    I love writing. Writing and rewriting are my pleasure. I'm looking for opportunities to write, edit, proof, and generally perfect your documents or communications. Proper grammar and spelling are keys to my writing success. If you are not a native speaker of American English, I can help you sound like one. Three specialties of mine are 1) making your documents objective by removing subjective or first person terminology, 2) ghost writing to make your communication sound just like you, and 3) assuring your communication is clearly understood by your target audience(s). If you need a writer for internal items like policies and procedures, business and strategic plans, training curricula, and intranet content, I can help! I would also like to work for you if you need a writer for customer facing documents like marketing pieces, business correspondence / email, and presentations or web content. In addition, I can write, edit or correct dialogue so that your speeches, advertisements or scripts sound natural and confident. Give me a try! I look forward to easing your mind about what you say.

    Freelance Writer & Author

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 6

    I believe in excellence. Writing isn't about just putting words on paper, it's about expressing ideas. Like any art, the writer has only been successful if the reader sees what he sees, hears what he hears, and feels what he feels. I am an experienced writer with over 180 books published; in addition to my 500+ page web site and 3 blogs. Let's just say, I've been writing for a while. I started writing as an engineer, writing proposals for the company I worked for. As such, my writing had to be clear, concise and answer the questions before they were asked. My writing had to convince the higher-ups in the company to spend money, make changes and believe in what I was saying. When I write, I strive for clarity, simplicity and something that will stir the reader to action. Any subject, no matter how dull it seems, has something in it that can excite; otherwise it would die from apathy. I want to find that thing which excites and express it to others. I have Five general areas in which I consider myself a strong writer. While each of them seem totally separate from each other, they form the structure of who I am, and where I've come from. 2 - Survival and Prepping - I started out as a survivalist as a teen, in the 1970s. That was the latter days of the Cold War and along with some friends, I had plans to head for the Colorado Rockies. Seeing the need, I started studying survival. I guess that just never left me. With the resurgence of interest in survival brought about in the modern prepping movement, I decided that my knowledge was needed. There is too much being written by people who don't know survival, to sell to this niche. When I write about it, it's from the viewpoint of personal experience. When I explain how to do something, it's because I've already done it. 1 - Technical subjects - I'm not talking about product reviews here, I'm talking about engineering technical subjects. As a former engineer, I can grasp technical issues, and explain them in a way that others can grasp what I am saying. Although not normally considered "technical" I must include the building trades amongst this, as I have also been a contractor. If you need "how-to" articles written on the building trades, I can almost do it in my sleep. I find that very few technical people can write well, and very few writers understand technical issues well. I guess that makes me the oddball. Maybe I'm the oddball you need. 2 - Education - I am passionate about the need to educate our children; to bring about reform in our schools; and to bring technology into the classroom. If something isn't done about our educational system, the United States will no longer be able to be world leader, we'll slide back into being a third world country. 3 - Marriage and Family - Amongst my personal writing, there is a fairly large section dealing with marriage, family issues, child raising, and maintaining a healthy marriage relationship. Of my three blogs, one is a daily posting; it is called: "Romantic Act of the Day." Need I say any more? 4 - Christianity and the Bible - Most of the books I have written are for Christians, the Church and teaching about the Bible. I hold a masters degree in Biblical Studies, and an honorary doctorate degree, awarded to me for my writing. No, I don't know it all, I'm just trying to learn it all. I won't say that I can't write about other areas, because I can. I have written a fair amount about business as well. But these four areas are my strengths. The question is, are those the strengths you need?

    Freelance Writer / Academic / Consultant

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    Freelance Writer / Journalist / Editor / Researcher / Analyst / Consultant / Academic / Historian I have almost 15 years of experience writing about, researching, and analyzing complex public policy, historical, political, and international affairs subjects ranging from UN peacekeeping to ancient Rome and my work is regularly published online by a variety of websites. My Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington and Lee University is a double major in History (concentration Asia and Russia) and Politics, and my Master of Science degree from the George Mason University School of Public Policy is in Peace Operations, a term which basically refers to everything that occurs in and concerns conflict/postconflict and disaster/postdisaster zones, especially international development, humanitarian relief and aid, and governance/institution building. I can easily provide a quality work product concerning any of these topics and many others, and can also easily research, write, and analyze new subjects. I also have extensive travel experience, including to Japan, Cuba, Liberia, Israel and the West Bank, and Jordan, to list some examples. I am also in the top 0.5% of oDesk contractors in terms of LinkedIn profile views and am a Top Rated oDesk freelancer. Please feel free to contact me regarding any of your research, writing, analysis, and consulting needs. I am also available for interviews as a subject-matter expert. NOTE TO CLIENTS: I DO NOT DO FIXED-PRICE CONTRACTS USING ODESK'S FIXED-PRICE SYSTEM. oDesk removed most protections for contractors with its new fixed price system so this is non-negotiable. HOWEVER, WE CAN AGREE TO A FIXED PRICE USING THE HOURLY SYSTEM TO BILL in that you can set an hourly cap on your end that will not allow the price to go past a certain point without your permission and action on your end and the system will not let me bill past this limit. In this situation, depending on our arrangement I can work until the job is done regardless of how many more hours past the cap it takes. My basic ground rules are 1.) any contract we make is going to only be the project outlined in that contract; additional work will require a separate contract as opposed to just adding to existing contract to keep things clear, and so that the client rating can reflect the actual work stipulated in said contract and not additional requests made after a contract is agreed upon 2.) I will be very responsive in my communication expect a similar responsiveness in return 3.) I ask that I not be held responsible for a third party's satisfaction with my work since you as the client, not I, have the relationship with the third party, but I will be happy to work off of feedback from a third party for any contract in order to address that third party's concerns 4.) if for any reason you are unsatisfied with my work I ask that you communicate to me the reasons why so that I may address any issues or offer a resolution that will bring you to a state of satisfaction I look forward to doing business with you!
