    A freelance writer/editor and former secretary

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

    After spending much of my classes in high school in the secretarial field, I worked my way from a clerk to a secretary at a U.S. government facility in Rock Island, Illinois. When I quit to raise my children, I took up writing and editing. I have written several books and ghostwritten some, as well. I edited many manuscripts throughout the years. Besides that, I have also spent time working in bookstores, working my way up to supervisor. To do any of this work, I needed a eye for detail and needed to meet deadlines, which I did without problem. I also worked for Kelly Services as a temporary secretary, and I rarely went without work even though I was just part-time on their books. With Kelly Services, I had many different businesses request me specifically to work with them.

    Creative Writer

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6

    I'm a junior in college studying to go into the writing and publishing industry. I can edit and proofread on a professional level, though grammar is my weakest skill. I've been writing on and off since the 3rd grade and when it comes to creative writing I'm at an advanced level. I'm able to craft efficient, easy to read paragraphs with well developed and complex characters. I write many different genres, but mostly kid stories. I write a lot of Minecraft, but I also write other children's stories as well. Romance is another of my most written subjects. I can, however, write any subject or genre. Other things I write include reviews, articles, and product descriptions. Aside from writing, I also do data entry and voice acting.
