well, and deliver to deadline. My compensation, disincluding probono work for grassroots endeavors and the occasional program stipend, is 3 cents per word. In the case of bulk assignments, and my availability, the rate is negotiable from 2 - 2.5 cents per word for very large projects. Graphic design projects are negotiated based upon the extensiveness of the projects, and the current schedule.
