I possess an intense passion for writing. Words come together on paper and I just get lost in this world where letters are the only things that make sense to me. It's like a high I'm on and I'm floating. The words are my drug of choice and I'm searching for my ultimate fix. I started writing at the tender and innocent age of 11 and the feeling was exhilirating. I was first noticed by my 6th grade teacher and she encouraged me to keep writing and to never stop. By the time I was 13, I was hustling my work to other classmates and soon word spread throughout my entire school. Needless to say, I began to make some money from my sells. That was the beginning of really seeing who I was as a person because words have a way of doing just that. I take extreme pride in my work.

Lancaster gregblancaster@hotmail.com Experience Crossroads Custom Writing Spokane, Washington Owner/President Proposal, Technical, Grant Writing (2010 to Current) For companies who need contract custom writing; or for nonprofit and for-profit entities looking for grant writing, research, evaluation, Crossroads Writing and Editing Service is an economic method to augment your staff. I offer 32 years of professional writing and editing experience. I will come to your place of business to manage sensitive steps in document creation. My research and interview skills are strong, and I can "pull" the necessary information to create a variety of document forms (e.g., manuals, proposals, grants, marketing material, public relation releases, master degree theses, or doctoral dissertations).
