    I think of words as living organisms that are able to transport the reader anywhere imaginable. Using their own special attributes, words are alive with substance and emotion and can even help us to 'feel' the situation. In fact, it's not surprising for all five senses to spring into action with the right combination of words. If I adequately describe the gagging stench of decaying meat and spoiled raw broccoli, you should feel your stomach lurch. Likewise, if I'm talking about being mesmerized by tiny bite-sized whimsical flying dragons, you should feel a smile start to spread across your face as you imagine them zooming in to investigate that sparkly thing that sits in the hole on the side of your nose. What a joy! My primary objective is to continue providing exceptional journalism and editorial services to the oDesk community. I am a published editor with several years of writing and editing expertise. I have edited self-help books, articles, poetry, vignettes and business communications. I have also ghost written a variety of reports and short stories. I like to describe my writing style as conversational with a 'zing.' Additionally, I love to format. I have created and formatted instructional documentation, personalized business letters using mail merge, business cards and stationery, meeting minutes, brochures, flyers and other types of material. No stranger to software technology, I enjoy making full use of built-in functionality.
