“It is a dark and stormy night…” That line has started many failed stories due to the fact it tells, not shows. The fact it is one of the biggest literary clichés around doesn’t help matters, either. As a writer, I strive to prevent such fluff from entering my work. Regardless if I provide you with researched blogs or a novel, you can rest assured that the material you receive will be unique and thought-provoking!
The School of Hard Knocks… plus Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) from 2008-2012. Yes, that is the place’s name! We all called it by the acronym, though my grandmother loved to refer to it as “eww-e-poo-e.”
2010 – Present: ACE Writing
I have run my own practice since the start of my career as a writer and editor. Projects include everything from ghostwriting novels to graduate thesis statements… though of course, everyone on line can say the same! What differentiates this wheat from the chaff is the fact that I tackled nearly every industry and writing topic – from whitepapers about nursing home activities to real estate listings.
2015 – Present: Speedlancer
Speedlancer is the spiritual successor to freelancing sites like Freelancer.com and Upwork. All of the writers and graphics designers are carefully chosen, so that there is no doubt as to the quality of the work. Client posts what they want done and the price they want to pay – however, the site avoids the problems of the other freelancing establishments by making certain the projects are high paying and that the clients pay into an escrow before posting the project.
2018: Trident Publishing
Worked as a science fiction ghostwriter for a number of projects. Terminated services after the client exhibited numerous internal issues vis-a-vis project management and general competency.
2015 – 2016: Affinity Express
Worked as a copywriter creating 1, 3, 5, and 10 page sites for clients sourced through Propel, Web.com, and VistaPrint. The entire process was handled in a nearly assembly-line fashion, with me working right dab in the middle between the interviewers and the web designers. Everything wound up hitting my desk – making it my job to make certain that the site was perfect before the developers even had a chance to drop in images! – The position was outsourced to the Philippines.
2015: KPR Media
Written several news articles for this company. They decided it would be cheaper to fire all the e-journalists rather than pay up when the bill came due. Keeping this one separate to showcase the power of the NDA – while I can’t say what I wrote, I can say they ran out on the check.
