    Creative Writing, Ghost Writing, Data Entry

    United States - Portfolio: 2

    Hey! What's up everybody? You have a very passionate, punctual, experienced writer and Army veteran here to try and make a living doing what I absolutely love to do, write! I love creative writing! From screenplays, to books, to erotica, poetry and even song lyrics, I've done a little of it all! I have 14 years of experience with screenwriting, with several completed scripts to show for it. I wrote a 200 page book, by hand, by the time I was 15. I've also written songs lyrics and poetry for friends and family for years! If you're an employer that needs something a little more simple, I also have a couple of years of experience with data entry. I can type 50-60 WPM. I can also post creative, witty, inspiring and thought provoking blog and forum posts that'll get you a lot of activity. I'm willing to negotiate prices and deadlines, if need be. If you want to work with me, let me know. Thanks in advance, Cleveland

    Hi, I have been writing speeches, articles and short stories; editing, researching and re-writing articles, speeches and creative writing for almost 20 years.

I have an excelent grasp of the English (american and british) and Afrikaans languages. You can rely on me to always strive for excelence and to finish my work in the least possible time but the highest possible quality. I find myself with a little more time on my hands lately and I'm looking for a new challenge, translating online keeps the creative juices flowing and the work stays interesting because you never know what will be next. Thank you for keeping my application in mind.

    Customer Service Refinement and Management l Creative Writing

    Philippines - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 28

    On Customer Service: My communication skills, passion to please and ability to genuinely care for others have landed me into a very rewarding and fulfilling job as a Customer Service Representative, promoted me to Customer Service Consulting and Refinement in just one month's time ( see http://screencast.com/t/rcGb2VtF) and to a Human Resource Manager in the subsequent month. Solving customers'; problems and making them feel good even in the most trying times is a great privilege that I cherish daily and the driving force that propels me on. On Writing: I'm an artist by heart, so everything I do results in a marriage of excellence and beauty. In the same manner that I can make a picture paint a thousand words, I can also paint a thousand pictures with my words. My passion for writing stemmed from my love affair with the English language and my innate zest for life. Give me a dead topic and I will fashion it, mold it, give it a lovely form, breath life into it and animate it. Whatever you want, however you want it. One of my strengths is that I am able to look at one scenario from different point of views. In the end, it's not about the writer, it's all about the reader, so I don't care whether I'm recognized or not. All I want to do is to contribute to the well-being of my collective self present in all thoughts, for in reality, I am my own reader in the person of all others. - Jean
