I am an exceptionally talented, professional-minded individual with a particular passion for creative writing, fictional writing, and poetry. I LOVE TO WRITE and am more than capable of producing excellent work regardless of the topic, no matter how boring. However, I am quick-witted and love an opportunity to incorporate humor and silliness into writing whenever possible or appropriate. I am the complete opposite of pretentious. I am not fool enough to believe everything I write is perfect; although I am somewhat of a perfectionist. However, I am fairly thick skinned. I can take constructive criticism, and I keep my mind open to ensure I do not miss the perfect opportunity. In addition to my 20 plus years experience in an administrative office support role, the most recent 8-10 years have included self-employed part time, providing personal resume services, tailor-made and uniquely designed in an effort to showcase not only the qualifications and achievements of each client, but also their personality. I do not have anything published with my name attached, although I have been involved in a ghostwriting capacity. I have written hundreds of poems, numerous short stories, and am currently (yet slowly) working on my own fiction novel. I welcome and will consider any writing assignment and am happy to provide writing samples if requested.
