    Creative Writer

    United States - 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.
