    Experienced writing, editing, and software development professional

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

    I'm interested in clear-cut projects that provide immediate benefit to clients. I'm ready to step in, do some coding, editing, writing, patching -- whatever is required -- and then step out. I'm an XML specialist and data wrangler from way back, and have extensive background in scripting -- mainly XSL, Perl, VBA, and various shells, and I speak HTML and CSS/SASS as well. Some of these scripts eventually grew into fairly major utilities in their own right. I've been involved in the publishing field one way or another throughout my career; the early years were spent as a technical writer and trainer, so my skill set is a mix of technical and literary.

    Typist and Python Scripter

    United States - Last active: 25 days ago

    I'm looking to bring my clerical/typist skills from my civil service career experience into a freelance outfit. My writing strengths are in proofreading, and with a 60wpm typing speed I can also put together documents quickly. I have an Associates in Game/Web Design, so if you need me to write the documentation in HTML markup, I can also do that very easily; which can prove useful in writing blog posts or digital instruction manuals read on a browser. As an offshoot, I have programmed in Python as a hobby to learn game programming for several years, so I can also write very small calculation scripts as well, which is useful to do specific formulas you may use repeatedly, faster. I have worked for the state of New York for several years; having done volunteer service as a soldier in the state guard, inventory work as a Keyboard Specialist at a college, and technical support work as an IT Assistant at a hospital... These fields together I believe make a respectable background for writing, where attention to detail is important.

    United States - Last active: 26 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    In my Undergraduate Education at Eastern Connecticut State University, I graduated with dual degrees in English and Communication, and a Writing minor, all with a focus for creativity. In English, I not only took literature classes, but I took writing classes where I was able to combine my critical and creative thinking. I also became a Writing Tutor where I was able to help students with writing in every major, as well as with research, organization, and brainstorming ideas to connect their personality to their writing. I developed a thinking process that would not only help me, but allow me to be in the interest of my fellow student’s writing. This kind of thinking helps me personalize characters in writing. Even after I graduated from Eastern and no longer was a tutor at the university, I was able to help a woman, and Willimantic town idol, to edit and publish her life story on a museum website (it is there to this day). One of my strengths in writing is adaptation- I am able to effectively adapt my writing to any discipline and format, since I’ve had experience writing in many different genres. Currently I am enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University where I am pursuing my Master's degree in English and Creative Writing.
