One Hundred Percent Original Work--One Hundred Percent Of-The-Time.

I have decided to add a new "agent" website to my current, which I have found quite trustworthy and dependable. I have been working with E-Lance.com, with great success, since 2013—having made $3,439.00, part-time, before my medical leave early in 2014. My overall rating was 4.99 out of 5 stars, with 13 out of 20 clients leaving feedback—all of it positive. In fact, 15% of my clients returned for more work. . .But enough numbers! We all know that numbers and statistics can generally be "spun" to make anyone seem great.
The simple truth is this: I am lucky enough to have a few of the necessary requirements to make a well-rounded freelance writer. First, I have amassed a rather large store of knowledge, on a wide variety of subjects. I am not just talking about book-knowledge, but real "working" knowledge (you know. . .experience). For instance, when I write about carpentry, plumbing, or electrical wiring; it's accurate, because at age 14 I began working with my Father doing just those things. Or, my knowledge on theater, lighting-scenery-makeup design, production, acting, stage management, etc. not only comes from a Masters degree from NYU—but also from working "summer-stock" theater in Buffalo to Off-Off Broadway in New York City. Listen—I could also go on about my experience in Music, Computer Programming, Emergency Medicine, Private Investigation and Security, even Paranormal Investigation & Demonology—but it all just ends up sounding like bragging. . .and that is definitely not my intent.
The real point is, along with knowledge one must also be able to "create." Anybody can "blah-blah-blah" about this subject or that subject, but to really create or "compose" a piece in which your reader develops a genuine interest, is a definite art—or at the very least a skill that requires specific talent. Aside from accumulating a bunch of knowledge, I have—through blessing or random gift (rather than developed through hard work and study)—a knack for storytelling and teaching. This is of course, what most types of writing are all about, and—depending on what I am asked to write, or more likely, what I have to say—I can usually find a nice fit with one client or another.
I love learning, I am a complete sponge for knowledge. The only thing I like more than learning, is teaching. There is something so rewarding about passing one's knowledge on to another. That, and plain old storytelling, are two of my favorite pastimes. Through the art of writing, I have found not only found an outlet for these passions—but I've found a way to make a living at the same time.
Life is Good, isn't it?
