    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

    United States - Portfolio: 33

    I love how words can describe everything you think, feel and do. I love to bring my readers to where I am, as if they're sitting across from me drinking tea and having a chat. When I write a content article, I want them to come away with useful knowledge. When I write for the realm of horror, I want my readers to feel every shiver and icy breath. When I write a poem, I want them to be moved either by the beautiful pictures the words paint, or if horror, the disturbing after effects it leaves .When I write an emotional short story, I want them to shed tears. I believe you are defined by the words you use. I am an organized and dedicated professional to my work which is my life's blood. I have an excellent work ethic and I won't be happy with my work until you are satisfied too! Give me a try, you won't be sorry you did!
