I was called for a focus group survey about queso fundido and was given a short writing assignment: “Dear Queso, How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” Imagine Queso comes to life as a person. We want you to write a love letter to that person using the prompts below for inspiration. Is this person a he or she? How and where did you meet? Where/when do you hangout? What is his/her personality? How would you characterize your relationship? (e.g. a mother/daughter relationship? A friendship? A co-worker? A romantic partner? Etc.) What do you get out of the relationship? What keeps you committed to the relationship? What do you like most about him/her? How has your life changed since you met him/her? What has he/she added to your life? When you go to parties together, what role does he/she play? (e.g. is he/she in the corner watching the party happen? Is he/she introducing everyone? Etc. ) What would you miss most about him/her if he/she was gone?

Is it possible that I posted something with a typo? Why yes, yes it is. The extra 'Love,'. This is not indicative of my skills, it's due to the extra shot of Nespresso. Forgive me.

I've been writing a blog about my experiences as a divorced, now re-married, mother of two, and now step-mother to one. My angle is to share how divorce doesn't have to be acrimonious, but certainly has its moments of frustration, confusion and anger. The caveat to my life is that our exes (my and my husband's) live together. This makes the blog, and our lives, unique.

Hi James,
Thank You!

I looked over the article and have a few questions: what kind of editing do you want, i.e. paragraphs moved around to be made more 'reader friendly? Remind me who the audience will be and where the piece will be published.

Are you currently in Chicago?

About Me:
My talents are best utilized by people that want an alternative approach to reaching their goals. I offer a perspective that highlights skills and experiences in a fresh light.

I can accelerate potential with innovative routes to success in writing, a job search, on a social media platform, or in managing a classroom.

My core skills in editing transcend the page; I apply them everywhere. I follow the basics but I create a new path. I always get 'there' and so can you.

I have a B.A in Communications/Journalism, a Master's in Education (I taught for 11 years) and I write a blog, www.mydivorcelove.blogspot.com.

Editing and proofreading are my passions; Grammatical errors and typos excite me!

I agree with Mark Twain's philosophy of writing: keep it simple.
