Hello, I am a self-directed individual who initiates opportunity, welcomes challenges as growth experience, and accomplishes desired and set goals in a timely manor. I have excellent written and verbal communication skills that allow me to confidently display a " can-do" attitude. With my advanced administrative skills and management skills, I achieve above and beyond what is expected. I believe in the value of strong work ethic. It is a lost art in society today. I profess a wide range of qualified skills that contribute to my career as a Creative Writer. Creative Writing has been my passion since childhood. As a young child, my earliest interest in writing began at age seven. Since that time, over the years I have perfected my craft. I have been writing well over 15+ years. Writing comes from within me and naturally. I have written over 1,000 poems; 500 Christian/Inspirational poems; 3 novellas; a handful of acts, plays and skits; 30 short stories; 100 children's poems; and currently am seeking publication of a children's book. I am also a musician, I play piano/keyboard. i am a singer/songwriter and have written over 200 song lyrics, 100 of those I have also composed melodies for. I am also an artist. I mostly paint impressionism and water color. My creative writing styles are broad and vast. I consider myself a "Jack-of-all-traits" who dares to be different and tends to think "outside-of-the-box".I am willing to compromise and negotiate for fair market value on some things depending on the circumstance. I believe in being upfront and honest. I have high work standards and always try to deliver 100% customer satisfaction. We all want or need something and proper handling of excellent business transactions is reaching an agreement. I believe in this upfront policy, so that all parties involved know what is expected. The services I provide are listed below: *Creative Writing: Fiction and Non-Fiction; *Photo-Journalism; *Photography; *Children's Books and Poetry; *Poetry Writing; *Freelance Writing; *Proofreading; *Editorial; *Research Papers and Reports; *Genealogy Charts, Graphs, and Trees; *Microsoft Office Programs and Applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint Presentations, etc; *Adobe Programs: Acrobat, Illustrator and Photoshop, etc; *Advanced Transcribing skills; *Documents, Letters, Legal and Medical; *Advanced knowledge of Medical Terminology and Health Sciences; *Public Relation Skills: Public Speaking, Fund-Raising, Management, etc; *Virtual Assistance; *Organizational Skills and Assistance; *Social Media Savvy; *Articles, Blogging, Copy Writing, Ghost Writing, Jingle Writing, and Journalistic; *Advertising and Marketing, Word Processing, Secretarial, Hospitality and Travel Writing; *Speech Writing; *Song Writing, Lyrics and Composing *Resumes and Cover Letters In addition to these Advanced skills pursued, I am currently interested in learning computer programming skills such as C++, Java, and Python. I believe in life long learning and maintaining skills that are needed to remain current in a changing society. I am a deep, philosophical thinker. I love to debate and converse over many subjects. I love History, Science, Culture, Design, Music, Art, Literature, Nature, Children and Animals. In the past I have work with children as a teacher, coach, instructor, mentor and leader. I have also worked with intellectually and/or physically handicapped children. Working with these special children has allowed me the humble lost art of human compassion. I have learned much more in return from them, then I have taught. My motto and philosophy in life is: YOLO - You Only Live Once. With that said, as a Christian, with GOD all things are possible and you are only as limited as the limits you put on yourself. Be all that you can be, keep on keeping on. March to the beat of your own drum with courage and confidence. If at first you don't succeed, try again. I don't compare myself to anyone. Only the best that I can be. I am a constant work-in-progress. If I am not then, I cannot move forward, and if I cannot move forward and am satisfied with where I am at; then I am not pursuing progress. Thank you for your time and consideration of my provided services, skills and talents. I look forward to your response and further discussing with you any inquiries, or comments. Sincerely, Lynlei

I love what I do and am very motivated to succeed, which is why I have been a successful professional freelance proofreader, editor and copy editor for 20 years. Because of my background in English skills, I am highly organized and detail-oriented in my work for the advertising industry, publishing industry, journalism and the field of education. My favorite work challenge was being hired to revitalize a poorly received and error-riddled university yearbook and newspaper. I trained the students on proofing for style, spelling, grammar and spelling and helped mold both into award-winning publications within a year. I conceived, developed and created the first proofreading/editing courses for a private university. In addition, I have edited hundreds of manuscripts—both fiction and nonfiction—mentored many writers into publication at major publishing houses (Simon & Schuster, Avon, Ballantine). I enjoy editing and have developed strong interpersonal skills through coaching students and dealing with administrators and my freelance clients. I’ve worked extensively with MS Word (Track Changes), as well as Adobe Acrobat—also the Chicago Manual of Style, AP, and MLA formats. I’ve done a great deal of online editing, copy editing and proofreading; I have an eagle eye for spotting mistakes—whether in syntax, word choice, typographics, spelling or grammar. As my own bestselling novel taught me, I can do just about anything I put my mind and passion to. •Genre Fiction •Nonfiction Books •Literary Fiction •Memoirs •Newspaper Articles •Short Fiction •College Papers •Marketing Pieces •Query Letters PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Freelance Editor Self-employed 1985-Present • Editing, copy editing, proofreading, consulting, mentoring Guided several writers to publication Senior Editor A-1 Editing Service 2007-Present • Editing, copy editing, writing novels and narrative nonfiction Private Writing Coach Self Employed 2006-Present •Mentored many writers to publication • Substantive editing • Proofreading • Copy Editing • For dissertations, articles, class synopses • For fiction: characterization, plot, dialogue, pacing, copy editing, proofreading Creative Writing Teacher University of CA, Riverside Extension 1982-present Fiction Workshop (Works in Progress): fall 2006, spring & summer 2007, winter 2008 Journalism Professor California Baptist University: 9/2006-6/2007 • Newspaper & yearbook production: Guided to award-winning publications • Proofreading, grammar, punctuation • Editing • Writing Skills • Copy editing • Teaching Author Self-employed 1980-present • 8 published full length works of fiction Editor & Consultant Self-employed 1980-present • Edited manuscripts for publication • Mentored writers •Proficient in MS Word (track changes), Adobe Acrobat, PowerPoint, Excel, Chicago Manual of Style, MLA and AP style. •Home Office Includes: OSX, Fax, Copier, High Speed Internet, and Telephone.

I love writing and recording music. Guitar tones, drum tones, and synthesis fascinate me. I enjoy creating new sounds and patches with intricate detail. Video games have always been a hobby of mine. I enjoy competitive online gaming and co-op titles. I have an odd quirk about me, I always strive to become needlessly efficient at any task. Whether it be audio editing, changing guitar strings, or file management; there is something about figuring out how to become faster and more efficient that is fun for me.
