    Writing - Creative and technical - English transcription

    United States - Last active: 06/19/2012 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    I enjoy writing essays and short articles, especially with a humorous twist or health related, so technical writer may not be the best possible description - just the only one that is close. Any sort of writing would interest me. Though I write best in a stream-of-consciousness, straight forward style, I also enjoy researching and then presenting the results of that research in an easy to digest style. Semi-technical or creative writing to supplement my retirement income would be my basic objective. I've developed a number of blogs using WordPress and am skilled with most of the Microsoft Office suite including Excel. My schedule is very flexible and I am very serious about living up to any commitments I make. I'm a quick study and easy to interact with. Test scores reflect my mental acuity. Top 10% and top 20% included in passing scores on tests taken in very short time.
