The Talent of Virtuous Writing:
Virtuous, by meaning creative and eloquent. I intend to bring the natural skill at English that I possess along with a dedicated and committed work mindset to every work project assigned to me. I am known as a smooth talker; how is it that an Asian man born in an Asian country, would have such a strong affinity with the English language? It might be the number of books I read, but I would rather believe it is the entrainment of thought processes that by virtue of taste attempts to reach its highest expression, a cultivating attempt that refines the soul in the process, as it is with all self-attaining goals towards a conceived Master Work.
I have always had ideas of stories and other philosophical concepts from a young age, things that originated directly from my spirit; some might find their inspiration from external sources but most are internally originated. For the very first time I took thought to put them down on paper, was probably by 15 or 16, a short description of Berserkers in the Chaos Dwarfs. But I truly started writing for real about 2006, during my time in National Service, the compulsory national army conscription of 2 years. During that period of time, I have written countless stories, far too numerous to mention without giving a rough estimate of over 100.
My experience has led me to being hired by a copywriting company, LingoWhiz from Singapore, even though English is not my major, and it is a requirement in pursuing a career in copywriting. In any case, the company had no real complaints about my writing style, except that it should be more suited towards advertising and marketing; in order to do that, their idea was to use catchy phrases and words that presented the company's product in flavour. Although I do agree to some extent of the merits of that, I believe that my use of strong and intelligent intentions in my language style does the same in a subtler, roundabout manner, as evinced by my own marketing scheme within this short summary. In summary, my career goal is to make sure every piece of writing that comes from me is a work of personal art, a goal of personal aspiration rather than any held obligation to my client. I hope you don't mind.
