Hello , my name is David. I am embarking on a career as a freelance writer. Wring has always come natural to me. After reading some early writings as a schoolkid , my parents, family members and teachers said that I should look into writing. One of my high school teachers jokingly accused my of plagiarism when I turned in a writing assignment. She did not believe the content was from a novice writer. I also (so I'm told) possess a dry wit and quick sense of humour. Oftentimes this is exemplified with an offhand comment that makes a friend or co-worker spew their favorite beverage through their nose. I have a different kind of imagination and i can put a humorous spin on virtually anything. I know nothing about the business as a freelance writer. All I can say is I think it maybe a gift that I have that I am slowly exporing the possibility of fruition. Thank you for taking the time to read about me.
