    Go-To Pro-Writer

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    My main objective as a writer is to provide clear, intriguing and detailed information to the world. I'm interested in most every subject, which means I'm very diverse. I have written non-fiction essays, papers and articles. I have also written, edited and published two fiction novels under the pen name Scarlet Clearwater. My favorite genres are sci-fi and erotica, however, I generally love to write anything, be it technical or creative. Currently, I'm writing a screenplay adapted from one of my novels. Professionally, I have experience in real estate, property management and law. I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies. I worked on oDesk last year for many hours, but due to a transfer in PCs, I lost my portfolio and had to start again. I hope this doesn't deter anyone from hiring me, as my work is top-notch.

    Writer, Ghostwriter, Proofreader, Editor

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Portfolio: 6

    Experience AND expertise. Knowledge AND know-how. It's those extra values that make me a perfect choice for your next project. Content is necessary, but not enough. I can create words and powerful images that will provide the perfect platform for your next great idea. But I can do more. I also provide a high level of expertise with the written word, having honed my skills in a variety of genres and for many highly-satisfied customers. Knowledge is needed, but not sufficient. Good writers know the "rules" of English. But great writing requires more. It is knowing how to use those rules to produce excellence in thought and meaning. It's not just putting words on paper in the "right order"; it's the know-how to polish those words to perfection. As a writer and teacher, as a creator and editor, I have honed my skills to the highest levels of expertise. Let me put that expertise to work for you.
