    Chelsea Dibble: Writer

    United States - Last active: 27 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am an extremely passionate writer and an excellent wordsmith. Much of my writing is witty, conversational, intelligent and unique; the stuff that isn't is being edited at the moment. I can write an upstanding non-fiction or informative piece or a compelling fiction piece. I also try to follow these ideals in my daily life: My best work is ahead of me. Get things done. Edit. Live each day with discipline. Apologize quickly and often. Write thank you notes. Listen to big ideas. Think of big ideas. Checklists are extremely rewarding. Write 1000 words a day for fun. Practice. If something can't be seen creatively, move to a different angle and look again. Everyone is their own protagonist. Respect that. Take responsibility for everything you do. Be a Renaissance man. Wear as many hats as possible for a few years. Specialize in something after those few years. Be annoyingly curious. Edit. Some of the topics I love writing about include: travel, health and fitness, finances, advice, fiction, advertising, small business marketing, heuristics, hiking, mountaineering, self-help, fashion, music, weddings and pedagogy.

    I had worked as a teacher both in a classroom and on-line settings for more than twelve years. Within the span of certain years in teaching, I was promoted twice. I became also a customer service representative in some call centers, where I took care of the different needs and complaints of the customers/clients. I did also remote trouble shooting for a cable company. At certain seasons. I write and conceptualize events for some companies and sometimes write ads and press releases. I had also my shares of telemarketing. I do not just work because of money but I want to be an asset and to develop more of myself in my chosen field. My passion for writing inspires me to teach. I have been writing for school plays , which are some adaptations and when I am not teaching, I write sequence guides and concepts of an ad or events, such as product launching.
