When I take on any writing project, I like to break it down like a puzzle and find the most effective means to deliver the message.

I quote from the book Ghostwriting 101:
"A public speaker who has a book published is more likely to be booked for seminars, workshops, and other speaking and training engagements."
Writing has been a passion and interest of mine since first grade when I penned my first short story about a snowman and a rabbit that fell in love. The snowman ended up melting in front of the fire after the bunny fell into an icy lake and needed to warm up. I was totally ahead of Frozen with the whole "some people are worth melting for" business. My abilities have progressed and developed since then. I wrote prolifically in college for various classes, thus my academic style is up to par. My real interest lies in blogging and lifestyle writing. I have experience in technical writing and am capable of such work, but I am also seeking to work more on the creative side of the spectrum. At the end of the day I'm a recent college graduate who is looking to pay her bills. I will work hard in any project I'm hired to do.
